Wrist Arthroscopy

Wrist arthroscopy is used mostly for diagnosis but in some cases can be used for treatment. It works best for showing ligament tears, or damage to the TFCC or cartilage. Arthroscopy involves using a small instrument called an arthroscope that allows for the surgeon to see inside the joint without making large incisions into the muscle and tissue. Often times, diagnosis and repairs are both done during the arthroscopy procedure.
