foot surgeryArthroscopic surgery is a form of surgery that uses tiny incisions to diagnose or repair a damaged joint. A small camera or surgical instruments may be introduced through the small incision to perform work on the joint. Arthroscopic surgery reduces the risk of infection and swelling by eliminating the need for large incisions. It can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of podiatric conditions, including chronic ankle pain, arthritis, ankle instability, or cartilage fractures.

Arthroscopic surgery may be a preferred method of treatment due to the reduction of trauma it causes. Smaller tools and surgical instruments cause less damage to areas surrounding the joint. Movement and exercise may be encouraged for postoperative care to speed up recovery.
