Arthroscopic surgery—a less invasive procedure for shoulders, upper extremities and knees
Our board certified orthopedic and sports medicine trained surgeon—Dr. Davis Tsai—specializes in arthroscopic medicine and minimally invasive surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is an important option for patients. It is less invasive than traditional open surgery—it’s normally performed through two small incisions, which means that there’s less trauma to the body so patients typically heal faster and with less pain.
During arthroscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a very small incision through which a camera can be inserted directly into the injured joint. A camera is attached to a fiberoptic light source that is shown on a television screen. Our physicians can then look “live” at the injury and use the precise tools and techniques to solve the problem.
Arthroscopic surgery is typically done on the shoulders and knees and less often on the elbows and wrists.
