Knee Arthroscopy for Those in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland & Surrounding Cities
If alternative treatment plans have been unable to alleviate your knee pain and discomfort, a knee arthroscopy may be recommended to further diagnose and repair the issue. Those with knee arthritis, ACL injuries, meniscal damage and more can benefit from this minimally invasive surgery, and it is often used to restore mobility and range of motion to the knee.
Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics routinely performs arthroscopic procedures to correct a broad range of joint related injuries and conditions. During your knee arthroscopy, our expert surgical team will make a small incision of less than ½ inch and insert an arthroscope, which is a thin medical instrument that contains a light and a camera. Your surgeon will use this arthroscope to diagnose and repair your knee without having to open the entire knee or create an unsightly scar.
At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we do our best to help you avoid surgical intervention unless it is absolutely necessary. We offer a wide range of alternative treatment options that may be suitable to treat your knee arthritis or other knee conditions. These options can often reduce your knee inflammation and get you moving again, but if we feel you would be best suited with knee surgery, we are pleased to offer arthroscopic knee surgery as a superior alternative to traditional open knee surgery.
Benefits to having a knee arthroscopy include:
- Shorter Recovery Time
- Less Scarring
- Increased Range of Motion
- Decreased Pain
A knee arthroscopy is typically an outpatient procedure. Recovery time will vary, but patients are generally able to return to work within a week or two. While physical therapy is often required to develop strength and increase range of motion, you can anticipate a full recovery in a few short months. In some cases, we may recommend physician-directed stem cell therapy as a means to augment the healing process.
Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics is gladly accepting patients from Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland and the surrounding regions, so contact us today to schedule an appointment and see if a knee arthroscopy is the best solution for you. We have helped hundreds of patients throughout the Tampa Bay region find relief from knee arthritis, dislocated patellae, torn menisci, fractures and more with our alternative treatment options and arthroscopic surgical procedures.
