Arthroscopic Revision in Detroit and Southeast Michigan
With arthroscopic revision in Detroit, Michigan, our orthopedic surgeons can correct a previous surgery of the hip, knee, rotator cuff, or other joints. In some instances, a previous joint surgery will not completely correct the issues it was intended to fix, or it can even cause more issues. When this happens, our sports medicine and orthopedic specialists can provide arthroscopic revision procedures to correct a failed or incomplete surgery.
In some cases, arthroscopic surgery may not successfully resolve the problem that it was performed to address, or it may even cause trauma to the tissues in the area, leading to additional issues over time. This can happen even if the prior surgery was performed for the correct reasons and with perfect technique. Progressive conditions, including scar tissue formation, can also present the need for revision surgery to reduce discomfort and improve the function of the joint.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive orthopedic procedure used to treat joint problems. This procedure involves the use of a narrow scope, called an arthroscope, and specialized surgical tools to access the joint through small incisions. With arthroscopic surgery in southeast Michigan, patients at DMC Medical Group have access to less invasive treatments to correct or repair damage that was missed or caused during a previous surgery.
When you come to see our sports medicine and orthopedic specialists at DMC Medical Group, we will examine the injury to assess the extent of damage and determine the best course of treatment, and if we determine that arthroscopic revision is the best option for your joint issue, we will walk you through what to expect before, during, and after your procedure. Whether you are undergoing surgery for the first time to address a joint issue, or undergoing surgery to fix a prior surgery or address a missed issue, we will provide you with compassionate, skilled care.
