If surgery is suggested, you can be sure that Dr. Woodworth uses the latest techniques and state-of-the art technology to insure a full recovery. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that this Henderson sports medicine specialist uses to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside a joint. During your procedure, Dr. Woodworth inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your joint. The camera displays pictures on a television screen and Dr. Woodworth uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments. Because the arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, your surgeon can use very small incisions. This results in less pain for patients, and shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities. Arthroscopy with Dr. Woodworth makes diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from surgery easier and faster than was once thought possible.
