Comprehensive Orthopaedic Services

Our nationally recognized physicians are often fellowship-trained in a wide spectrum of orthopaedic specialties:

  • Hand and Upper Extremity – Our hand surgeons deal with problems of the hand, wrist and forearms and, often, the shoulder and elbow.
  • Hip – Hip surgeons are experts at diagnosing and treating hip diseases such as osteoarthritis and hip fractures. Treatments include total and partial joint replacement.
  • Knee – Knee diseases such as ligament injuries, meniscus (torn cartilage) and miscellaneous knee problems are diagnosed and treated by experienced knee surgeons. Treatments include total and partial joint replacement.
  • Spine – Our spine surgeons are physicians who receive special training in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the neck (cervical spine), mid back (thoracic spine) and low back (lumbar spine).
  • Sports Medicine – Surgeons with subspecialty training in sports medicine, particularly the shoulder and knee, are skilled in minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures that can restore motion and return function for athletes. Common conditions treated are ACL tears of the knee and rotator cuff tears of the shoulder.
  • Revision Surgery – The average lifespan of the prosthesis used in joint replacement surgery is 10 years. Revision surgery, often more complex that the original surgery, is needed to replace the worn out prosthetic with a new one.
  • Arthroscopy Surgery – A minimally invasive procedure, arthroscopy is often used instead of traditional open surgery to give patients an easier surgical experience and a faster recovery.
  • Fracture and trauma - Related Services include cast care, custom orthopaedic bracing, lab service, and on-site imaging.
  • Foot and ankle - Foot and ankle problems can occur at any stage of life. The surgeons treat a wide range of conditions, including arthritis and fractures of different parts of the foot and ankle, diabetes-related issues and other foot problems like bunions and hammertoe.
