Meniscus Tear in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland & Surrounding Cities

meniscus tearIf you have recently suffered a meniscus tear, turn to none other than the experienced orthopedic surgeons and physicians from Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics. At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we have developed an innovative treatment approach that helps eliminate pain, increase mobility and speed up healing time for patients who have suffered from a meniscal tear, an ACL injury or any other knee or joint related injury or condition.

An extremely common injury, a meniscus tear can happen to anyone. The meniscus, a wedge or C shaped portion of cartilage, acts as a cushion between your thigh and shin bones. Although meniscal injuries are often caused by sports and other extraneous activities, simply applying too much pressure or rotating the knee slightly too far can cause a tear.

Symptoms of a meniscal tear include:

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Locking knee
  • Decreased range of motion

At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we can help you diagnose your injury and determine if you do, in fact, have a meniscus tear or, instead, have an ACL injury or other common knee condition. Regardless of your condition, our expert orthopedic specialists will tailor a treatment plan for you. As opposed to many other orthopedic practices, we do not operate unless it is absolutely vital to do so, and even in cases where surgery is necessary, we can implement our innovative three-tiered approach to healing. Rather than provide our patients with open knee surgeries that can leave them with large, unsightly scars, we opt instead for a more modern surgical arthroscopic procedure. Further, we offer our patients both physician-directed stem cell therapy and denervation services to alleviate their pain and speed up recovery time.

Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics has served hundreds of patients throughout the greater Tampa Bay area and gladly welcomes patients from Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland and the surrounding cities, so contact us today to schedule an appointment. Whether you’ve suffered a meniscus tear or an ACL injury, have bone on bone contact or are suffering from any other painful joint condition, we can help!
