Arthroscopic Surgeries for Sport Injuries

Kuching Specialist Hospital is pioneered with latest arthroscopic suite for treatment of various sports injuries.

Day care Surgeries


We provide arthroscopic treatment for shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle as day case surgeries. Patients are admitted at 8:30 am and were discharged by 7:00pm in the evening provided Day Case Surgeries Protocol is fullfiled Here are the example of day care surgeries:

Knee

One of the most commonly injured parts of the knee, the meniscus is a wedge-like rubbery cushion where the major bones of your leg connect. If you got meniscal tear and your knee becomes painful, stiff or locked, you may need surgical repair or debridement (trim off damaged pieces of cartilage). This can be done as day care surgeries provided the anterior cruciate ligament is intact.

Rotator cuff repair and biceps tendon surgeries

Rotator cuff tear can be happened in 2 groups of patients : Young atheletic group who has the rotator cuff tear through injuries and elderly group who has the cuff torn due to impingement and ischaemia (blood supply problem)Whe the rotator cuff is torn, patient will have weakness of shoulder when they need to raise the shoulder beyond 90 degrees, together with pain on elevation, night pain etc. The problem can be solved by arthroscopic or mini open repair of rotator cuff using suture anchor.

Arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligaments reconstruction

The anterior cruciate ligament is a major stabiliser of the knee joint. It attaches to both the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone).  This ligament prevents the femur from sliding abnormally on the tibia during activities such as running, pivoting and managing stairs or inclines.We use Patello Tendon Graft (bone-tendon-bone), Hamstring Graft (quadruple hamstring technique) or fresh frozen patella tendon allograft technique to reconstruct the ligament through arthroscopy (key hole techniques).
