Surgeries performed through arthroscopic method
Arthroscopy is a method which ensures the examination and treatment of joints through small lacerations.

- Ligament tears: Particularly, frontal cruciate and medial collateral ligaments injuries are observed. For the treatment, the arthroscopic ligament repair is performed.
