Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that diagnoses and treats joint problems. It is an improvement over the traditional open surgery for checking and fixing joint problems because it only takes a very small incision to insert a tube with a fiber-optic camera on it in order to see what the problem is. The surgeon is able to see inside the joint which results in a better diagnosis with very little recovery time. At the same time, in some instances, the surgeon can already fix the problem during arthroscopy with the use of additional pencil-thin surgical tools and other small incisions. The recovery period is quite fast too.
