About the book

Arthroscopy has an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of joint disease.
This field has grown exponentially over the past decade resulting in less postoperative pain, risk of complications, and recovery times. Arthroscopy has evolved from a diagnostic tool to a therapeutic tool capable of treating a wide range of injuries and disorders in most of the joints. Many injuries, particularly those that at one time would have been career-ending for athletes, can now be addressed with arthroscopy allowing a quicker return to a competitive level. While arthroscopy has resulted in an overall decrease in morbidity compared with open techniques, it is still an invasive procedure and inherently involves risks.

With this book, we attempt to summarize the most common arthroscopic procedures, diagnosis, risks, and complications.
All of the above aspects are addressed in this book, which describes the current applications of arthroscopy, explaining the mechanisms of injury for each condition, and describing the role of arthroscopy in diagnosis and treatment.
