What is Ankle Arthroscopy?

Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a fiber-optic viewing camera and small surgical tools to operate in and around the ankle joint through small incisions. Ankle arthroscopy is performed for the surgical evaluation and treatment of a variety of ankle conditions, including ligament reconstruction and repair. Ankle arthroscopy is also used for the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Instability
  • Impingement
  • Infections
  • Synovitis

Ankle arthroscopy is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure can usually be performed as an outpatient because of its minimally-invasive nature. A large percentage of patients undergoing ankle arthroscopy will experience good to excellent results.

Dr. Bart Eastwood of Sideline Orthopedics is fellowship-trained in the minimally-invasive arthroscopic treatment of the ankle. He is an orthopedic and sports medicine surgeon specialized in the advanced techniques of arthroscopic surgery.
