When you trust your orthopedic care to a team of specialists, arthroscopic surgeries have a much greater potential for success. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds can perform a number of beneficial procedures using arthroscopic surgery. Both physicians have combined experience in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery.
Arthroscopic surgery is instrumental in the investigation and monitoring of injuries and diseases of the joints. Small incisions allow Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds to carry out an examination and provide treatment, without fully opening up the joint.
At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics in California, arthroscopic surgery allows our team to determine the suitability of joint preservation treatment options. This conservative treatment approach focuses on restoring movement and function to an affected joint while trying to maintain the integrity of the original structure.
Reduced Scarring and Recovery Time
Reduced scarring and recovery time are additional potential benefits of using arthroscopic surgery in place of traditional, open surgery. By limiting the amount of trauma to surrounding tissues, smaller incisions and tools result in scars that are barely visible.
Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can significantly improve healing outcomes for our patients with arthroscopic surgery. Major surgery to repair damage to a joint can sometimes produce unpredictable side effects. By using arthroscopic surgery to carefully examine a joint, Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds can provide better assurances surrounding the necessity of treatment and any potential outcomes.
Silicon Valley Orthopaedics may be able to offer arthroscopic surgery if you have reservations about open surgery to repair damage to a joint, ligament or tendon.
All treatment recommendations provided by Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds are based on a comprehensive clinical examination. Contact our office today to learn more about arthroscopic surgery or to book an appointment at our California practice.
