Needle Arthroscopy


Cutting-Edge Diagnosing Procedure

Pain & Spine Specialists use many cutting-edge tools to diagnose your conditions. We have the option to use needle arthroscopy instead of an expensive and inconvenient magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine.

Needle arthroscopy uses a needle camera inserted into your problem area to help us diagnose your condition. It is a quick and nearly painless procedure that takes about 15 minutes. We will do a thorough medical evaluation to discover what is causing your discomfort and mobility issues.

Needle Arthroscopy Q&A

We will get details about your condition, discuss your needs and expectations, and complete a medical examination. Our pain management and regenerative medicine can help you feel better and heal after that.

  • Does it hurt?

    Local anesthesia is used, and there is generally little discomfort. You may experience a sensation of pressure. After the procedure, we will place a bandage over the small incision.

  • What pain medications will I need?

    If you have pain, we will address the root cause of your discomfort versus treating it with painkillers and temporary measures that just mask your symptoms. Medications may be prescribed when needed, but our goal is to restore you to complete wellness without dependence on drugs.
