Fiberoptic technology has led to the creation of the arthroscope, an instrument that allows the surgeon to look directly inside your joints, and diagnose and treat many problems.

The arthroscope has rapidly expanded the field of sports medicine. Many arthroscopic procedures we perform, such as an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction, once required major open surgery and a hospital stay of at least two days. We now perform an arthroscopic procedure to repair the ACL utilizing a patella tendon graft or hamstring graft, which requires only minor incisions and results in same-day discharge from the hospital. In many cases, patients who undergo arthroscopic procedures can return to normal activities in as few as one or two days.
