Sports medicine is a subspecialty in orthopedics that cares for injuries or wear and tear primarily of the knees and shoulders. The conditions do not necessarily occur due to an active life of sports or to athletes.
At Orthopedic Surgery Center of Orange County (OSC) we annually perform over 1400 procedures for the shoulder and knee for injuries and wear and tear. We have 6 Board Certified Orthopedic surgeons who specialize in care of the knee and shoulder. All efforts are made to treat ailments conservatively when appropriate before surgery is an option.
Some procedures we perform for sports medicine are as follows but not limited to this list
· Arthroscopic [minimal invasive] shoulder and knee surgery
· Arthroscopic shoulder – rotator cuff, labral and/or impingement repair
· Arthroscopic knee – menisectomy or meniscus repair
