These are interventions that are performed primarily in two ways. There is a traditional way which is known as open surgery. There is another modern way which is arthroscopically. In this case, an arthroscope is made use of.
Arthroscopy can be used for treating any problems that may be inside the joint. It can also be used for the repair of the soft tissue. It can be used for treating of torn ligaments and tendons.
