Issues That Are Found From Diagnostics of Knee Injuries in Orlando and Beyond…
- ACL Reconstruction: ACL stands for Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction). In this procedure, your torn ligament is removed from the knee and a tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament (which is located in the knee) is performed. This graft will help you recover the same or close to the same usage of your knee before your injury occurred.
- Arthroscopic Chondroplasty: Over time, repeat movement or injury can cause the cartilage in the knee to diminish and causes friction that is painful. A Chondroplasty is a procedure that is conducted to remove damaged tissue so that healthy cartilage can grow and replace the old/harmed tissue.
- Joint Arthroscopy: Arthroscopic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which is performed on a joint. A small incision is made and an arthroscope is inserted and can be used to offer treatment after an examination of what is going on inside is made.
- Partial Meniscectomy: when a tear occurs on the meniscus (knee joint injury), that is where a partial meniscectomy is utilized to help repair the damage.
- Total Knee Replacement: with this major surgical procedure, the knee is completely replaced with an artificial joint.
- Cartilage and meniscus injuries: Torn cartilage and a torn meniscus are synonymous. There are two pieces of cartilage that meet and act as “shock absorbers” between your thighbone and shinbone. When this cartilage is damaged and tears, this causes great discomfort in patients and treatment must be given quickly.
- Dislocation of the kneecap (patella): Whether due to a direct blow or a sudden twist of the leg, when the patella (kneecap) slips out of its normal position, that is where a dislocation occurs.
- Ligament sprains or tears (anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, medial collateral, and lateral collateral ligament tears): your orthopedic can offer exercises and medication to help with the swelling and pain.
- Loose or foreign bodies: The knee is the most common site for loose bodies. Loose bodies can be caused by degenerative joint disease, a bone fragment resulting from fracture or possibly a torn piece of cartilage and results in a free-floating piece of bone, cartilage or a foreign object in a joint.
- Osgood-Schlatter disease: This is a disease that often affects children undergoing growth spurts and results in a painful lump below the knee. Thankfully there is a treatment that can fully reverse this.
- Pain: knee pain is most often the result of either sudden injury, an overuse injury, or by an underlying condition (arthritis for example).
- Tendinitis: If you feel that the tissue connecting the muscle to your bone becomes inflamed, this is most often the result of tendinitis.
