Joint Preservation and Reconstruction
Almost everyone in the family is active today, even grandparents! For them, the effects of pain, muscle weakness and limited activity associated with aging or arthritis can have a significant impact on their quality of life. Our medical professionals understand these concerns, and use their clinical expertise to combine minimally invasive surgical techniques with new durable joint materials for optimal results. In selected cases, even younger patients with joint impairment are choosing joint replacements to get back to a more normal lifestyle more quickly.
Athletic injuries don’t just happen to the pros; they can happen to anyone in the day-to-day game of life. Whether at work or play, injuries can seriously slow down your active lifestyle.
Our sports medicine physicians are as committed as you are to your rapid and successful recovery. We not only help you heal better and faster, but also provide education to minimize the risk of injury in the future. Here are some of the highlights of our program:
- Cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques for joints combined with a coordinated rehabilitation team for shoulder, knee, ankle and upper extremity injuries.
- Outreach programs to educate our community about preventive care and injury recognition.
- Classes for strength building, flexibility, conditioning, endurance and training techniques.
If you’re the head of your household then your family depends on you for security and well-being. Unfortunately, work-related back pain or injuries can seriously affect your performance on the job. With 20 years of experience in treating spine cases, our spine surgeons care for a variety of spine disorders caused by the effects of repeated injuries or spinal degeneration, including herniated discs, bone fractures, osteoporosis, scoliosis, arthritis and acute pain. Our surgeons are highly qualified to perform cutting-edge surgical procedures, many of them minimally invasive, including cervical fusion, discectomy, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty and nucleoplasty.
Hand and Upper Extremity Care
Our hands and upper extremities function through an intricate balance of tendons, ligaments and bones. Hand and wrist injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, take place slowly over time. But they can also be the result of fractures, ligament or cartilage tears, nerve entrapment, tendonitis, cysts, inflammation or arthritis. These conditions, especially the identification of wrist pain, often require the expertise of a hand and upper extremity orthopedic surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment. Our orthopedic surgeons are specially trained and certified in reconstructive hand, wrist and elbow surgery, arthroscopic techniques, joint replacements and other treatments. Also, our rehabilitation team counts with the expertise of certified hand therapists for treating hand injuries.
Foot and Ankle Care
Today, most people are on the run. And they aren’t always wearing the most appropriate shoes. Whether it’s work, school, home or all three, trauma to the feet or ankles can easily accumulate over time. Podiatric surgeons can treat a variety of conditions, such as trauma-related injuries, structural, skin and nail conditions and hereditary deformities. Podiatric foot and ankle surgeons are uniquely qualified to detect the early stages of diseases that display warning signs in the lower extremities, as well as treat those foot conditions that pose an ongoing threat to a patient’s overall health. Some of these diseases include diabetes, arthritis, and even cardiovascular disease.
Diagnostic and Rehabilitation Services
We’ve put together a team of medical professionals to help you heal and regain your normal physical activity more quickly. From the board-certified radiologists with access to outstanding diagnostic imaging equipment (MRI) to the physical therapists helping you through your rehabilitation program, you will see the benefits of coordinated teamwork throughout your treatment. To prevent invasive procedures or enhance your post-surgical recovery, you will participate in activities that restore strength, motion and flexibility, and reduce pain swiftly and safely. Joint replacement patients especially benefit from a short but intensive inpatient stay to build strength and coordination with their new joint. Our inpatient rehabilitation program has consistently demonstrated top-quality customer service and clinical excellence.
