The specialists at Orthopaedic Associates of New Orleans are skilled in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulders, knees, and ankles. Arthroscopic surgery is minimally invasive and involves using a small camera to see inside a joint without making large incisions. These surgeries are less painful than traditional open surgery and lead to a quicker recovery.
Through arthroscopic surgery, the experts at OANO are able to perform arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs, including “double row” repairs; arthroscopic subacromial decompressions to remove painful bone spurs; and arthroscopic labral repairs for shoulder instability and shoulder dislocations.
The physicians at OANO can also treat many knee disorders with arthroscopic surgery. These include arthroscopic treatment of ACL tears, meniscus tears, and other cartilage injuries around the knee.
OANO also performs arthroscopic surgery to treat common ankle disorders that do not respond to other treatments.
