What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a broad term for a number of conditions that destroy the workings of a normal joint. Literally arthritis means inflammation of the joint. Pain and swelling are the most common presenting symptoms. Patients may report stiffness also. There may or may not be a history of trauma (recent or remote)...

Why is Arthroscopy necessary?

Diagnosing joint injuries and disease begins with a thorough medical history, physical examination, and usually X-rays. Additional tests such as an MRI, or CT also scan may be needed. Through the arthroscope, a final diagnosis is made which may be more accurate than through "open" surgery or from X-ray studies.

What are the joints that can be viewed with an Arthroscope?

Although the inside of nearly all joints can be viewed with an arthroscope, six joints are most frequently examined with this instrument. These include the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, and wrist. As engineers make advances in electronic technology and orthopaedic surgeons develop new techniques, other joints may be treated more frequently in the future.

Will physical therapy be required after Surgery?

Major surgery on a joint may take two or three hours in the operating room. Getting a full range of motion, strength and flexibility back in that joint after surgery usually takes months. That's where pre-operative exercise and education and post-operative physical therapy programs come in - to ensure you're physically and emotionally prepared for surgery, and to maximize your recovery after surgery. Together, such programs are among the most important determinants in the success of your surgery.

What should I bring with me when I come for an Appointment?

When you come for your appointment Remember to bring the following:

  • Have your insurance cards available for scanning into the record
  • Copies of operation records, medical records, x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and so on from prior doctor visits
  • If you have seen a physiotherapist, please bring a progress letter from the therapist
  • If you have had surgery elsewhere, please bring a copy of your operation report
