Arthroscopic surgery has evolved greatly in the last decade. Better equipment and improved arthroscopic techniques now allow orthopaedic surgeons, like those at Virginia Orthopaedic & Spine Specialists, to address conditions like loose bodies, joint stiffness, and tennis elbow lesions in smaller joints, like the elbow.
A thorough evaluation of a patient’s medical history, physical well-being, and imaging results is needed prior to surgery to determine patient eligibility for this kind of procedure. And, following surgery, a detailed rehabilitation program, like that facilitated by our partners at Bon Secours In Motion Physical Therapy, will maximize a patient’s chances for an excellent outcome with accelerated return to activity!
