John T. Gill, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon


The arthroscope is a miniature telescope, about the length and diameter of a standard pencil. Attached to the end is a small high definition camera, about the size of a golf ball. The tip of the arthroscope is passed into the joint through a tiny incision called a portal. Through an additional portal, the surgeon can pass whatever instrument he is working with at the time. While the surgeon operates, he controls the camera with one hand, the operative instrument with the other and watches a high definition monitor overhead to see what he is doing. The photo below shows Dr. Gill operating on a knee, the camera is in his left hand, the operative instrument in his right hand and what he is looking at is also shown on the monitor above his head.
