Great advances have been made in arthroscopic tools and techniques in recent years, which is good news for patients requiring surgery for the arm, hand, wrist, shoulder or elbow joints. Arthroscopic surgery has been an invaluable tool for the types of injuries that occur in this part of the body – including ligament reconstruction, tendon repair, cartilage injuries and tears, rotator cuff tears in the shoulder, shaving away bony spurs to treat pain and the removal of bone chips.

At Mount Sinai, our skilled surgeons offer the most promising surgical approaches for these problems, including minimally invasive surgeries to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the most common surgeries in the country.
