Sports Medicine Centre

The department is armed with a dedicated clinic for treating sports-related injuries with the emphasis on core strengthening, thereby helping the sportspersons to quickly regain their peak performance.

Arthroscopy

The arthroscope is a small fiber optic instrument that can be placed into the shoulder joint through a small incision. A camera is attached to a TV monitor, and pictures can be taken. The arthroscope allows a complete evaluation of the entire shoulder joint, including the ligaments, the rotator cuff, the biceps tendon, the joint lining, and the cartilage surface. Small instruments ranging from 3-5millimeters in size are inserted through an additional incision so that any injuries can be diagnosed, and damaged tissue can be repaired,reconstructed, or removed.Before the development of arthroscopy, large incisions had to be made over the shoulder joint to treat or diagnose injuries. Today’s arthroscopic techniques allow more complete evaluations of the joint while accelerating the rehabilitation process.

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a surgical technique that can diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. During the procedure, your surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera — called an arthroscope — into your knee. This allows them to view the inside of the joint on a screen. The surgeon can then investigate a problem with the knee and, if necessary, correct the issue using small instruments within the arthroscope.

Arthroscopy diagnoses several knee problems, such as a torn meniscus or a misaligned patella (kneecap). It can also reconstruct the ligaments of the joint. There are limited risks to the procedure and the outlook is good for most patients.

Arthroscopic surgery can diagnose and treat knee injuries, including:

  • torn anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments
  • torn meniscus (the cartilage between the bones in the knee)
  • patella that’s out of position
  • pieces of torn cartilage that are loose in the joint
  • removal of a Baker’s cyst
  • fractures in the knee bonesswollen synovium (the lining in the joint)
  • and a few other procedures

You will be given an anesthetic before your knee arthroscopy. This may be:

  • local (numbs your knee only)
  • regional (numbs you from the waist down)
  • general (puts you completely to sleep)

If you are awake, you may be able to watch the procedure on a monitor.

The surgeon will begin by making a few small incisions, or cuts, in your knee. Sterile salt water, or saline, will then pump in to expand your knee. This makes it easier for the surgeon to see inside the joint. The arthroscope enters one of the cuts and the surgeon will look around in your joint using the attached camera. The surgeon can see the images produced by the camera on the monitor in the operating room.

When the surgeon locates the problem in your knee, they may then insert small tools into the incisions to correct the issue. After the surgery, the surgeon drains the saline from your joint and closes your cuts with stitches.

Arthroscopy allows the surgeon to view the inside of the shoulder joint and perform a variety of surgeries. These surgeries include:

  • A complete evaluation of the joint (diagnostic arthroscopy)
  • Repair of torn or damaged cartilage or ligaments of the shoulder (in cases of shoulder instability)
  • Repair of a torn or damaged biceps tendon (in cases of biceps tendonitis or SLAP tears)
  • Evaluation and repair of the rotator cuff (in cases of rotator cuff tendonitis or tears)
  • Removal of the end of the clavicle (in cases of arthritis or pain of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint)
