Treating a Common Injury in a Minimally Invasive Way: Arthroscopy for Ankle Sprains and Ankle Instability

In fact, such injuries are one of the leading issues that Dr. Carreira sees in his clinical practice. In his presentation at the AANA Annual Conference, Dr. Carreira walked the audience – other leading arthroscopic surgeons from across the U.S.A. – through his technique for minimally invasive arthroscopic ankle stabilization surgery. He also explained in detail the numerous reasons for performing this all-arthroscopic approach. Moreover, Dr. Carreira highlighted the benefits of this approach, especially in comparison to open surgery.
