Arthroscopy

Arthroscopic surgery with the aid of modern endoscopic tools, allows us to treat various injuries in any joint, in a minimal invasive way, followed by a short stay in the clinic and fast rehabilitation.

 When the knee is concerned, the latest evolutions are:

  1. Improvement of the tools available for meniscal repair.
  2. Availability of a synthetic or cadaveric whole meniscal graft for transplantation, when the entire meniscus has been removed and we want to prevent osteoarthritis.
  3. Modern techniques for treatment of cartilage lesions – especially large ones.
  4. Treatment of injury or instability of the patella.
  5. Appropriate treatment of knee instability following complex injuries involving tears of the anterior cruciate ligament, the posterior cruciate ligament, the collateral ligaments, and the posterior ligamentous complex.
  6. Improvements in the technique of fixation of the anterior cruciate ligament.
  7. Arthroscopically assisted osteosynthesis of intra-articular fractures of the knee under direct vision.

In the shoulder the latest evolutions are:

  1. Improvement of the ways to repair the supraspinatus muscle
  2. Treatment of shoulder instability and tears of the glenohumeral ligaments
  3. Decompression of the subacromial space in cases of subacromial impingement
  4. Treatment of tendinopathy of the long head of the biceps muscle
  5. Treatment of shoulder osteoarthritis

In the elbow the latest evolutions are on the treatment of:

  1. Medial and lateral epicondylitis
  2. Elbow instability and ligamentous injuries
  3. Osteoarthritis and the presence of loose bodies
  4. Chondral and osteochondral lesions
  5. Arthroscopically assisted osteosynthesis of intra-articular fractures of the elbow, especially of the head of the radius, under direct vision

When the ankle is concerned, the latest evolutions are on the treatment of:

  1. Osteoarthritic changes of the ankle joint
  2. Chondral and osteochondral lesions
  3. Ankle instability
  4. Impingement syndrome
  5. Osteochondritis dissecans and osteonecrosis of the ankle
  6. Removal of loose bodies
  7. Arthroscopically assisted osteosynthesis of intra-articular fractures of the distal part of the tibia, and the ankle under direct vision

In the hip the latest evolutions are on the treatment of:

  1. Osteoarthritic changes
  2. Chondral and osteochondral lesions
  3. Femoral acetabular impingement syndrome (FAI)
  4. Osteochondritis and osteonecrosis of the femoral head
  5. Removal of loose bodies
