Elbow Arthroscopy

A thin camera (arthroscope) is used to look inside the elbow joint and the picture is seen on a TV screen. The arthroscope is placed inside the joint through a small incision. Fluid is gently pumped into the joint to fill the space and make it easier to see. Tools are passed through 2 or 3 more small cuts and watched within the joint with the arthroscope.
