Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure requiring only small incisions, which can reduce the patient's recovery time. Surgeons use an arthroscope (a type of endoscope) to assess and repair damage to the interior of a joint. Surgeons at Wellington Regional Medical Center perform arthroscopic procedures to treat shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle conditions.

Hip and Knee

Arthritis, injuries and other degenerative disorders may require surgery. Total hip replacements (in which diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials) are most commonly used to treat progressively severe arthritis in the hip joint. Total knee replacement is generally performed when a person has an advanced degenerative joint disorder in which the moving surfaces of the knee deteriorate, leading to severe pain, limitation or loss of function or deformity of the joint.
