At our orthopedic center, we seek to deliver the best and most complete care to our patients for injuries and diseases of the ligaments, tendons, nerves, muscles, and bones in the body. If non-surgical treatment methods are not effective, we utilize surgical procedures for treatment in order to reduce pain and restore your range of motion.
In many cases, our surgical treatments are minimally invasive, which means that there is less bleeding and scarring and quicker recovery times. Another option is robotic assisted surgery, which delivers similar benefits to minimally-invasive techniques.
In some cases, traditional surgery that requires a long incision may be necessary. You can count on our medical professionals to choose the best type of surgery for your situation.
Some of the most common surgical procedures that we perform include, but are not limited to:
- Spine surgery: We take a multi-facet approach to spine surgery and use minimally invasive methods whenever possible. Spinal surgeries performed at our center include percutaneous instrumentation, microdiscectomy, laminectomy, spinal fusion, and spinal cord stimulator implantation.
- Arthroscopy: The examination of the internal structure of a joint, this type of procedure allows us to have a better idea of a diagnosis or treatment that is needed. We use small incisions and instruments, along with a monitor, in order to view everything we need.
- Removal or repair of damaged cartilage: There are several ways to surgically repair damaged cartilage. Some of the methods use the patient’s own cells to grow healthy, new cartilage, while others promote controlled bleeding in the area to stimulate cartilage growth.
- Ripped tendon repair: During this procedure, your surgeon will secure the torn ends of the tendon together.
- Bone graft substitution: This is most commonly used in arms, legs, hips, and knees. During the procedure, your orthopedic surgeon will shape the bone graft into a shape that fits the area and secure it with screws, plates, or pins.
