Knee and shoulder arthroscopy are very effective surgeries of the knee and shoulder joint that are designed to keep our patients active both in their daily life and sporting activities. They require only a small incision, through which a tiny camera and sophisticated, small surgical instruments are inserted. High-resolution cameras and monitors allow doctors a clear view of the joint areas. The Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group board certified surgeons perform knee and shoulder arthroscopy to alleviate pain caused by rotator cuff tendon tears, ACL and other ligament tears, meniscus and other cartilage tears, arthritis, and instability. Knee and shoulder arthroscopy can relieve disabling pain and improve joint performance. The procedures are typically outpatient and are less painful and invasive than joint replacement, and recovery is faster than after joint replacement surgery.
