To begin with, Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that is conducted on the joint for examination and treatment purposes. Arthroscopy has several advantages over the traditional method. For instance, arthroscopy does not necessarily require a full opening of joint as with the conventional method. Arthroscopy, therefore, subjects less trauma to tissues, hence quicker chances of recovery. Another advantage is that arthroscopy procedures are easily carried out on almost all the body joints without any limitations. Surgical instruments used in arthroscopy procedures are simpler and effective in all treatment procedures.
Osteotomy is another orthopedic surgical procedure that involves cutting of the bone for realignment, shortening, or lengthening. It is an important method used in straightening bone and correcting the Hallux Valgus. Finally, an osteotomy is a useful procedure in relieving pain that is experienced by arthritis patients.
