Services we offer
Our orthopedic surgeons are trained to deal with problems that develop in the bones, joints and ligaments of the human body. Orthopedic surgery corrects problems that arise in the skeleton and its attachments, ligaments and tendons. It may also deal with some problems of the nervous system, such as those that arise from injury of the spine. These problems can occur at birth, through injury or as the result of aging. Orthopedic surgery can include but not limited to:
- Hand surgery
- Shoulder and elbow surgery
- Pediatric orthopedics
- Foot and ankle surgery
- Surgical sports medicine
- Arthritis surgery
- Fracture care surgery
Total joint reconstruction
Joint replacement is the surgical replacement of a joint with an artificial prosthesis. The most common joints to be replaced are hips and knees. There is ongoing work on elbow and shoulder replacement, but some joint problems are still treated with joint resection (the surgical removal of the joint in question) or interpositional reconstruction (the reassembly of the joint from constituent parts).
70 percent of joint replacements are performed because arthritis has caused the joint to stiffen and become painful to the point where normal daily activities are no longer possible. If the joint does not respond to conservative treatment such medication, weight loss, activity restriction and use of walking aids such as a cane, joint replacement is considered appropriate.
Hip replacement surgery
Is it difficult for you to walk or to climb stairs? Do you spend more time than not thinking about your hip pain? Maybe it is time to do something about your pain. If all other conservative treatment options have failed, it may be time to consider having joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery has been successful in over 90 percent of patients helping them gain mobility, relief from pain and an improved quality of life.
