Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers baseball players and other dedicated athletes with Tommy John Surgery as an option to repair torn ligaments in the elbow. This injury, a torn or damaged ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), commonly affects pitchers in baseball. This procedure was named after Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Tommy John. Over half of Tommy John’s career wins came after his surgery.
You can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for successful knee arthroscopy in Atlanta. We staff double board certified surgeons who are pioneers in sports medicine and knee injuries. To this end, we carry specialized expertise in arthroscopic techniques to repair the joints. If conservative, non-surgical methods have failed to relieve your knee pain symptoms, consider knee arthroscopy as a favorable and highly effective alternative.
Knee arthroscopy is a procedure that involves small incisions to allow a tiny camera, or arthroscope, to be inserted into your knee. This “key-hole” surgery offers both diagnostic and treatment capabilities. We utilize advanced arthroscopic techniques to carry out a wide variety of treatments, including removing torn cartilage or reconstructing ligaments of the knee. Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive solution that results in less scarring, less pain and faster recovery time than traditional open surgery.
Arthroscopic Treatment For Knee Injuries
Arthroscopy is used for the successful diagnosis and treatment for the following knee conditions:
- Torn floating cartilage (meniscus)
- Torn surface (articular) cartilage
- Removal of loose bodies (cartilage or bone) and cysts
- ACL Reconstruction
- Patello-femoral (knee-cap) disorders
