Arthroscopy (‘keyhole surgery’) is a fundamental component of modern joint surgery. It prevents major procedures, because the surgical instruments can be guided to the joint via probes. At the OCZ, we carry out arthroscopies on all the major joints. In the region of the upper extremities in particular, this is one of the key focuses of our treatment. Aside from joints frequently subjected to arthroscopy, such as shoulders, hips and knees, we also perform treatments on the ankle joint and elbow. Dr Raum is a proven specialist in treatment of the upper extremities.
Shoulder arthroscopy addresses the various pathologies and injuries of the shoulder joint. These include:
- Shoulder impingement syndrome
- Acromioclavicular joint injuries and arthroses
- Shoulder dislocation (luxation)
- Tendonitis and tendon injuries (rotator cuff injuries)
In these cases, we employ all modern treatment methods to guarantee the preservation and recovery of the shoulder joint.
Elbow arthroscopy is a surgical technique carried out in only a few centres. It is used in particular to successfully treat cartilage injuries, joint stiffness and loose joint bodies.
Knee arthroscopy is one of the most frequently performed arthroscopic operations. At the OCZ, we treat diseases and injuries such as the following:
- Meniscus tears
- Cartilage damage
- Cruciate ligament tears
Like elbow arthroscopy, ankle joint arthroscopy is only performed in a few centres. In this case, it is cartilage damage and joint stiffness in particular that are treated surgically.
