Ankle Arthroscopy Q & A

What is arthroscopy?

 

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses tiny incisions only about a quarter of an inch long to access, examine, and repair damage in your foot or ankle. 

 

With arthroscopy, the team uses a miniature camera and slim surgical instruments to perform your procedure. Arthroscopy is typically an outpatient procedure. 

When might I need an arthroscopy?

 

Arthroscopy is an effective way to evaluate and diagnose a number of different foot and ankle problems because the miniature camera allows the Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists team to view your inner foot and ankle in great detail. 

 

With arthroscopy, the team can find the exact source of your issues or confirm a diagnosis.

 

Depending on your diagnosis, the team may also use delicate surgical instruments to perform treatment right away. Arthroscopy is an effective way to treat many different foot and ankle problems, including:

 
  • Anterior or posterior ankle impingement (tissue entrapment or compression)
  • Bone fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Arthrofibrosis: Excessive scar tissue
  • Chronic infections
  • Loose cartilage or bone fragments
  • Severe ankle sprains (ligament tears)
  • Osteochondral lesions and other cartilage damage
  • Inflammation in joint lining

Arthroscopy is a very common procedure for sports injuries and other types of injuries. It’s also helpful for a number of age-related issues. 

What are the benefits of arthroscopy?

Because of the tiny incisions and slim surgical tools, arthroscopy creates far less tissue disruption and bleeding than traditional open surgery. Additionally, arthroscopy significantly reduces your risk of swelling and infection after surgery. 

One of the biggest benefits of the arthroscopic approach to foot and ankle surgery is reduced pain. With such small incisions and only mild tissue disruption, you can expect to have a smooth healing process with far less pain than that of traditional surgery. 

Generally, people who have arthroscopic surgery need less pain medication and enjoy a more comfortable recovery overall.

Your total recovery time is also faster with arthroscopy. Most people return to weight-bearing activities sooner with arthroscopic surgery than with open surgery.

If you have chronic foot or ankle pain, an arthroscopy could determine where the pain comes from and correct the issue at the same time. To learn more about this advanced minimally invasive procedure, call Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists, or click on the provided booking tool now.
