Nanoscope Arthroscopic Surgery
Nanoscope arthroscopic surgery is revolutionizing how patients experience in-office diagnosis and treatment for conditions such as arthritis and cartilage damage. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our specialist care providers can facilitate full visualization of the joint, surrounding tissues and areas that were historically problematic to capture with imaging technology.
The result is the availability of same-day diagnosis and minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery. Arthrex’s Nanoscope technology is designed to allow experienced orthopedic surgeons to use advanced techniques, reduce the risks of secondary damage to joints and soft tissues and provide treatment in a comfortable office setting.
Waiting times are significantly reduced thanks to the innovation of Arthrex’s Nanoscope. Patients who are suffering from chronic arthritis or other conditions of the joints often have to wait long periods for an MRI. When you trust your care to Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians, diagnosis and treatment recommendations are made during the same appointment.
Minimally Invasive Arthroscopy
One of the barriers to treatment for patients with joint conditions is limited availability of operating theatres. Traditionally, arthroscopic surgeries required a team of specialists coming together to achieve optimum outcomes. With a minimally-invasive arthroscopy guided by Arthrex’s Nanoscope technology, the entire process can be completed in most settings with limited staffing requirements.
As the patient, you get to see high-definition, real-time images of a damaged joint or cartilage. Previously, surgeons had to rely on X-ray or MRI images, along with anatomical descriptions, to illustrate the wear and tear caused by conditions such as arthritis. Arthrex’s Nanoscope advanced imaging uses a combination of 1mm sensors, LED lighting, image management and intuitive tablet control to paint a full picture.
These visuals are useful in helping patients play an active role in treatment decisions. When you can see the progression of damage to cartilage or bone, it is easier to make the choices that will lead to better quality of life. Faster, safer treatment is made possible with Arthrex’s Nanoscope and minimally-invasive arthroscopy at Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians.
Wrist Arthroscopy for TFCC Tears
Wrist Arthroscopy for TFCC tears is one of many procedures offered in combination with Arthrex’s Nanoscope technology at our Atlanta, GA offices. This type of injury can cause pain, discomfort and limited wrist movement. The TFCC contains cartilage, ligaments and tissues which are located between the radius and ulna.
If you are experiencing pain on the outside of the wrist that is persistent, or presents when the joint bends or rotates, you may have suffered a TFCC tear. Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians can provide diagnosis and treatment through precision arthroscopy with the aid of Arthrex’s Nanoscope for effective relief.
Accurate diagnosis of TFCC tears is assured with the innovation that Arthrex’s Nanoscope places under the hands of our experienced surgeons. We can save you needlessly wasted time waiting for confirmation through traditional imaging methods. Part of the Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians commitment is providing patients with convenience – which can mean same-day diagnosis and treatment, leading to faster pain relief.
