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.
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.
