What to Expect with Surgery
Once you and your surgeon detemine that you are a candidate for surgery, you will review the possible risks associated with your particular procedure and surgery in general. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medicines and ask you not to eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery.
Sports medicine surgeons employ a minimally invasive, arthroscopic technique in many procedures related to sports injuries, especially those involving the knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, wrist and elbow joints. Arthroscopy requires a smaller incision and uses pencil-sized instruments equipped with a camera to repair joints or other conditions, generally resulting in a faster recovery time.
Most sports medicine procedures are considered outpatient procedures, meaning you will be able to return home the same day as your surgery. Before you leave, your surgeon or nurse will instruct you on what medicine to take for pain control and whether or not you will need to follow up with any physical therapy.
