Surgery is not always necessary, as changes to lifestyle, reductions in the body’s workload, physical therapy and medication can all make a positive change. However, if activities that require use of the injured body part are unavoidable, such as for athletes or for people who exercise regularly, surgery may be considered as the most appropriate means of enabling a speedy return to action.
Currently, arthroscopy is the preferred method for surgery, as it leaves minimal scarring, causes almost no pain and provides doctors with a clearer internal view of the knee joint than would be possible with invasive surgery, thus increasing the efficiency of the treatment. Arthroscopy can be utilized to treat a number of conditions related to the joints, such as joint surface (chondral) damage, tendon damage, ligament damage, joint membrane damage or peripheral nerve damage. These injuries can be caused by numerous factors, such as sports-related and non-sports-related accidents, osteoarthritis found in tendon, ligament and muscle, as well as bone fractures related to overuse through sport, a condition that can occur in knees, elbows, shoulders, ankles, wrists or hips.
|Our team consists of specialists in the field of rehabilitative medicine, as well as highly trained physical therapists with a wealth of experience in rehabilitating patients recovering from sports-related injuries. Every member of this selected team is dedicated to offer continual care and advice to patients who are going through rehabilitation for either surgical or non-surgical procedures, to ensure their bodies recover to their fullest potential.
