Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician
Our primary care doctors and specialists may recommend arthroscopy to repair damage in your shoulder or knee if medication and physical therapy fail to relieve your pain.
Our doctors will insert an arthroscope, a thin tube with a camera mounted on the end, through one of three or more small incisions. They will view the procedure on a screen in the operating room as they guide surgical instruments through the other incisions to repair cartilage, bones, tendons and ligaments. Recovery time depends on the complexity of the repair and factors such as your age.
