Ankle arthroscopy surgery uses a small pencil sized camera called an arthroscope to diagnose and repair tissues inside or around a person’s foot and ankle. Doctors create small incisions so that the camera can be inserted and examine the problem area to assess the damage and determine the best method of treatment. Any tears in the muscle, tendon, or cartilage will be repaired and any damaged tissue will be removed.
Once the surgery is over, the incisions will be closed with stitches and covered with a bandage.
Ankle surgery is performed mostly as an outpatient procedure and is beneficial because it reduces risks, has few complications, has less post-operative pain, has a faster recovery time and results in less scarring. Even though arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery, it is important to understand all of the risks and to follow the doctor’s instructions.
Arthroscopic surgery is often used for:
- Cartilage Damage
- Removing Bone Spurs
- Removing Loose Debris/Scar Tissue
- Treatment of Posterior Ankle Pain
Like with any surgery there are risks involved:
- Damage to the surrounding nerves
- Damage to the blood vessels
- Damage to the joint
- Blood clots
