If you’re considering a knee arthroscopy in Tampa due to an ACL tear, a meniscus tear, or another type of knee injury, turn to the professionals at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group. Our Board-certified doctors can evaluate your condition and determine if surgery is necessary, or if you may be able to rehabilitate your knee with non-surgical treatments.
A knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Through small incisions, the surgeon inserts an arthroscope into the knee. This allows the doctor to see the interior structures of the knee on a video monitor, which precludes the need for a large incision or trauma to surrounding tissues. The surgeon will then remove or repair:
- A torn meniscus
- Torn articular cartilage
- A torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
- Loose pieces of bone or cartilage
At Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group, our team treats a wide range of sports injuries and orthopaedic conditions. In addition to arthroscopy of the knee and conservative treatments like hyaluronic acid injections, physical therapy, and platelet rich plasma therapy, we also offer shoulder surgery, joint replacement, ACL reconstruction, and a variety of other treatment approaches.
