Arthroscopy

Comprehensive Foot & Ankle Care From Experts

If you have a chronic foot or ankle condition that hasn’t responded to at-home treatments, you may be a good candidate for foot surgery. While you may think of traditional invasive foot surgery when you imagine this type of procedure, our experts offer arthroscopic foot surgery. This procedure uses a fiber-optic camera and tiny tools to repair foot or ankle damage. Foot and ankle arthroscopy in Manhattan, NY, can be used for various foot surgeries and to treat a wide range of foot and ankle injuries and conditions.

What Is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that can be applied to different types of foot and ankle conditions. The benefits of arthroscopy over traditional surgical techniques include:

  • Less pain. You will require less wound care, have less pain, and fewer unsightly scars as a result of the procedure.
  • Less trauma. Arthroscopy involves smaller incisions — they only need to be large enough to fit the small tools and camera. This means that your wounds can be dressed with smaller stitches, and your wound will be smaller and easier to heal.
  • Lower risk of infection. Since arthroscopy opens up less of the body’s inner structures, exposure to germs and bacteria is limited.
  • Precision. Because arthroscopic procedures use a camera, they are highly accurate.

What Can Arthroscopy Treat?

Some common conditions treated with arthroscopy include:

  • Bone spurs in the ankle
  • Posterior ankle pain
  • Torn ligaments
  • Removing bone fragments
  • Restoring damaged or torn cartilage
  • Inflamed joint linings or scarring within joints

Surgery & Aftercare

Arthroscopy is a safe procedure. Before your appointment, you will receive a type of anesthesia to relax you and make the procedure comfortable. Aftercare usually includes pain relief medications, rest, ice, temporary splints, crutches, and physical therapy. Our doctor will evaluate your unique needs and explain your treatment in detail to ensure you are fully informed. Call our friendly office to schedule your consultation!
