What is arthroscopic surgery?

As with many other conditions, knee pain is treated with nonsurgical options first, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic SurgeonsOff Site Icon (AAOS). Surgery is considered only when nonsurgical options such as immobilization, physical therapy, or drug therapy have been exhausted, according to the AAOS.

Elbow arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that is used to treat conditions that cause pain, according to the National Institutes of HealthOff Site Icon (NIH). In this procedure, a small surgical tool equipped with a camera is inserted through small incisions, allowing the surgeon to see inside the elbow and carry out the procedure, according to the NIH.
