Sports Medicine

You do not have to be an athlete to receive care from the surgeons at Capital Orthopaedic Surgery Center. We treat people of all different ages and levels of fitness. Our surgeons treat shoulder, elbow, hip and knee injuries, abnormalities and degenerative conditions. Many of these disorders are treated with arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgical method that utilizes a camera to look inside a joint and specialized instruments to carry out any necessary surgery in that joint. Our goal is to help get you back to leading an active, pain-free life.

How do I know I need surgery?
When non-surgical options including medications, therapy, injections, or immobilization (wearing a brace or sprint) do not improve your pain, your surgeon may recommend surgery. Surgery may also be indicated if you have an injury that is caused by an accident or an advanced stage of chronic disease (i.e. osteoarthritis).
