Orthopedic arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used by orthopedic surgeons to diagnose and treat joint problems. It involves inserting a small camera, known as an arthroscope, into the joint through a small incision. This allows the surgeon to visualize the interior of the joint on a screen in real-time, guiding them to diagnose and treat various joint conditions. The most common joints addressed through arthroscopy include the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, elbow, and wrist.

Specialty Content in Orthopedic Arthroscopy includes:

  • Knee Arthroscopy: One of the most common procedures in orthopedic arthroscopy, knee arthroscopy helps diagnose and treat various knee conditions like torn meniscus, ligament injuries (such as ACL or PCL tears), cartilage damage, and knee joint infections.
  • Shoulder Arthroscopy: Surgeons use this to address shoulder problems like rotator cuff tears, labral tears, recurrent dislocations, impingement syndrome, and other conditions causing shoulder pain and limited mobility.
  • Hip Arthroscopy: This procedure focuses on addressing hip joint issues such as labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), hip dysplasia, and synovitis.
  • Ankle Arthroscopy: It's employed to diagnose and treat various ankle problems such as cartilage injuries, ankle impingement, loose bodies, and synovitis.
  • Elbow Arthroscopy: Elbow arthroscopy can be used to treat conditions like tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis), osteoarthritis, loose bodies, and elbow stiffness.
  • Wrist Arthroscopy: Wrist arthroscopy aids in diagnosing and treating wrist problems like carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist ligament injuries, TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) tears, and arthritis.
  • Diagnostic Capabilities: Arthroscopy allows for accurate diagnosis through visualization of the joint interior. Surgeons can inspect cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and joint surfaces, aiding in the identification of various pathologies.
  • Therapeutic Procedures: Besides diagnosis, arthroscopy enables surgeons to perform therapeutic procedures such as ligament reconstructions, meniscus repairs, cartilage restoration, synovectomy (removal of inflamed synovial tissue), and removal of loose bodies or bone spurs.
  • Recovery and Rehabilitation: Post-arthroscopic rehabilitation is essential for restoring joint function and strength. Physical therapy programs are designed to help patients regain mobility, strength, and functionality of the joint.

Sports Medicine

Orthopedic sports medicine is a specialized field within orthopedics that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries related to sports and physical activity. Here are some key aspects and specialties within the field of orthopedic sports medicine:

  • Injury Prevention: Orthopedic sports medicine specialists often work on preventing injuries by educating athletes, coaches, and trainers about proper techniques, conditioning, warm-ups, and equipment use to minimize the risk of injuries during sports activities.
  • Diagnosis and Evaluation: Orthopedic specialists use various diagnostic tools such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and physical examinations to diagnose sports-related injuries accurately. They assess the severity of injuries and their impact on an athlete's ability to perform.
  • Acute Injury Management: Immediate care for acute sports injuries, such as fractures, ligament tears (like ACL or PCL), dislocations, muscle strains, and sprains, is crucial. Orthopedic sports medicine professionals employ techniques like splinting, casting, or surgery when necessary to stabilize and repair these injuries.
  • Surgical Interventions: Some injuries, particularly severe ligament tears or fractures, may require surgical intervention. Orthopedic surgeons specializing in sports medicine perform procedures like arthroscopy, ligament reconstruction, joint stabilization, and cartilage restoration to help athletes regain function and return to sports safely.
  • Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy: After surgery or non-surgical treatments, rehabilitation is essential for restoring strength, flexibility, and function. Physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to aid in recovery and prevent re-injury, focusing on restoring optimal performance for athletes.
  • Overuse Injury Management: Orthopedic sports medicine also deals with chronic or overuse injuries such as stress fractures, tendonitis, and repetitive strain injuries. Managing these conditions often involves activity modification, physical therapy, and sometimes surgical intervention.
