By:Heloise Peixoto

Marc Institute will be offering an Arthroscopy course on October 12th. The course will be conducted by Dr. John Uribe, M.D. and Dr. Keith Hechtman, MD. Registration is now open for: Introduction to Arthroscopy. Our hands on teaching methods are designed to help healthcare professionals and orthopedists acquire the skills they need to perform knee and shoulder arthroscopy.

What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a type of joint surgery that’s designed to be minimally invasive and can be used both for examination and treatment of joint damage. It gets its name from the tool that makes it possible: the arthroscope.

An arthroscope is a type of endoscope that can be inserted into a joint to examine an injury in difficult to access areas or operate on it directly.

What is it Used For?

Arthoscopes are used for a variety of join injuries that would otherwise require much more invasive surgeries. They’re often used to investigate or treat:

  • Rotator Cuff tears
  • Meniscal tears
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Foreign bodies in joints
  • Subacromial Impingement
  • Torn Ligaments

    Unlike traditional open surgeries, arthroscopy is relatively easy on patients and is often done as an outpatient procedure. Patients can often begin using the joint again within just a few days, and typically make a full recovery within a few weeks. This helps to keep costs down for patients while also greatly improving their experience.

    Why Take Our Course?

    Our goal is to help beginning orthopedists and other healthcare professionals develop the skills they need to perform arthroscopy for the knee and shoulder. Marc Institute is the premier option for medical professionals looking for a real, hands-on learning experience that provides applicable skills and actionable value.

    Our course is comprised of 85% hands-on practice on fresh frozen cadavers, and 15% lecture. We believe strongly in learning by doing, and our courses are designed to reflect that, and to maximize your real experience in the classroom.
