Our Sports Medicine branch of Orthopedic department focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries related to sports and exercise. Our doctors work closely with athletes, coaches, and trainers to help manage their health and well-being.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows the orthopedic surgeon in sports medicine to examine, diagnose, and treat various knee and sports-related injuries. During arthroscopy, a small camera, called an arthroscope, is inserted into the joint through a small incision. The arthroscope displays images of the inside of the joint on a screen, allowing the surgeon to see and diagnose the injury.
We provide arthroscopy in sports medicine to diagnose and treat all types of injuries that occur in athletes. Some common sports injuries that we treat with arthroscopy include meniscal tears, ACL tears, and cartilage damage, trimming or repairing damaged tissue and removing loose fragments of bone or cartilage. For example, a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can be reconstructed using tissue from the patient or a donor.
We ensure to reduce the damage to the surrounding tissues, resulting in less pain and faster recovery.
Our ultimate goal through arthroscopy in sports injuries is to restore the function of the joint and help the patient return to their normal activities as quickly as possible.
