Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic Surgery | Arthroscopy Fresno CAIn cases where surgery is necessary, arthroscopy is the orthopedic gold standard. Dr. Mochizuki specializes in arthroscopy, a minimally-invasive procedure that allows doctors to diagnose and sometimes treat joint injuries and disease through small incisions in the skin. It is often performed to confirm a diagnosis made after a physical examination and other imaging tests such as MRI, CT Scan or X-rays.

During an arthroscopic procedure, a thin fiberoptic light, magnifying lens and tiny television camera are inserted into the problem area, allowing the doctor to examine the joint in great detail.

Because it is minimally invasive, arthroscopy offers patients many benefits over traditional surgery:

  • No cutting of muscles or tendons
  • Less scarring
  • Faster and more comfortable rehabilitation
  • Less bleeding during surgery
  • Smaller incisions
  • Faster recovery and return to regular activities
