Elbow Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows a surgeon to look inside a joint by using small incisions (portals) and instruments the width of a pencil. Most people are aware of knee and shoulder arthroscopy, but the elbow joint has many conditions that can be treated with arthroscopy as well. The elbow is the joint that connects the upper arm bone and the forearm bones.
