Arthroscopic Surgery 

Arthroscopic surgery, also called arthroscopy, is a procedure that allows surgeons to see, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint. An arthroscopy requires only small incisions and is guided by a miniature-viewing instrument.

Before arthroscopy existed, surgeons made large incisions that affected the surrounding joint structures and tissues. The traditional surgery method carries an increased risk of infection and requires a longer time for recovery.

In contrast, arthroscopy is less invasive. It has a decreased risk of infection and shorter recovery period. Today, arthroscopic surgery is one of the most common orthopedic procedures and can be performed right in our own out-patient surgery center. Dr. Alan Binkley is fellowship trained in arthroscopy to diagnose and repair injuries and problems affecting the joints in the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle
