Expert assessment and treatment of sports-related shoulder injuries in London and Kent
Injuries to the shoulder are common in throwing and overhead sports such as cricket, tennis, golf and swimming, and in contact sports such as rugby. The shoulder joint is the most mobile in the body, but is inherently unstable and prone to dislocation. Damage and tears to the ligaments, tendons and cartilage of the joint can also occur relatively easily.
Expert assessment of shoulder symptoms such as pain, weakness and instability following a sports injury is important, as it is not unusual for more serious injuries to look very similar to simple muscle strains. With access to the latest diagnostic equipment including MRI and ultrasound, Mr Sait is highly experienced in correctly evaluating shoulder damage, helping him to implement the most suitable course of treatment in each individual case. Where surgery is indicated, he always aims to treat the problem using keyhole techniques (arthroscopic surgery) wherever possible, maximising a patient's chance of a quick return to sport.
Sports injuries to the knee
A complex joint with many components, the knee is very susceptible to injury, particularly during sporting activity. The most common injuries seen are those involving the knee ligaments and the knee meniscus. Injuries to the ligaments such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) can occur in sports that involve rapid deceleration, landing from a jump, sudden changes of direction and tackling. The meniscus is a tough rubbery disc of cartilage that acts as a shock absorber in the knee and is often torn at the same time as any ligament damage.
Mr Sait offers expert assessment and treatment for sports injuries to the knee, including arthroscopic ACL ligament reconstruction and arthroscopic meniscal repair surgery.
