Bergen County Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy
Sports medicine is focused on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries. Specialists within this field, such as the medical team at Bergen County’s Kayal Orthopaedic Center, PC, play an increasingly significant role in keeping you “on top of your game.” Our coordinated team effort incorporates and integrates the talents of physicians, orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation specialists, and physical therapists. This comprehensive team approach allows athletes to minimize downtime and accelerates their return to normal activities.
Sports-related injuries can happen to just about anyone. Athletes at all levels have experienced minor injuries, such as ankle sprains or strained muscles. Some injuries, such as tennis elbow, are due to overuse. Others, such as torn ligaments, are due to trauma. Examples of common sports-related injuries include:
Many sports injuries can be treated with arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgical method. Rather than traditional open incisions that cut through muscle, arthroscopic surgery is performed through very small incisions. A tiny, fiber-optic camera and specialized instruments are inserted into the incisions to examine the joint and perform any necessary procedures.
