Surgery Can Help After Sports Injuries

Most sports injuries can be treated by taking steps such as resting the injured body part and using ice packs, heat or other treatments. But other times, sports injuries require surgery. At OSF Saint Clare Medical Center, you’ll find the skilled surgeons and the advanced equipment needed to get you back onto the field.

Who Provides Sports Medicine at OSF Saint Clare?

OSF Saint Clare Orthopedics is a comprehensive orthopedic clinic offering treatment to a wide variety of injuries and conditions. The surgeons present all options for your consideration before suggesting surgery. 

What Are Some of the Most Common Sports Procedures?

Sports injuries often involve damaged and torn ligaments in the knees, shoulders or other joints and soft tissues. Surgery is sometimes needed to repair damaged cartilage or ligaments.

Repair of an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury is one of the most common injuries to athletes who participate in sports such as soccer, football and basketball. A tear in the ACL can come about after changing direction rapidly or stopping suddenly, among other causes. A torn ACL will not heal without surgery, so active patients will typically require a graft.

Meniscus tears are another common injury that will not usually heal without surgery. The meniscus is a piece of cartilage located between your thigh bone and shinbones.
