Many patients come to see our expert surgeons because they need care for a sports injury. One of the common procedures that we perform are arthroscopic knee procedures. When applicable to your particular injury, this surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and will quickly resolve your knee pain problems. Arthroscopic surgery can be performed on the knee or other parts of your body depending on the type of orthopedic care that you need. If you are having pain in your knee due to a loose particle of bone, or torn meniscus, this can be easily corrected by arthroscopic surgery. Common symptoms of this type of knee problem includes knee pain, a clicking when you walk, or your knee locks or is generally unstable. Arthroscopic surgery is performed in less than a half hour and is a great method of treatment for not only professional athletes, but for high school seniors as well. If your knee wobbles when you turn, or tends to buckle or collapse, you may have an ACL tear. The ACL is the major ligament at the center of your knee. Our doctor can provide you with Harrison sports medicine
care for your ACL tear by performing a one-hour outpatient procedure. This surgery will ensure that you do not develop arthritis often associated with ACL tears. Our surgeon recommends the Allograft ACL reconstruction for many patients. Patients also come to see our orthopedic surgeons for treatment of ankle injuries, tennis elbow, or treatment with PRP injections. PRP injections use part of the patient’s own blood to treat sports-related tendon problems, as well as problems with plantar fasciitis.
