- Will I need surgery?
Each condition and injury is unique, and as such an individual treatment plan is created for every patient. Many patients are treated without surgery. Non-surgical options frequently involve physical therapy, injections, rest or an individual return to activity/sport plan.
- What is minimally invasive surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery in the shoulder and elbow utilizes cutting edge technology that allows many injuries to be treated with only small incisions, typically measuring less then 1cm (approximately 1/3 on an inch) each.
- Will I have a scar?
Although all surgeries require an incision in the skin, Dr. Cagle takes great pride in ensuring the incision(s) are as small as possible and are positioned carefully. Additionally, all incisions are repaired to ensure optimal cosmetic results.
- When can I return to normal daily functions?
Most patients are able to return to daily tasks almost immediately after surgery with restrictions for the operative arm. However, this may differ with the severity of the injury and the degree of surgery necessary.
- Will I be able to drive after surgery?
Cagle recommends a period of 2-6 weeks off from driving after a surgery. This depends on the type of surgery and the prescribed recovery plan. Please speak with Dr. Cagle about this once a treatment plan has been decided upon.
- When will I be able to return to work?
Many patients are able to return to work within a few days to a few weeks after surgery. Returning to full duty will depend on individual job requirements and the treatment plan decided upon.
- When will I be able to return to exercise or sports?
We have the privilege of taking care of recreational, collegiate and professional athletes and we strive to ensure everyone is able to return to their sport as quickly as possible.
