Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that provides us with a direct view of any large joint of the body. Through very small surgical incisions, we can place a camera in the joint and have a very high resolution 4K live feed. We can instantly assess the condition of the cartilage, ligaments and other elements of the joint and if it is necessary to perform surgeries utilizing special arthroscopic tools.
Arthroscopy gives us the opportunity to avoid large and painful incisions, allows rapid mobilization and rehabilitation and provides high precision in our surgeries. It is now internationally the method of choice for dealing with the majority of athletic injuries and many other joint disorders.
Our multiyear hands-on experience in operating arthroscopic surgeries in Greece and abroad, attending specialized seminars and lifelong learning about all topics and updates related with arthroscopic surgery, guarantee the best possible treatment of the joint’s issues. We cooperate with the best companies in the field, and we always utilize materials and methods of proven value.
Arthroscopy of the shoulder brought a real revolution to the surgical treatment of painful shoulder problems. In cases where conservative treatment has failed, as well as in cases where surgery is required, shoulder arthroscopy can provide a solution providing safe, rapid and painless treatment.
Arthroscopy can treat problems such as:
- Supraspinatus Tendonitis/ Rotator Cuff Tears/ Biceps Pathology
- Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
- Torn Supraspinatus Tendon /Rotator Cuff
- Complete Rotator Cuff Tear
- Shoulder Dislocation / Shoulder Instability
- Shoulder Arthritis
Knee was the joint from which arthroscopic surgery began, and the steps that have been taken since then are truly impressive. Thanks to arthroscopic surgery, problems are treated faster with remarkable accuracy and effectiveness. In the recent past patients suffered from large surgical incisions and were forced to go through prolonged periods of recovery. Nowadays, the vast majority of arthroscopic knee surgery is performed as one-day surgery and the patient stays in the hospital for a short time, while rehabilitation is very fast, with the patient practically leaving the hospital walking.
Arthroscopic can treat problems such as:
- Μeniscus Tear
- Chondral damage/chondropathy
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament Tear
- Patellar Dislocation
- Knee Synovitis
Arthroscopy of other joints
Arthroscopy is not limited to the knee and shoulder joints. Arthroscopy can be performed in all the major joints of the body such as the hip, ankle, elbow, and wrist, if there are the appropriate indications.
