Overview
  • Arthroscopic surgery: Tendon and ligament repairmen
Shoulder injuries are frequently caused by athletic activities. In the past, the treatments, including tendon repairment associated with habitual shoulder dislocation, reefing of joint capsule, repair of distal biceps brachii tendon ruptures and repair of rotator cuff tears, all are required a traditional open surgery. However, now these treatments can be performed with a minimally invasive approach.
Patients experience not only shorter hospital stay and less pain, but also relatively reduced recovery time.
  • Arthroscopic surgery: Cartilage repair
Wrist sprains are most often caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand. This frequently occurs during sports and car accidents. Due to the tears in ligaments, patients suffer from weak grip-strength and feel great pain when twisting the wrist. It could sometimes be quite difficult to diagnose a fracture in wrist even with X-ray, CT scan or MRI scan. Therefore, patients are diagnosed with muscle or ligament inflammation, and asked to have anti-inflammatory drugs and rehabilitation. With the improvement in optical engineering, a small tube (arthroscope) containing a camera and a light was made for cartilage repair surgery.
Tear in triangular cartilage, which was impossible to be repaired, now could be sutured under 2 small (less than 0.5cm) incisions with arthroscopic techniques.
 
  • Reconstruction of cruciate ligament and meniscal cartilage repair surgery
Arthroscopic surgery is currently the standard procedure for reconstruction of cruciate ligament and repair of meniscal cartilage. Improvement of fixation methods allows for a much shorter recovery time. The traditional repair surgery of meniscal tear may damage the surrounding peroneal nerves. However, with the advanced equipment and technique, surgeons are able to repair the tear within the knee and prevent possible complications.
Features
In western countries, sports medicine has grown in importance over years due to abundant medical resources and advanced development in professional sports. With newly developed treatments and technologies, patients with sports injuries can return to the playing field as soon as possible. Because of the increase in national income and prevalent in recreational sports, sports medicine has gained national attention and understanding in recent year in Taiwan. If you have any problems with sports injuries or questions for injury prevention, please make an appointment with our specialists at FEMH Orthopedics Center.
