Ankle Arthroscopy in Costa Rica

Ankle arthroscopy is also known as key hole surgery or minimally invasive ankle surgery. Ankle arthroscopy involves using very small incisions to gain access into the ankle joint. Each incision is less than 1cm and usually two incisions are required.

The ankle joint is relatively small and to allow good surgical access to the joint, its dimensions need temporarily to be increased. This is done using a combination of distraction across the joint together with having a stream of pressurized fluid circulating through the joint which distends it.
