Dr. Ketan Vekhande is a renowned Sports Medicine and Sports Injury Specialist in Aurangabad Maharashtra.

Arthroscopy is a relative newcomer to the world of surgical procedures. It is a minimally invasive approach to treating joint injuries and has proven to be highly effective at reducing recovery times and minimizing scarring in the affected area. Your surgeon will make three small incisions around the injured joint in order to insert a small camera called an arthroscope, along with specialized surgical instruments.

Benefits of arthroscopic surgeries include:

  • A smaller incision area
  • Minimal damage to healthy areas of the joint
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Reduced scarring

Though arthroscopy is an option for athletes and non-athletic people, these benefits can be crucial for those who need to return to sports or work as quickly as possible.
