Synovectomy

A synovectomy is a surgical procedure for the treatment of synovitis in which part of the synovium of a joint is removed. It may be performed either as an open surgery or with the aid of an arthroscope. HSS performs many synovectomies arthroscopically, but the chosen surgical technique often depends on which joint is affected.

Synovectomies can be performed on knee, hip, elbow, wrist or finger joints, and they can significantly improve function and relieve pain. Read more on synovectomy in the article below.
