Physicians who specialize in Sports Medicine focus on the treatment of injuries that tend to occur in athletes, whether recreational, collegiate or professional. However, these injuries can happen in every day life. Many of these injuries are to the soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system, including the muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage of the joints. While most of the time, surgery isn’t necessary, there are many times where surgical intervention is needed. One of the main surgical tools used is Arthroscopy. It allows for a “minimally invasive” approach to treating these injuries with either repair or reconstruction.
