Arthroscopy is a procedure that allows your orthopaedic surgeon to look inside your joints and treat any abnormality noted.
Dr Pirjol will begin your arthroscopy by inserting a camera into your joint. Images will then be displayed on screens for your orthopaedic surgeon to see as he works with small surgical tools. The surgical equipment used in arthroscopy is particularly small, which means that the incisions made in the body will be small, less painful, and will heal much quicker than those made in traditional open surgery.

Your orthopaedic surgeon will conduct a thorough physical examination and order x-rays and most probably an MRI scan before considering wrist surgery. After the procedure, your doctor will prescribe pain medication.
