Orthopedic services we provide

Our specialists offer a wide range of services, including:

Sports medicine

We can help you prevent sports injuries from occurring, and if they do, we have the expertise to get you back on the field of play. We also provide services for non-athletes who are simply looking to improve their strength and endurance.

Joint replacement

You may need to have a joint replaced if you suffered an injury or have joint disease such as arthritis. During this procedure, parts of your joint are removed and replaced with a prosthesis made out of metal or plastic. Knee, hip and ankle replacements are the most common type of joint replacement.

Arthroscopic surgery

Arthroscopic surgery, or arthroscopy, is performed on the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle or hip. It is a minimally invasive procedure, which means a narrow scope (arthroscope) and specialized surgical tools are used to assess and treat a joint through small incisions.

Spine surgery

Spine surgery is performed to alleviate pain. These procedures vary with some being minimally invasive, allowing for a quicker recovery, and other more extensive surgeries that may require more intensive physical therapy and a longer recovery time.

Shoulder surgery

If you have a damaged or diseased shoulder joint, you many need surgery to repair it. Surgery is often used to repair rotator cuff tears, dislocations and separations.

Total ankle replacement

Total ankle replacement, or total ankle arthroplasty, involves replacing the ankle joint with an artificial joint made of metal or plastic. This is done to relieve pain caused by arthritis in the ankle and to give the patient better mobility.

Bunionectomy-forefoot surgery

A bunion is a bump that forms on the outside of the big toe, forcing it to angle inwards toward the other toes. A bunionectomy is performed to move the toes back into proper position.

Haglund’s resection

Haglund’s deformity is a bony bump that forms on the back of your heel that can cause pain. A haglund’s resection is a surgical procedure performed to remove the bump. If your Achilles tendon has been damaged, it may need to be repaired also.

Morton’s neuroma resection

Inflammation or thickening of the nerves can occur between the bones located between the toes. This can cause irritation and swelling. Surgery can be performed to remove the nerves in the ball of the foot and release tight ligaments surrounding the area.

Rheumatoid forefoot reconstruction

Rheumatoid forefoot deformities are caused by joint inflammation, ligaments that have become loose and weakening of joint cartilage. Reconstruction surgery can be performed to reduce or eliminate pain and restore the normal look and alignment of the foot.
