Price are primary care sports medicine physicians who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and non-surgical treatment of sport-related injuries.
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure commonly used to treat sports injuries and other joint disorders. Utilizing a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope, which is inserted through a small incision, the surgeon has a clear view of the inside of the joint, allowing him or her to thoroughly examine the interior of the joint and determine the scope of the problem. The surgeon then inserts surgical instruments through other small incisions to remove or repair damaged tissue. Arthroscopy is a highly effective and relatively simple procedure for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of joint problems.
