      Frequently Asked Questions

      The problems of joints are diagnosed and treated by a procedure known as arthroscopy. An incision about the size of a buttonhole is made through which the surgeon inserts a narrow tube. A fibre-optic video camera is attached to that tube. A high-definition video monitor will receive images of the insides of your joints from the camera.

      Arthroscopy is an excellent alternative for seeing the inside of your joints without making big incisions. Surgeons might also be able to repair some kinds of joint damage during the procedure. Additional small incisions will be made, and a pen-like thin surgical tool is inserted through them to repair the damage of certain types.

      Joint problems related to the following parts are most commonly treated using arthroscopy-

      • Ankle
      • Elbow
      • Hip
      • Knee
      • Shoulder
      • Wrist

      If you are searching for a doctor who does arthroscopy in India, you can consider visiting Dr Aditya Sai's Knee and Shoulder Clinic. He is a known and experienced surgeon in this field.

      Most of the patients who undergo arthroscopy can go home the same day. The procedure is performed either in the hospital or the outpatient operating room. The pain in the joint will determine which level of anaesthesia needs to be administered to you. You can be put to sleep using general anaesthesia which your surgeon might give through your spine, or they might numb the specific area of surgery.

      As explained above, through an incision of buttonhole size, a unique thin instrument will be inserted by your doctor. The tool is called an arthroscope, and it has a camera and a light as well. The transmitted image is visible on the video screen that helps the surgeons see the inside of your joints. Most surgeons use a sterile fluid to fill the joint and widen it for better visibility.

      The arthroscopic surgery cost in India is dependent on how complicated the surgery is and what type of anaesthesia is used. Your surgeon's experience also decides the total price you'll have to pay.

      Your general physician might ask you to look for an arthroscopic surgeon after getting the gist of the problem. The below tips will help you get the best arthroscopic surgeon are as follows-

      • Get Referrals
        Your primary point of contacts, including your family, friends, relatives, healthcare professionals or even your general physician, can be the people whom you ask for a recommendation. You can go through the list of the doctors suggested by them and shortlist some. Plan a consulting appointment with the few you have shortlisted to make a final decision.
      • Research the credentials of the arthroscopic surgeon
        Certification will tell you that the doctor possesses the required training, skills, and experience to provide you with the care you need. It would be best if you chose a doctor with proper board certification. It is also essential that you check the surgeon's history for any claims of malpractice or negligence. All the information regarding the medical school, qualification, history etc., of the doctor should be available on his or the hospital's website.
      • Check the surgeon's experience.
        If you have a complex or sensitive arthroscopic problem, you must choose a surgeon with ample experience. It is seen that the more knowledge of the surgeon, the better outcomes. Enquire if the surgeon has performed the surgery of any other patients having the same condition as yours. Discuss the results, complications faced, and complications you might have with the care team or the doctor.
      • Research the hospital quality
        The hospital where your surgeon practices are going to be your hospital. So you need to check the quality as well as the convenience of transportation. After the arthroscopic surgery, you are likely to be called for follow-ups and rehabilitation, so check if the location is easily accessible to you. The higher-rated hospitals often have better outcomes and most minor complications in the patients. So the hospital quality is an essential factor to consider.
      • Evaluate the communication style
        It is very vital that you feel comfortable around the person who is going to operate on you. It would be best if you weren't cautious while asking them any questions or doubts you have, and in turn, they should answer them. When you first visit the surgeon, ask them some questions and check their style of responding. Are they interested in answering your doubts? Do they rush the process? Are they ignorant or interested in addressing your queries? All of these will help you choose a doctor who respects your opinion equally.
      • Patient Reviews
        Reading the reviews of people previously treated by your doctor can give you a great insight into what you can expect. It will tell you how the doctor is, their experience, work style and even the overall environment of the hospital.

      All the points mentioned above will help you decide which doctor is best for performing your arthroscopic surgery in India.

      Pain is expected in the joint that is operated on post-surgery. Your doctors may prescribe some pain medication as well as a medicine to prevent blood clots. You can need crutches, a sling or a splint for recovery, depending on which joint is operated.

      Open surgery generally causes more joint pain and stiffness, and recovery time is more than arthroscopy. You will have minor wounds from where the surgeon inserted the tools during the procedure. The following day surgical bandages can be removed, and instead, you can use small strips to cover the wounds. If non-dissolvable stitches are used, the doctor will remove them after a week or two.

      You might need to use a plastic bag to cover the site of operation and wounds while showering to keep them as dry as possible. Your doctor will tell you what activities need to be avoided. Generally, patients go back to their routine after a few days of the surgery.

      Rehabilitation and exercises can speed up your recovery, but full joint recovery can take up to several months to get back to normal. Your doctor will help you decide what exercises are safe to do.

      Though the arthroscopy cost in India might be highly variable, when you find an experienced and able surgeon like Dr Aditya Sai, the price can indeed be a negligible factor. The quality of treatment and later outcomes will be the most critical things in this case rather than the cost.
