Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that offers orthopedic surgeons the ability to access, navigate and operate on a given joint through small incisions. Conditions treated include activity related joint pain, tendon and cartilage injury in the hip, knee and shoulder, chondromalacia and synovitis.
When one of your joints is forced from its normal position, immediate medical care is necessary. Due to the pain and swelling, patients may not be able to distinguish between a dislocated joint or a broken bone, which requires them to be fully evaluated by a medical professional. The majority of dislocations are the result of a fall, impact or an auto-accident. When your joint becomes dislocated, patients will experience sudden pain and will not be able to move the affected extremity, such as their arm or leg.

Auto-accidents, falls and sports related injuries usually occur with high-impact which can fracture, displace and shatter bones. Any injuries that are sustained during a high-impact activity should promptly be evaluated by an orthpedic trauma team.

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint. We offer a joint replacement education class for patients prior to surgery.

Patients can develop a bone infection that is commonly caused after bone surgery, through a staph infection or other infections located in other areas of the body. Patients with diabetes and peripheral vascular disease tend to be at a higher risk due to an increased risk of infection with these conditions. If osteomyelitis is not treated quickly, an abscess can develop in the bone or a blood infection can occur.
