sports medicine


Sports medicine has come a long way in how to treat patients thoroughly and effectively in order to get them back to the field as quickly as possible. Athletic injuries are a wide spread problem. Most of the time these injuries can be treated non-invasively.
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction
  • Meniscectomies (removal of knee cartilage)
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Meniscal repairs
  • Knee ligament reconstruction and revision
  • Arthroscopy of the upper and lower extremities
    • knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle and hip
There are many ways to treat minor injuries caused by the activities we perform on a daily basis. Once our injury has been diagnosed more often then not the treatment will be non-invasive. The doctors at the Bone and Joint Institute have been trained to treat sports injuries with the skill required to get the patient active again. Some of the treatments that may be recommended are rest, ice/heat, anti-inflammatory medication, and therapy. The doctor will decide what combination will best benefit you as the patient and give the quickest recovery.

If however the injury is more severe, the treatment options may include a minimally invasive procedure called an arthroscopy. This procedure allows the doctor to repair the problem on the inside without needing major surgery. This also allows for a speedy recovery and the patient can get back to the sports they enjoy.
