Dr. Robert Hunter is at Rio Grande Hospital regularly on Fridays at our Specialty Clinic in Del Norte.
He specializes in knee, shoulder, hand, and wrist issues.
Dr. Hunter performs knee arthroscopy. Knee arthroscopy is a surgical technique that can diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera — called an arthroscope — into your knee. This allows them to view the inside of the joint on a screen. The surgeon can then investigate a problem with the knee and, if necessary, correct the issue using small instruments within the arthroscope. Arthroscopy diagnoses several knee problems, such as a torn meniscus or a misaligned patella (kneecap). It can also repair the ligaments of the joint. There are limited risks to the procedure and the outlook is good for most patients. Your recovery time and prognosis will depend on the severity of the knee problem and the complexity of the required procedure.
Known for his expertise in Carpal Tunnel and Trigger Finger Release, he has helped many people.
