Arthroscopy procedures are performed by board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Daniel Murphy of Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group near Brandon, Florida – a division of Florida Medical Clinic and the longest operating orthopedic practice in the Tampa Bay area. If you have an uncomfortable musculoskeletal condition that may require arthroscopic surgery, we encourage you to consult with Dr. Murphy and find the relieve you deserve.
Arthroscopy procedures can be used to visualize the inside of a joint, diagnose a condition, or repair an injury. In certain patients, these procedures may be a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open orthopedic surgeries. The procedure involves the use of an arthroscope, which is small, pencil-like tool with a small lens and lighting system that allows the surgeon to closely view and operate on the components of a joint.
The best course of treatment for each patient depends on a variety of factors, such as their diagnosis, symptoms, lifestyle, and overall health. However, arthroscopy procedures may be appropriate for a variety of patients, particularly those with:
- Rotator cuff tendon tears
- ACL or MCL tears
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Loose fragments of bone or cartilage
- Joint inflammation
- Other tendon tears or joint injuries
