Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery for Those in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland & Surrounding Cities
As a result of ever-evolving technology, the orthopedic industry can provide patients with cutting edge treatments and techniques like never before. For those suffering from a torn ACL, meniscitis or a host of other knee problems, arthroscopic knee surgery may provide the best solution.
At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we utilize the most advanced equipment and innovative techniques to treat patients for a broad range of joint related issues, and our well-educated, experienced team of surgeons can provide arthroscopic knee surgery for patients of all ages. A minimally invasive procedure that is used to diagnose and treat a broad range of conditions of the knee joint, arthroscopic surgery is performed by making a small incision and inserting an arthroscope, so your surgeon can thoroughly examine your internal tissues and treat any damage. While less invasive than traditional knee surgery, arthroscopic knee surgery will require that you wear a knee brace for 1-4 weeks postop and undergo physical therapy treatments.
For those seeking an alternative to knee surgery, Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics also provides a vast assortment of other treatment options, which include the following and more:
- Corticosteroid Injections
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
- Platelet Rich Plasma
- Physician-Directed Stem Cell Therapy
Corticosteroid injections work by injecting cortisone and a numbing agent directly into the joint, and they provide fast relief, reducing both pain and inflammation. Hyaluronic acid injections are an alternative treatment option for those who are suffering from decreased mobility. By injecting the knee joint with a thick fluid that mimics our own natural joint fluid, hyaluronic acid injections provide the right amount of lubrication to get your joint moving again. In addition, platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be injected directly into the knee to promote natural healing and reduce inflammation. By processing the patient’s own blood to create higher concentrations of platelets and growth factors, PRP can significantly improve both pain and stiffness. Finally, physician-directed stem cell therapy is a great alternative for those who wish to help augment the healing process. With the introduction of stem cells, the body’s own natural healing process is stimulated, allowing for the repair, regeneration or replacement of damaged cells and tissues. When you visit with our surgical team, we will be able to determine if an alternative to knee surgery is right for you and your condition.
