What is Wrist Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy allows the surgeon to view inside of your wrist joint without making a large open incision. Not only is this procedure diagnostic, but it also allows for certain corrective treatment interventions. Procedures that may be done through the scope includes removal of loose tissue, ligament repair, ganglion cyst removal, synovectomy, or TFCC (triangular fibrocartilage complex) repair. The recovery time for most arthroscopic procedures is quicker than open procedures, allowing patients to return to work and function sooner, rather than later.
