Hephzibah Johnson | Jyothi Warrier 
Abstract: With increase in the advancements in the world of surgery?s, minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques are considered as a boon. In the 20th century, Arthroscopy is one of the greatest advancements witnessed in Orthopedic Surgery. Arthroscopes are used to perform an Arthroscopic Surgery. These powered instruments now have a wide range of blades and burr?s options available for the surgeon to choose from. The proper detailed usage of the various types of blades and burr?s have been discussed. A complete Arthroscopy system consists of various components. Each component plays an equally important role to develop a seamlessly operable Arthroscopic System. These components and their roles are described and discussed in detail. The hardware and software parts of the prototype system are explained in detail.
