Treatment for Sports Injuries in Central Arkansas
Many sports injuries do not require surgery and can be successfully treated with conservative options, such as cortisone injections, medication, or physical therapy, which we offer on site. We work closely with our team of physical and occupational therapists to provide a seamless continuum of care for you, from evaluation and treatment to rehabilitation and return to play.
For injuries or conditions that do require surgery, our sports medicine doctors are highly skilled experts in the latest surgical techniques, including minimally invasive, arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle, as well as ligament and tendon repair and reconstructive surgeries.
Our goal is to get you back to your pre-injury level of functioning quickly and safely. We will also provide you the education and tools you need to prevent further injury.
Step 1. Knee CT Scan
Step 2. Knee Personalized Planning
It’s important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopedic surgeon, who guides the robotic-arm during the surgery to position the implant in the knee joint. The Mako robotic-arm does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own, or move without the surgeon guiding the robotic-arm. The Mako system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
