The field of Sports Medicine includes orthopaedic care, such as setting a fracture or repairing a torn ligament including “overuse” injuries and conditions caused by repeated and excessive stress. Tendonitis and stress fractures fall into this category. Sports medicine deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatments of conditions. Ideally, the athlete can continue with the athletic activity while under treatment, or at least return to the activity as quickly as possible. Sports medicine physicians are concerned with diagnosis, treatment, and a speedy recovery. To assist in assessing and treating musculoskeletal injuries with as little trauma as possible, modern arthroscopy techniques are used.
