Arthroscopy, commonly used in human medicine, has also been used for years in veterinary medicine.

Arthroscopy allows, without the large incisions of conventional surgery, to explore the interior of the joints and treat injuries of intra-articular structures such as ligaments, tendons, menisci and cartilage.

By only needing small holes in the tissues, the pain during surgery and postoperative is less and the recovery of the patient is faster . This is how most elbow, shoulder, and knee injuries are treated.

Currently, there is needle arthroscopy, which is a very fine all-in-one arthroscopy, therefore, even less invasive. Needle arthroscopy – Nanoscope with a diameter of 1.9 with a camera, LED light source connected to a tablet-type monitor allows the surgeon to reach areas of difficult access and can replace magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of joint injuries.

The Nanoscope system is available in the traumatology service directed by the veterinarian José Rial of the Anicura Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital.
