Arthroscopic Surgery for Joint Injury Repair Performed Near Lakewood, NJ
At New Jersey Joints near Lakewood, NJ, our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons perform arthroscopic surgery to treat many sports-related injuries for patients of wide-ranging ages and abilities – from recreational athletes to elite college and professional competitors. Our goal is to restore optimum musculoskeletal function to each patient, return them to their normal daily activities and, ultimately, allow for full athletic participation.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that allows a surgeon to look inside a joint using a thin viewing instrument called an arthroscope, which has a light source and tiny camera attached. During surgery, the images captured by an arthroscope are magnified and projected onto a high-resolution monitor in the operating room. By continually viewing these detailed images and expanding the joint with a flow of a saline solution, a surgeon can work within the confined space of a joint with a high level of precision.
