Patients considering meniscus surgery in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or any of the surrounding areas can turn to Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group. As the oldest orthopaedic practice in Tampa, we’ve built our long-standing reputation on a commitment to exceptional patient care and the most advanced treatment approaches available, both surgical and non-surgical.
Meniscus surgery, or meniscus repair, may be necessary if the disc of knee cartilage located between the thigh bone and shin bone tears. Some patients, however, may find that they can manage the symptoms of a partial meniscus tear – pain, inflammation, weakness, instability, or lockage in the knee – and possibly heal the injury with the conservative, non-surgical treatments offered at our clinic, including:
- Physical therapy
- Analgesics or NSAIDs
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Cortisone injections
- PRP injections
- Ultrasound therapy
In the event that the Board-certified doctors at our clinic, Drs. Murphy and Ramirez, evaluate your condition and determine that meniscus surgery offers the best chance for you to regain mobility and stability in your knee, we can tell you more about this arthroscopic knee surgery, how it is performed, and what to expect during rehabilitation. In addition to meniscus surgery, our sports injury clinic offers other types of knee surgery such as knee replacement, ACL surgery, and knee scope.
Athletes, individuals with arthritis, or anyone experiencing musculoskeletal pain can contact our orthopaedic and sports injury clinic today to learn more about the many services we offer. We are located at 602 South Howard Avenue, and proudly serve patients in South Tampa, New Tampa, Brandon, Oldsmar, Lutz, Plant City, and all of the surrounding areas.
