Arthroscopy (arthroscope) is the process of examining and treating joints. This method is suitable for diagnosing joint injuries and minor surgical interventions. It is usually done on the knee joint, but arthroscopy can be done on other joints (such as the shoulder or hip joint). Arthroscopy is a form of endoscopy. A probe called an arthroscopy is inserted into the joint through a small incision in the skin. The images of the joints are transmitted to the monitor in the treatment room via a miniature camera. The doctor uses these images to guide the arthroscopy. To get a better view, the space between the joints can be flushed with fluid (e.g. saline solution) during the arthroscopy and then suctioned off again. This rinse can also remove free cartilage tissue, for example it has a pain-causing effect in osteoarthritis.

Smaller operations can already be performed during the arthroscopy. To do this, the doctor inserts the appropriate tool through the second or third incision. After surgery, steps are important to improve joint function. Physiotherapy methods such as physiotherapy are suitable for improving mobility. Strengthening the muscles around it can also help support the joints and relieve pain. Arthroscopy plays an important role in diagnosing and treating joint diseases. Arthroscopy is mainly used for joint cartilage injuries such as osteoarthritis (joint wear), but can also be used for meniscus injuries, joint inflammation (arthritis) or cruciate ligament tears.
