Bone & Joint

Orthopaedic surgery is a speciality dealing with acute injuries, congenital and acquired disorders and chronic arthritic or overuse conditions of the bones, joints and their associated soft tissues, including ligaments, nerves and muscles.

 

Total Joint Replacement

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which certain parts of an arthritic or damaged joint, such as a knee joint, are removed and replaced with an artificial joint that moves like a healthy joint.

Total Knee Replacement

If you have very severe arthritis, for example, total knee replacement surgery may be an option. When knee replacement surgery is performed, the cartilage of the knee joint is replaced with a metal and plastic implant. Sometimes, the artificial joint is anchored in place with bone cement or a material is used that allows the bone tissue to grow into it.

Total Hip Replacement

The procedure involves removing the ball and socket of a joint with arthritis and inserting a new ball and socket to allow movement at the new joint. There are many types of total hip replacement implant options including the type of material (metal and ceramic), and how the implant is designed to work.

Total Shoulder Replacement

This procedure involves replacing damaged bone and cartilage with an implant made of metal and plastic. It is much like the hip procedure. This procedure can improve range of motion at the shoulder joint.

Rotator Cuff Repair

The rotator cuff helps keep your shoulder anchored and helps it to move, too. A tear in the cuff can limit your range of motion and cause pain. Many times these tears can be repaired with surgery to relieve pain and improve strength and functioning of the shoulder.

Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopy is a method of viewing or performing surgery on a joint by use of an arthroscope, which consists of a tube, a lens, and a light source using fiber optics to visualize the surgical area. Our orthopedic surgeons perform shoulder, knee, hip, and other repairs with arthroscopy. The incision made for inserting the arthroscope is very small, and fewer stitches may be required. The advantage to arthroscopy is a smaller incision heals more quickly and there is less trauma to tissue.

Spine Surgery

There are a variety of problems that may lead to spine surgery. The main reason is to improve function and remove back pain. There are a number of procedures that come under the umbrella of spine surgery, and these procedures are done if more conservative treatment, such as medication or physical therapy, don't work. These include such common procedures as laminectomy, diskectomy, fusion, and spinal decompressions. Kyphoplasty is a less-invasive technique for the pain of spinal fractures often caused by osteoporosis.

Ankle Replacement

A variety of problems with the ankles and wrists require surgical treatment. Overuse injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, stress fractures and sprains can often be treated with surgery if more conservative treatment fails.

ACL Reconstruction

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the major stabilizing ligament of the knee. When it ruptures, reconstruction can be performed in a number of ways.
