Arthroscopy, which is also used in human medicine, is a minimally invasive procedure that allows a veterinarian to examine the inside of a joint, potentially make a diagnosis and, in some cases, repair the problem. Unlike traditional open-joint surgeries that require a large incision, arthroscopy can be accomplished through a few tiny incisions.
