Arthroscopic Surgery

We understand that surgery can be daunting, that’s why Ogden Clinic offers the latest, most innovative methods to give you less pain and swifter recovery.

Arthroscopic surgery is an excellent option for Ogden patients to treat joint problems, particularly in the shoulder and wrist. If you have a painful condition that has not responded well to non-surgical treatment, your Ogden Clinic Orthopedic Specialist may suggest this minimally invasive procedure.

The surgeon performs arthroscopy with local anesthetic. A slender instrument called an arthroscope is inserted into the joint through a small incision. An optical lens built into the arthroscope allows the surgeon to correct the condition with minuscule instruments.

Common arthroscopic procedures include:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Repair for reoccurring shoulder dislocation
  • Repair of ligaments
  • Removal of loose cartilage, inflamed tissue, or bone spurs

Like open surgery, arthroscopy gives the surgeon a clear view of the problem area, but compared to open surgery, arthroscopy is much more convenient. With arthroscopic surgery, Ogden patients have less post-operative pain and faster recovery. This procedure is often more affordable than open surgery since it can be done on an outpatient basis.
