Depending on the degree of your injury, we will recommend the proper and least invasive treatment.
Our patients normally suffer from sports-related soft tissue injuries. We treat sprains, muscle strains, and
ligament tears. We will formulate a treatment plan that brings you the best results for your type of injury.
One of the least-invasive surgical options we offer is arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery involves
small incisions and the use of a camera that allows us to see your injury and correct it.
Though this will not take away from your healing time, it does allow us to treat your injury without
causing damage to the other structures in the area. This is one of the best sports medicine options that is
available in West Palm Beach. Since this procedure is done on an outpatient basis, it is much more comfortable
for our patients.
If you have suffered a sports-related injury that is putting a cramp in your style, please come see our specialist so
we can get you back to your favorite activities.
