Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint using a specialized instrument known as an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a flexible fiberoptic tube that contains a small lens or camera and a lighting system to magnify and illuminate structures inside a joint.

Reconstructive surgery is a procedure wherein injured areas or defects are corrected by using flaps of tissue, skin, bone or metalwork, along with underlying blood vessels or muscle to rebuild the damaged tissues. Reconstructive surgery on the shoulder and elbow is performed to improve the structural, functional and cosmetic outcomes of the joints.
