Arthroscopic surgery is the most common orthopaedic treatment. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery where an arthroscope is inserted into a join to simultaneously examine and repair any damage.

The orthopaedic surgeon views an image projection of the inside of the joint and will look for any damage, assess the type of injury, and repair the problem.
