Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that orthopaedic surgeons use to diagnose and treat problems in the ankle joint. It uses a thin fiber-optic camera called an arthroscope, which can magnify and transmit images of the ankle, in real time, to a video screen. By making very small incisions, the orthopaedist can insert the arthroscope into the ankle and view or treat the area.
