For an athlete, injuries mean downtime. After an injury, there are many unknowns – how severe your injury is, what your treatment options are, and just how long that downtime will be. The orthopedic and sports medicine specialists at Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates can explain the nature of your injury, options that are available to you, and recommend a course of action that is best for your situation.
For example, to avoid surgery, you may want to consider PRP injections for knee, shoulder, elbow, and ankle injuries. In the event your injury requires surgery, an arthroscopic procedure may be performed to minimize pain and downtime.
