Many sports related injuries such as sprains and strains can be treated non-operatively. Other, more complicated injuries such as ligament tears, tendon ruptures, and cartilage injuries may require surgery.

WJMC Sports Medicine These injuries are often diagnosed through a history and physical exam, but imaging such as xray, CT scan, and MRI may also be needed.

Surgical treatment of many sports related injuries can be performed through minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy. However, more extensive procedures may be needed to appropriately treat the injury as well.
