Summary

In this lower leg procedure, the provider performs treatment of a fracture of the upper tibia’s intercondylar spine and or tuberosity using an arthroscope. The provider may perform the procedure with or without manipulation. He also uses internal or external fixation devices to fix the fracture. Arthroscopy is also known as keyhole surgery because the provider uses an arthroscope, a tiny camera, to look inside the joint and to treat joint problems.
