Nanoscope Arthroscopy (Nano Arthroscopy)
Push Pounds Sports Medicine’s in-house orthopaedic surgeons are equipped to perform Nanoscope Arthroscopy to diagnose knee conditions, including ligament injuries, cartilage injuries, meniscus, ACL tears, and arthritis.
What is Nanoscope Arthroscopy?
Nanoscope Arthroscopy is a revolutionary medical procedure that uses modern technological tools to achieve an immediate and direct high-definition visualization of common problems of the knee. It allows surgeons to instantly see where the injury is located to immediately diagnose and begin treatment procedures.
Nanoscope operative arthroscopy uses a single-use camera attached to the tip of an instrument (typically 1.99mm or smaller), which is then inserted into the space in the joint through a needle-like cannula. Local anesthesia is applied to allow for relatively quick, painless, and minimally invasive insertion. The entire process can be performed in-office and while the patient is fully awake—no need to go into an operating room.
Advantages of Nanoscope Arthroscopy
Nano diagnostics are a preferred procedure to confirm conditions of the knees and joints because of their many benefits. Here are some of the advantages of Nanoscope Arthroscopy.
- It is a reliable and accurate alternative to MRI diagnostics. Because it is done in-clinic, there’s no need to endure waiting times to access MRI machines.
- Nanoscope operative arthroscopy is minimally invasive and allows for unlimited access to joint spaces.
- During the procedure, the patient is awake and fully coherent and can even watch the imaging screen as it is performed. The surgeon can then explain the visualizations in real-time.
- Nanoscope Arthroscopy is quick and relatively painless, allowing for a much speedier recovery time.
- It costs relatively less than having an MRI and exposes patients to fewer complications.
