Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that enables surgeons to evaluate and treat injuries affecting the ligaments, cartilage and bones of the wrist. In this procedure, the surgeon makes several small incisions around the wrist joint and inserts a miniature camera (called an arthroscope) to see inside. Tiny instruments are used to remove loose or damaged cartilage or repair ligament tears. The technique allows a full view of the wrist without having to make a larger incision that cuts through more tissue and muscles. Patients experience less pain and blood loss, fewer complications, and a faster recovery.
