The medical term for a joint scope is an Arthroscopy. A joint scope is a minimally invasive procedure that will allow an AVALA Ortho physician to diagnose and treat pain a patient may feel in a specific joint of the body.
A Scope Procedure
A scope procedure requires a very small incision and the use of a camera and very small instruments to help an AVALA physician visualize the anatomy of the joint.
A scope procedure can generally be performed on an out-patient basis. This means, after your procedure has ended, you will be taken to a room to recover for a few hours before being discharged on the same day as your procedure.
