Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is the use of a small rigid endoscopic camera inside a joint to look at cartilage, bone, bone chips, OCD fragments and other joint injuries. During arthroscopy, the surgeon can also removed damaged cartilage, chips and OCD fragments through tiny incisions while viewing the joint with the endoscopic camera.  Some of the common arthroscopic procedures we do are: hock and stifle OCD, bone chip removals from the carpus (knee) and fetlocks in race horses, tendon sheath and navicular bursa debridement and advanced procedures such as meniscal and cruciate ligament injections with PRP and stem cells and intra-articular fracture repairs such as C3 slabs. Arthroscopy is the most common surgical procedure performed at Elders Equine.
