Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the internal structure of a joint is examined to evaluate or sometimes treat the prevailing condition using an arthroscope. Common joint conditions for which arthroscopy is considered include cartilage tears (meniscus tears), ligament strains and tears, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction and trimming damaged cartilage. Arthroscopy is commonly used in the evaluation of knees and shoulders but can also be used to examine and treat conditions of the wrist, ankles and elbows. The advantage of arthroscopy over traditional open surgery is that the joint does not have to be opened up fully. This reduces recovery time and increases the rate of surgical success due to less trauma to the connective tissue. Arthroscopy in case of joint pains due to injury or meniscal tear injury is one of the best options.
Arthroscopy is done in most of the hospitals in India. However, an arthroscopic surgeon performing the arthroscopy has to be well versed in performing the arthroscopy. The cost of arthroscopy in India varies from hospital to hospital and surgeon to surgeon. One of the best hospitals for Arthroscopy in India is GNH Hospital Gurgaon, India. Also one of the best arthroscopic surgeon in India is Dr. Praveen Tittal at GNH Hospital, Gurgaon, Haryana, India. Dr Tittal is one of the few arhroscopic surgeons in India who is trained specifically in Arthroscopic Surgery at Paris and performs arthroscopy for all joints including knee, elbow, shoulder and other small joints.
Arthroscopy as a diagnostic procedure costs USD 1000 while ACL / PCL repair would cost USD 3500 at a good hospital by a good arthroscopic surgeon.
Arthroscopy is still the gold standard for diagnosing and managing Ligament injuries like the ACL or PCL tear. These days the advances in the field of MRI have reduced the diagnostic role of Arthroscopy but still it is the choice of procedure for repairing any kind of ligament tear in the Knee or Shoulder Joint. In the hands of good arthroscopic surgeons the procedure is extremely safe, minimally invasive and gives excellent results.
