Arthroscopy, or arthroscopic surgery, can be used to diagnose and/ or treat ankle and foot problems using a less invasive procedure. During arthroscopy, the doctor makes tiny incisions at the site and inserts an arthroscope and tiny surgical instruments through the incisions. The arthroscope is a fiber-optic camera that allows the doctor to view and diagnose internal damage. The procedure makes it possible to view and assess the problem as well as perform surgical corrections, such as removing cartilage and repairing damaged joints and tissue. Arthroscopic surgery reduces trauma to surrounding tissue and cuts down on swelling, healing time, and the risk of infection. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.

I was very impressed with the care my daughter received from Dr. Jameson. I was able to schedule a next-day appointment for a new patient. The doctor was efficient and knowledgeable, and her positivity was very comforting for my daughter (who was anxious and in pain). The office staff and x-ray tech were also great. […]

This office knows how to treat patients!! I have been so impressed from the very first phone call. Everyone has been so incredibly polite and pleasant. A rarity in today’s world. – CB
I have never experienced such a professional office. From phone call to office visit the entire staff works as a team and treats everyone like a friend. You can tell the entire staff enjoys each other and loves their job. Thanks for the exceptional experience……I’ve never been treated like family at a doctors office before.
