Nano Arthroscopy

The state-of-the-art NanoScope™ imaging system is the first medical-grade, 3-in-1, chip-on-tip, single-use camera system. The NanoScope system combines the latest technology in 1 mm imaging sensors, LED lighting, image management, and OR integration with an intuitive tablet control. The NanoScope system provides a new option to MRI imaging, second-look arthroscopy, and image-guided injections that can be placed precisely under direct arthroscopic image control.

The minimally invasive patient experience and unlimited atraumatic access to joint spaces make the NanoScope system and Nano arthroscopy instrumentation the clear choice for instant diagnostic imaging and less invasive arthroscopic procedures

Dr Kennedy was the first to use this as an in office procedure, offering needle arthroscopy.

Since 2019, Dr. Kennedy has performed hundreds of these procedures and is consider a world pioneer and expert on Nano Arthroscopy.

NYU Langone Conducts First Foot & Ankle Arthroscopic Treatment with New Visualization Technology

John G. Kennedy, MD, chief of the Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery and professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at NYU Langone, performed an ankle debridement—a technique to “clean out” bone spurs and scar tissue from the ankle of an athlete who had previous cartilage restoration surgery—as the first procedure using the new system.
