We offer Needleview(TM) Arthroscopy!

With NeedleView(TM) technology, the arthroscope is the size of a 19 gauge needle, bringing a whole new meaning to the term, “minimally invasive surgery”!! Exploratory arthroscopy of the stifles can be performed in the standing horse to diagnose meniscus tears, cartilage injury and osteochondrosis.

The need for further treatments and surgeries can be assessed rapidly, safely and without anesthesia in about one hour! The NeedleView(TM) arthroscope is also used for exploration of the navicular bursa and coffin joint as well as the fetlock joint in standing horses.
