For years we have diagnosed, treated, and prevented sports-related injuries for Randolph County and the Asheboro community. Some of the most common sports injuries we encounter include cartilage tears, ligament ruptures in the knee, and shoulder or knee pain. If you have an existing injury, we can examine a wide range of treatment options to determine which one is right for you. Our physical therapists can also help you prevent future injuries by working with you on strength and flexibility exercises.
Anatomic ACL Reconstruction
Anatomic ACL reconstruction is an innovative and unique technique for replacing a damaged anterior cruciate ligament. The procedure itself involves placing the new ligament in the identical anatomic position as the original one. The two different variations are a “single-bundle” or a “double-bundle” reconstruction. That terminology simply refers to the quantity of grafts that will be used to recreate the ACL.
Meniscal Root Tear Repair
Knee injuries are one of the more serious concerns to athletes regardless of their sports focus. The knee is composed of four bones connected by ligaments for stability, tendons that connect the bones to muscles allowing for movement, and cartilage between the bones, behind the kneecap, providing a kind of cushion for shock absorption. This means that to properly understand the nature of a knee injury it is necessary to consult a physician to determine the best course of treatment. One particular type of knee injury is getting special attention of late: meniscal root tears.
Meniscal Root Tears
The lateral meniscus and medial meniscus are c-shaped pieces of cartilage that sit atop the tibia or shin bone. The menisci are the cartilage pieces providing the cushion and shock absorption between the tibia and the femur or thigh bone. When the knee is twisted or suffers some form of trauma. Meniscal root tears tend to occur in conjunction with other ligament tears as a result of the trauma sustained causing the injury.
Meniscal Root Repair
When it comes to repairing a meniscal root tear, surgery is the method of treatment, and can be done as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with surgery to address other ligament and tendon tears. Meniscal root repair in an arthroscopic procedure designed to be minimally invasive making the smallest incision possible and using specialized equipment to stitch together or bind the cartilage in place to allow the body to heal.

If you’re considering a knee arthroscopy due to an ACL tear or a meniscus tear, come see the doctors at Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Our doctors can evaluate your condition and determine if surgery is necessary.
A knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Through small incisions, the surgeon inserts an arthroscope into the knee to perform the surgery. This allows the doctor to see the interior structures of the knee on a video monitor as opposed to previous methods of knee surgery.
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair (Shoulder)
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair is a surgical technique for repairing a rotator cuff tear. Surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff most often involves re-attaching the tendon to the head of humerus (upper arm bone). During arthroscopy, a small camera is inserted into the shoulder joint. The camera displays pictures on a television screen, and the surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments. Because the arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, the surgeon can use very small incisions, rather than the larger incision needed for standard, open surgery.
