Arthroscopic surgery refers to a medical operation in which the arthroscope is inserted into the damaged part through a tiny incision (about 1 cm) to repair damaged ligaments and cartilage, and to remove infection. This method dispenses with the need for large incision. Medical teams at the Joint Center of Nanoori Hospital, who have much experience with this treatment, can perform arthroscopic surgery on shoulders, (which are complex areas containing tendons and blood vessels), and will help you to make a quick recovery..

Unlike other surgeries with an endoscope, arthroscopic surgery can be done simultaneously with an accurate examination with an arthroscope, and can be performed on the main joints, such as the knees, shoulders, feet, elbows and wrists.

Meniscus tears, medial collateral ligament ruptures, and anterior cruciate ligament ruptures are the most common injuries, but posterior cruciate ligament ruptures, lateral or fibular collateral ligament ruptures and intra-articular fractures also frequently occur. In addition, ligament injuries (sprains) and osteochondral injuries of the ankle joints after ankle sprains have become common recently. Moreover, more people are visiting the hospital because of shoulder labrum injuries, tendon ruptures, fractures and dislocation of the shoulders. These injuries that occur due to sports activities and all diseases in the joints due to these injuries are the object of arthroscopic surgery.

For patients in the early or middle stage of degenerative arthritis, arthroscopic surgery is very effective. Patients with pain in their joints due to rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis and nonspecific arthritis can have their pain considerably relieved through this surgery.

In the event that a joint condition cannot be cured by arthroscopic surgery or the functions of a joint cannot be fully restored, artificial joint surgery will be performed to replace damaged joints. Artificial joint surgery is normally for damaged knee joints, and the elderly prefer this surgery in order to improve their general quality of life. After replacing injured joints with artificial joints, patients can carry out normal daily activities, and Nanoori Hospital uses supercurve-shaped artificial joints, which are long-lasting and comfortably fit into the shape of the body.

Articular cartilage cannot be repaired when it is injured or changed by degenerative deformation, because it does not have blood vessels and nerves. The method of stem cell treatment for cartilage repair conducted by Nanoori Hospital is to inject umbilical cord blood stem cells directly into the injured area of cartilage, which is effective in the reparation of the cartilage. When the stem cells are differentiated and growth factors are secreted, they repair the injured tissues. The surgery is a tailored treatment that can be conducted immediately after an examination and it is a convenient and differentiated treatment that can repair injured cartilage.
