Joint Replacement

Surgeons specializing in Joint Replacements use surgical and non-surgical methods to treat their patients. A physical examination, and possibly some laboratory tests, x-rays or MRI, will show the extent of damage to the joint. Joint Replacement will be considered if other treatment options will not relieve the pain and disability.


Hip

Hip surgery is one of the most common orthopaedic procedures and involves the repair or total replacement of the femur (the upper end of the thighbone) and the pelvic bone. Hip surgery treats osteoarthritis, the degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, as well as bone fractures from hip injuries.


Knee

There are three major types of knee surgery: arthroscopic, partial knee replacement, and total knee replacement. Your doctor will advise you as to which surgery is right for your situation.


You may be given the option to have an arthroscopic procedure or an open surgical procedure. Arthroscopy is a less invasive surgery commonly used for knees and shoulders. Open surgery may be necessary and, in some cases, may be associated with better results than arthroscopy. Open surgery often can be done through small incisions of just a few inches. Recovery and rehabilitation is related to the type of surgery performed inside the shoulder, rather than whether there was an arthroscopic or open surgical procedure.


Hand

The field of hand surgery deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand or upper extremity. Orthopaedic surgeons are particularly well suited to handle complex fractures of the hand and injuries to the carpal bones that alter the mechanics of the wrist. Hand surgeons perform a wide variety of operations such as fracture repairs, nerve decompressions, releases, and repairs of tendons and reconstruction of injuries, rheumatoid deformities and congenital defects.


Foot & Ankle

Physicians specializing in foot and ankle will use both surgical and non-surgical methods. Our orthopaedic specialists treat foot and ankle problems resulting from fractures, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory diseases.


Spine

Surgeons specializing in the Spine seek to evaluate patients and offer options that range from conservative measures through the more complex multilevel surgical procedures. This may include medications, physical therapy, patient counseling and patient education.
