Sports injuries are also an area of focus for Dr Tsung. Physical activity can often cause chronic knee and hip injuries through the repeated overuse of muscle groups or joints. This is usually a result of poor technique or structural abnormalities, so medically investigating sports injuries can be crucial to the longevity of knee and hip joints. This may be the case in instances where you incur an injury that’s more severe than you believe, such as when a fracture is actually a sprain.
Orthopaedic Surgery Options
Depending on the circumstances of your knee or hip, different surgery methods will be necessary.
Dr Tsung provides keyhole surgery, which is a method of surgery that is significantly less invasive than traditional surgery methods. As a keyhole surgeon, Dr Tsung uses a camera called an arthroscope along with specialised instruments, and passes these into the joint. This results in a procedure that causes minimal tissue trauma, typically results in less pain, is often completed within a day, and has a faster recovery time.
Dr Jason Tsung is also one of the first orthopaedic specialists on the Gold Coast to utilise robotic-assisted surgery. This form of surgery makes use of a technologically advanced arm known as the Stryker Mako Robot to help perform unicompartmental knee replacement and hip replacement surgery. This form of surgery allows for very accurate implant placement and alignment based on each patient’s specific anatomy when performing knee and hip replacement.
