Arthroscopy treatment uses minimally invasive orthopedic surgery to treat joint injuries or illnesses. Joints are the most used parts of the body and therefore the most susceptible to wear and tear as well as injury because they absorb most of the strain when it comes to activities and sports.
At Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute, we specialize in a number of arthroscopic orthopedic surgery disciplines that include shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip and ankle. Using the most advanced and least invasive arthroscopic surgery tools and techniques, we treat our patients to ensure the least impact to their active lifestyles and fastest recovery times possible.

Shoulder joint injuries are common owing to the nature of the joint. Similar to the hip joint, the shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint but unlike the hip, it is too shallow to work well without additional support. A cuff of cartilage called the labrum therefore supports the joint and ensures it has the robustness to allow various movements and pressures. This nevertheless does make the joint susceptible to injury, this cuff sometimes tears when a tremendous amount of force is applied to the joint resulting in a labral tear.
The surgical team at Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute have years of experience in labral tear repair and using the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, we put you back into shape with as little impact to your lifestyle and shoulder area as possible. For more information on our labral tear repair services, kindly call us on (352) 404-8956 today!
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Treatments
Every day, the field of Orthopedics sees new advances that challenge us to offer patients the most leading-edge care. The most advanced method of treating any Orthopedic surgical pathology is performing it through Minimally invasive surgery.
By using minimally invasive treatments, the physicians at Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute offers our patients many benefits over traditional surgeries.
Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Surgery Benefits:
Significantly less post-operative pain
Less damage to tissue
Reduced recovery time
Faster return to normal activities
Very small "keyhole" incisions or greatly reduced incision size
Some procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, requiring no overnight stay in the hospital
Minimally Invasive Treatments cause less post-operative pain and discomfort. Studies have shown that patients undergoing Minimally Invasive procedures report less pain and require smaller doses of pain relievers than patients undergoing traditional surgeries.
Quicker Outpatient Stays
Patients who undergo Minimally Invasive Treatments are usually able to go home sooner. And, in many cases, the patient is able to return to normal activities and work more quickly.
Minimally Invasive Treatments require smaller incisions - which means smaller, less noticeable scars. The scars that do form as a result of Minimally Invasive Treatments typically have a less jagged edge - giving them a more appealing look.
Less Injury to Tissue
Most traditional surgeries require a long incision. This incision usually has to be made through muscle. Muscle needs a significant time to heal after surgery. Because there are no long incisions in Minimally Invasive Surgery, surgeons often do not have to cut through muscles to complete the procedure - leading to less tissue damage and quicker recovery.
Higher Accuracy Rate
A higher accuracy rate for most procedures. The physicians' at Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute use video-assisted equipment when performing surgery. This provides the surgeon with better visualization and magnification of internal organs and structure. Basically, what the camera sees is broadcast to a large screen in the operating theater, guiding the surgeon accurately through the procedure. For patients, this translates into a more accurate and definitive procedure.
