Arthroscopic Surgery for Sports Injuries in Freehold and Monroe Township, NJ
Today’s athletes are pushing the limits of human achievement, and with this progress comes the need for increasingly advanced ways to treat sports injuries. At Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, we understand this, which is why we offer arthroscopic surgery for sports injuries at our state-of-the-art facilities in Freehold and Monroe Township, New Jersey.
How Does Arthroscopic Surgery Work?
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive and highly effective technique for treating joint problems. The surgeon begins by making a few small incisions in the affected area and uses these “keyhole” openings to insert a small camera (arthroscope) and other surgical instruments. The surgeon can then see and investigate the inside of the joint to treat or clean it out with the inserted instruments. As compared to open surgery, there are many benefits involved with using arthroscopic surgery for sports injuries, including:
- Smaller incisions
- Minimal damage to surrounding areas of the joint
- Faster recovery
- Less post-operative pain
- Less scarring
Furthermore, arthroscopic surgery can be used to treat a number of sports injuries, particularly in the knee and shoulder. These injuries include ACL tears, PCL tears, knee dislocations, rotator cuff tears, shoulder impingement syndrome, and more.
