When arthroscopic surgery becomes necessary, it’s important to choose an experienced surgeon with a long-standing reputation for integrity. Dr. Daniel Murphy, the Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group, is proud to serve residents of Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding areas by providing orthopaedic care for sports injuries, arthritis, and a variety of other musculoskeletal conditions.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that accesses the interior of a joint through a small incision and an arthroscope, which is a pen-like instrument that contains a tiny video camera and a light. The arthroscope allows the orthopaedic surgeon to see magnified images of the joint space on a video monitor throughout the operation, which precludes the need to entirely open the joint. The minimally invasive nature of outpatient arthroscopic surgery offers many benefits to the patient, including:
- Less trauma to connective tissue
- Shorter recovery time
- Less risk of infection
- Smaller incision
- Reduced scarring
Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group offers arthroscopic knee surgery and shoulder arthroscopy for patients who have sustained sports injuries like meniscus tears, ACL tears, rotator cuff tears, and frozen shoulder, or who have developed chronic conditions like tendonitis. We also offer comprehensive physical therapy services for post-surgical rehabilitation.
