Center for Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy

Center for Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy is a specialized organization in orthopaedic department in Nopparat Rajathanee hospital.

Our mission is to provide an excellent arthroscopic surgery and up-to-date treatments for sport injuries and sport-related diseases especially shoulder and knee injuries.

We perform arthroscopic surgery (key-hole surgery) for treating many conditions. Our surgeons and nurses have a lot of advanced knowledge and experiences in arthroscopic surgery.

The key-hole surgery is a minimally invasive procedure; the diameter of a camera is only 4 millimeters. Therefore, the surgical wound is only 1 centimeter long.

It results in much less post-operative pain when compared to a standard open surgery.

We also have established a special outpatient clinic for sports medicine patients. In the clinic, there is a team of physical therapists who have experiences in treating sport injury conditions.

Our services are not only for professional athletes but also general population.
