I am back in the gym and training for my next Iron Man. I put off my shoulder surgery because I dreaded the recovery. Had I known it would be so quick I would have done this years ago. My quality of life has improved dramatically.
Arthroscopy is a common treatment for sports related injuries. Our specialists may use a combination of this procedure and open surgery. Common injuries that can be treated using arthroscopy alone include tendon, ligament, and cartilage tears, rotator cuff tears, and inflamed joints. Arthroscopy is often used when treating knees, elbows, shoulders, ankles, hips, and wrists.
I was diagnosed with a labrum tear after a mountain biking accident. I was convinced this was the end of my biking days. I could not have been more wrong after my experience with OSI. I was scheduled for surgery, had the procedure, and before long I will begin my PT program. In no time I will be back on my bike.
I learned my ACL was torn and surgery was the only way back. The nurses and team at OSI were so helpful and got me back much sooner than I thought was possible after my procedure.
