Arthroscopy is an established orthopedic procedure that is used to visualize, diagnose and treat problems of many joints in the body. Increasingly, we will see more surgeons performing arthroscopic procedures versus open joint procedures. Also, in the years to come, arthroscopic procedures of the hand and digits will be available with the development of technology. This module will provide education within the specialty of orthopedic surgery to increase the knowledge of CSTs and CSFAs. 


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about arthroscopy, when it is utilized and its potential complications. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe how arthroscopy is performed
  • List the equipment required for arthroscopic surgery
  • Discuss what types of surgery can be done with arthroscopy
