Orthopaedic Surgery Q & A

Why Might I Need Orthopaedic Surgery?

Whether you sustain an injury or develop a musculoskeletal disease, the surgeons at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine perform surgery when needed to ensure optimal healing, correct deformities, relieve your pain, and restore function.

These are several conditions that often require surgery, including:

  • ACL and other ligament tears
  • Achilles tendon ruptures
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Degenerated joints
  • Complex fractures
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis

From repairing soft tissues to bone grafts and internal fixation to hold broken bones in place, you can depend on the experienced surgeons at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine.

What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that’s performed to diagnose and treat problems in your joints. The procedure begins with one small incision through which your doctor inserts a narrow arthroscope.

The arthroscope contains lighting and a camera that sends real-time, magnified images of your joint to a monitor. After examining the tissues and determining or verifying your diagnosis, your doctor can proceed to treat the problem, performing your surgery by inserting surgical tools through other small incisions.

During arthroscopy, your surgeon may accomplish a number of procedures, including:

  • Repair or remove damaged cartilage
  • Repair or reconstruct torn ligaments
  • Release and repair tendons
  • Remove loose bone and cartilage
  • Remove inflamed and infected tissues
  • Replace joints

Nearly every joint in your body can be examined arthroscopically, but minimally invasive surgery is most often performed on the knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, elbow, and wrist.

What are the Benefits of Arthroscopic Surgery?

In some cases, open surgery is the best choice, but whenever possible, the surgeons at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine prefer to use arthroscopic surgery. The small incisions cause less trauma compared to one, long open incision. As a result, you gain benefits such as:

  • Less bleeding during surgery
  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Quicker recovery
  • Faster return to activity
  • Lower risk of infection

During minimally invasive surgery, your doctor may leave key muscles and tendons intact, which contributes to a faster recovery.
