Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused when the transverse carpal ligament, a flexible, slightly elastic cord that lies on top of the carpal tunnel at the wrist, presses upon the median nerve. The resulting symptoms include tingling, numbness, weakness, or pain in the fingers, hand, or lower arm.
To treat this, endoscopic carpal tunnel release is performed where the physician uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera attached (endoscope), which is guided through a small incision in the wrist (single-portal technique) or at the wrist and palm (two-portal technique). The cutting tools used in endoscopic surgery are also very tiny and are inserted through the same small incisions in the wrist or wrist and palm.
To relieve the condition, the transverse carpal ligament is cut and the small incisions closed up with stitches. The whole procedure is performed as an outpatient service. To speak with one of our physicians and to determine whether you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, kindly give us a call at (352) 404-8956 today.
Multi knee Ligament Reconstruction
The knee has a series of ligaments that help it flex and support the various movements that are essential in most sporting activities and even in general movement. In cases of serious sporting injuries or motor vehicle accidents, one or more of these ligaments can be torn and this in turn severely affects the stability and movement of the knee.
In such cases, the patient requires multi knee ligament reconstruction, a surgical procedure that involves using ligament tissue from other parts of the body to repair the affected knee joint and restore the knee’s integrity and stability.
At Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute, we have experience treating multi knee ligament injuries and have the necessary competency and expertise to perform multi knee ligament reconstruction. For more information on multi knee ligament reconstruction, kindly give us a call on (352) 404-8956 today to speak with one of our qualified friendly physicians.
Biceps Tendon Repair
The biceps muscle, located at the front of your upper arm, is responsible for supination (motion of rotating the forearm from palm down to palm up) and stabilizing the shoulder. Injuries to this muscle may occur at two different locations, the elbow (distal biceps tendon rapture) or at the shoulder attachment (proximal biceps tendon rapture).
Both have a noticeable effect on the capabilities of the arm in terms of motion and strength and whereas it is possible to continue use of the arm even with either of these injuries, the capacity for movement and strength in the arm is significantly reduced and you may not be able to do some of the things you were able to do in the past with your arm.
In either case, biceps tendon repair is recommended where the orthopedic surgeon will use either shoulder arthroscopy or elbow arthroscopy (depending on the location of the injury) and repair the tendon through reattachment.
As a sporting person or living an active lifestyle, it is always advised to have any muscle tendon injuries examined even if the symptoms seem to be reducing so call us today on (352) 404-8956 to speak with an orthopedic surgeon.
