Sports Injury

Sports injury refers not only to the injuries developed during sports but also involves injuries due to repetitive activities. For instance, gardeners may develop tendonitis, and factory workers may develop tennis elbow. The sports injury may be acute or chronic. Acute injuries include dislocations and sprains, while chronic injuries includes stress fractures and shin splints. The treatment depends on the type and severity of the injury. Mild injuries are generally treated through resting, icing, compressing, and elevating. For severe injuries, the doctor may advise surgical interventions.

Our Offerings

  • ACL /PCL Repair and Reconstruction: The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) are important ligaments of the knee that connect the thigh bone and the shinbone. The surgeon performs the ACL/PCL repair and reconstruction in the case of a multi-ligamentous knee injury. The injury often occurs due to the contact force that causes knee dislocation.
  • Medial Collateral and Lateral Ligament Complex Injury Repair: The medial collateral ligament is on the inner side, and the lateral ligament is on the outer side of the knee. Both of these ligaments, along with the ACL and PCL, connect the thigh bone and shinbone. Injuries to these ligaments are managed through physical therapy and surgical interventions.
  • Shoulder Rotator Cuff Repair: The rotator cuff comprises the tendons and muscles that stabilize the shoulder joint and assist the upward movement of the shoulder. Injuries to the rotator cuff usually require surgical interventions that involve shaving off the bone spurs or repairing torn muscles or tendons. The surgical techniques include open surgery, arthroscopy, or a combination of both.
  • Bankart Surgery for Shoulder: The surgeon performs the Bankart surgery to repair the recurrent shoulder joint dislocations. The surgery involves reattaching the worn-out ligaments to the appropriate place at the shoulder joint. The surgery aims to restore normal shoulder functions.
  • Chronic Shoulder Dislocation Repair: There are several techniques to repair chronic shoulder dislocation. The doctor may advise the patients to perform exercises to improve the strength of the rotator cuff muscles. Surgical interventions are also recommended to reattach the ligaments to the bones.
  • Foot and Ankle Ligament Reconstruction and Repair: The foot and ankle have the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) and the calcaneofibular ligament (CFL). The surgeon performs the foot and ankle ligament repair to treat severe sprains and ankle instability. The surgery aims to stabilize the ankles.
  • Elbow Ligaments Repair and Reconstruction: The Ulnar collateral ligament, radial collateral ligament, and annular ligament support the elbow joint. The common injuries to the elbow joint include the golfer's elbow and tennis elbow that occur due to repeated activities. Surgical interventions for elbow ligament injuries include tendon release, tendon repair, and ligament reconstruction.
  • Knee /Shoulder /Ankle Arthroscopic Procedures: Arthroscopy is a procedure that involves diagnosing and treating conditions related to joints, such as the shoulder, knee, elbow, hip, ankle, and wrist. The surgeon uses a camera attached to the narrow tube to evaluate the damaged area of the joint.
  • Cartilage Repairs: There are several techniques to treat cartilage damage. These include cartilage regeneration, repair, and replacement. The most common procedures to restore the articular cartilage are microfracture, abrasion arthroplasty, drilling, osteochondral autograft transplantation, autologous chondrocyte implantation, and osteochondral allograft transplantation.
