Ligament and Tendon Injury Treatment Denver
Often, ligament and tendon injuries are associated with some type of sports activity but ligament tears can also occur during what people might call more ‘routine’ activities. Whether you experience an injury running for a first-down while playing in the annual Thanksgiving flag football game, or by reaching overhead for something on the top shelf in your garage, you want to be treated by an expert in this type of injury.
The surgeons with the Presbyterian/St. Luke’s orthopedic program are experts at evaluating and treating ligament tear in professional athletes and ‘weekend warriors’. Common ligament injuries managed include:
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears
- Rotator cuff tears
- Achilles tendon rupture
- Shoulder dislocation
- Ankle ligament tear
- Elbow tendonitis
Through a through exam, in combination with advanced imaging, they are able to diagnose the problem and work with you to decide on the appropriate treatment plan. If surgery is necessary, the surgeons are board certified in orthopedics with advanced training in arthroscopic repair of ligament injury.
