Arthroscopy can be part of your thorough joint treatment

Arthroscopy is a commonly performed procedure that can help you get back on your feet in no time. Using only a small incision in the skin, Dr. Perry can examine and treat your joint problems, sometimes on an out-patient basis.

A complete diagnosis of your condition may include x-rays, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. If Dr. Perry needs more information, a tiny arthroscopic camera can be inserted into your joint for a closer examination.


During the same procedure, miniscule instruments can treat many different kinds of joint damage. Pain is usually minimal and recovery often swift.
