We Do

General Orthopaedics

The physicians at SportsMed treat virtually every type of musculoskeletal problem known today. Conditions affecting bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons can be medically or surgically treated, with many of the painful and disabling effects being corrected or prevented. In the past decade, many advancements in orthopaedic practice and surgical procedures have minimized the trauma to patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery. Many cases can now be handled using ambulatory surgical procedures rather than inpatient surgery, especially those involving the hand or foot.

Treatment of orthopaedic injuries that previously involved extensive surgery with large incisions, a hospital stay, and a prolonged recovery period, can now be performed using arthroscopic surgery. With small incision sites and direct access to most areas of the joint, the arthroscopic surgeons at SportsMed can diagnose and surgically correct a vast array of joint problems such as arthritis and ligament tears. Arthroscopic surgery is typically used for the knee, shoulder, wrist, and elbow.
