What is arthroscopic joint surgery?
Through arthroscopic joint surgery, degenerative and accidental injuries to joints can be discovered and treated by means of a joint endoscopy.
This technique is minimally invasive, i.e. particularly gentle. Compared to open surgery, it is therefore associated with less pain and the subsequent healing can take place more quickly. It is used especially for knee or shoulder injuries, but also for ankle and elbow injuries.
Gentle arthroscopic surgical techniqueThe gentle technique of arthroscopy not only minimises the risk of infection after the operation and the recovery time. The comparatively small incisions also ensure a cosmetically more beautiful operation result afterwards.
Knee and shoulder arthroscopy
In knee and shoulder arthroscopy, so-called keyhole surgery, small incisions are made in the affected joint to identify and treat the problem. The advantage of this minimally invasive technique is particularly evident in retrospect: fewer muscles are injured through smaller incisions, which ensures less pain and a faster healing process.
It is precisely in this field that Dr Braune, as a joint specialist, has specialised in arthroscopic interventions in knee and shoulder joints.
