Technological Advancements: Arthroplasty & Arthroscopy
Recent advancements in joint replacement surgery have allowed surgeons to provide better result and better rehabilitation for patients. Examples of these advancements include more durable implants, less invasive surgical techniques, and upgrades implant designs. Due to advanced technology instrumentation and implants now enable arthroscopic surgery to be performed on all large joints and most small joints of the limbs. The size of incisions and reduction in tissue damage associated with arthroscopic surgery reduces morbidity and difficulty. Improvements in the accuracy high-definition ultrasonography, MRI, CT have limited the use of diagnostic arthroscopy to rare indications.
