Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
The sport of soccer is known for players injuring their ACL. Players like Francesco Toti (Roma/Italy striker), Theo Walcott (Arsenal/England winger) and Kurt Zouma (Chelsea/France defender) have all suffered from an ACL tear. Playing soccer demands a lot of stopping, starting, quick movements and tackling maneuvers. All of these movements can lead your leg and knee to end up in a situation that they are not made to be in.
With the arrival of the Atlanta United FC team, we will most likely see a rise in the interest in soccer in our area. Players like Josef Martinez are mesmerizing youth and adults alike with his soccer skills. Soccer is an amazing game that is played worldwide, and has been for centuries. It’s been here a long time, and is continuing to grow in momentum and popularity. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we welcome Atlanta United FC team to our great city of Atlanta.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we reconstruct your torn ligament of the knee using a tissue graft. We usually use a graft that is harvested from your patellar tendon. You will be able to regain your normal range of motion in your knee after our careful surgeons perform your surgery.
