Joint Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy allows Dr Storm to look at and repair problems inside a joint. The minimally invasive technique can be used to diagnose joint problems, perform surgery or monitor disease and is often used to treat injuries in the knee, hip, wrist, ankle and shoulder.

During joint arthroscopy a tiny camera is inserted into your joint and images are displayed on screens for Dr Storm to see as he works with small surgical tools. The surgical equipment used in arthroscopy is very small so the incisions are able to heal much quicker than those made in traditional open surgery.

Some of the most common procedures include:

  • Rotator cuff surgery
  • Cartilage repair in the knee and shoulder
  • Ligament repair and reconstruction
  • Removal of loose bone and cartilage in the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle or wrist
