Arthroscopy is a type of minimally-invasive surgery that is used to diagnose and treat issues affecting the joints, including the shoulders, knees, ankles, wrists and elbows. Arthroscopy uses a thin, flexible scope called an arthroscope. The scope is inserted through a small incision near the joint, and the joint is inflated with a small amount of inert gas to widen the area and make it easier for viewing. The camera at the end of the scope sends images back to the monitor so the doctor can determine the cause of symptoms or use specially-designed instruments to perform joint repair procedures as well as procedures to release nerve impingements that can cause pain and numbness. Arthroscopy can be used to repair soft tissues, including the rotator cuff and ligaments and tendons that support the joint and help it function, and it can also be used to repair joint surfaces that have been damaged by trauma or arthritis.
Some of the conditions more commonly treated with arthroscopic elbow surgery include:

Both conditions occur as a result of strain and overuse, and they can occur in athletes as well as people who don't participate in golf, tennis, or any other type of sport. Symptoms of both conditions are also similar and include:
