Ankle Arthroscopy Abroad

Ankle arthroscopy is a surgical procedure orthopedic surgeons use to diagnose and treat problems inside the ankle. A small incision is made in the skin and then a pencil-sized instrument, called arthroscope, is inserted to provide us a clear view of the ankle interior.

Compared with standard open surgery, which requires a larger incision in the skin, arthroscopy is less painful, carries less risk of infection, and has a faster recovery time.

Modern arthroscopy developed in the 1960s, and was first performed in the knee. With technological improvements of arthroscopes and higher-resolution cameras, the procedures have become highly effective, in such a way that arthroscopy is today one of the most common orthopedic procedures.

Ankle arthroscopy is recommended for the following ankle problems:

  • Loose Bodies

  • Osteochondritis

  • Soft tissue pathologies: synovitis, adherences

  • Calcifications
