Sports Medicine – It is not just for athletes! Orthopedic Sports Medicine surgeons are experts in treating fractures and soft tissue, ligament and tendon injuries, in the shoulder, hip and knee. While high-level, competitive athletes often sustain traumatic injuries in these areas of the body, anyone can be affected from pain or injury from a sprain or strain- whether it’s from tripping and twisting a knee, falling on an outstretched arm or even genetic malformations such as hip dysplasia. Sports Medicine doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating the pain that can occur in many areas of the musculoskeletal system. They always look first to non-surgical options to repair the injury, however if surgery is needed, they are experts in arthroscopic surgery, which is a minimally invasive approach to treating injuries and offers patients a quicker and less painful recovery.
