What is an Athroscopy?

Sunday, August 9, 2015
posted by Jim Murphy

COLLIEDoes your pet have a bad shoulder, knee or elbow? If this is the case your vet may refer you to an Arthroscopic Surgeon. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive way to diagnose and treat a variety of joint conditions. It involves making very tiny incisions into your pets joint. One incision allows a surgeon to insert surgical instruments and another will allow an arthroscope to be inserted. This is a tiny telescope with a light. Dr. John Payne of the Pittsburgh Veterinary and Emergency Center says that the arthroscope allows the surgeon to view the joint and see everything that’s going on. He also says that the incisions are so small that infections after surgery are very rare. After surgery,you should see an improvement in your pets condition. Your vet will prescribe any pet medication that may be necessary.

Remember, your pets count!
