Surgeons use arthroscopy to examine and to treat problems in the wrist. This technique involves making a small incision, inserting a miniature camera through it and viewing inside the wrist on a large TV screen. If necessary, a doctor can operate, using small instruments mounted near camera. Physicians use arthroscopy on the wrist for procedures required for chronic wrist pain, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, ligament repairs and removal of cysts. Arthroscopic surgery typically leaves little scarring and allows for rapid recovery and pain reduction.
