VisionScope to Evaluate and Diagnose Joint Pain

Orthopedists, A. Neil Clerk, MD and Roger Nowak, MD, are now using VisionScope arthroscopic imaging technology to evaluate and diagnose pain in the joints, including knees and shoulders. VisionScope is a camera at the end of a thin endoscope inserted under the skin that provides high-definition imaging of the joint. This enables the surgeons to make the most appropriate treatment plan based on the precise cause of the pain.

“This technology can help us decide whether surgery is necessary right in the office with just local anesthesia,” said Roger Nowak, MD. “It is also a solution for patients who are unable to have an MRI, such as people with pacemakers.”
