Advantages of Arthroscopic

Arthroscopic surgery involves the use of highly specialized instruments to perform surgery through very small incisions (one-half inch).

It is also known as "minimally invasive surgery" because it doesn't require large incisions.

The advantages of arthroscopic surgery are clear: smaller incisions, less scar tissue, less pain after surgery, and faster recovery.

The Procedure

Dr. Loniewski and Dr. Mihalich perform arthroscopic surgical procedures of the knee including meniscal surgery and loose body removal. Dr. Mihalich also does ankle arthroscopies for joint debridement.

Dr. Farjo has performed thousands of advanced arthroscopic surgical procedures. In addition to performing these procedures, he also teaches other surgeons how to use these techniques. He performs arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee, ankle, elbow, and hip.

Sample procedures he performs arthroscopically include:


  • Knee ACL & PCL reconstruction
  • Knee meniscus repair
  • Knee osteochondral grafting (for cartilage lesions)
  • Shoulder rotator cuff repair
  • Shoulder bankart reconstruction (for dislocating shoulder)
  • Shoulder subacromial decompression (for shoulder tendonitis, bursitis)
  • Shoulder labral (SLAP) repairs
  • All other advanced arthroscopic shoulder surgeries (e.g., for biceps tendon problems, ganglion cysts, scapulothoracic bursitis, coracoid impingement).
