Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation
Our orthopedic team at Einstein uses some of the most advanced surgical and non-surgical techniques to help athletes heal faster and get back in the game. These include:
Minimally Invasive Arthroscopic Surgeries
When performing surgery to reconstruct or repair ligaments, tendons and joints, we use the latest minimally invasive techniques. These include all-inside ACL reconstruction and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with biologic augmentation. These types of surgeries preserve healthy tissue as much as possible to reduce post-operative pain and recovery time.
Corticosteroids can help reduce inflammation and provide lasting relief for certain types of injuries. In order to make sure that the injection is delivered to the precise location where it will be most effective, an ultrasound device is used to guide the injection.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses the body’s own powerful healing mechanisms. Injecting a concentration of platelet-rich plasma into an injured area can accelerate the healing of certain types of injuries. Platelet-rich plasma is made by taking a few vials of your blood and using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. An ultrasound device is then used to guide the injection into the target area.
Einstein’s orthopedic specialists and certified physical therapists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that is designed to help you recover as quickly as possible so that you can safely return to training and competition.
