Minimally Invasive Procedures and Same-day Discharge.

The fastest way to get bone and muscle relief.

Arthroscopic Procedures

Arthroscopic procedures utilize new technology to perform surgery with lower risks and quicker recovery times. The surgeon makes a small incision and inserts a camera to complete the procedure without having to open the joint. This is a powerful alternative to traditional open surgery.

Minimal damage to connective tissue

 Shorter procedure times, Same-day discharge

 Reduced post-op pain and faster recovery

 Lower chance of infection and complications

What We Do

Sports injury can be incredibly frustrating, especially when it takes you out of the game you love. Damage to soft tissues like ACL or PCL tears and to joints like knee instability or shoulder dislocation are common occurrences during physical activity, but can be corrected without a major surgery. Our surgeons are highly trained in Sports Medicine: we have a former NFL player and a surgeon that worked with athletes at The Ohio State University.

When surgical options are appropriate, our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques which result in less blood loss and tissue damage, less pain, and a faster recovery to get you back in the game sooner.

Total joint replacement is when parts of a damaged point are replaced with a metal, plastic, or ceramic prosthesis, restoring the function of a healthy joint. Generally patients getting knee or hip replacements have damaged cartilage around the bone because of arthritis, fractures, or other medical conditions. If conservative treatments such as physical therapy or medications do not alleviate your pain, you may be a good candidate for total joint replacement. Joint replacements generally last for many years and make daily tasks much easier.

Most of our procedures are minimally invasive: they are done through one or two smaller incisions and result in less blood loss and reduced scarring relative to traditional knee surgery. With larger replacements, the surgeon may opt for a different type of surgery.

Medical conditions, repetitive motion, and trauma to the hand or shoulder can cause a host of conditions including fractures, dislocation, nerve/vascular problems, and growths or tumors. These can in the hand or shoulder itself as well as in the wrist or forearm.

If conservative treatments such as physical therapy or medications do not alleviate your pain, our surgeons will recommend surgery to help restore the function in your hand. In most cases we utilize minimally invasive surgery techniques which result in less blood loss and tissue damage, less pain, and a faster recovery.

Ankle and foot problems include debilitating pain, arthritis, developmental defects, or deformity caused by poorly healed bones. By correcting the issue you can often relieve the pain.

If conservative treatments such as physical therapy or medications do not alleviate your pain, our surgeons will recommend surgery to help restore the function in your foot. In most cases we utilize minimally invasive surgery techniques which result in less blood loss and tissue damage, less pain, and a faster recovery.

Our surgeons are equipped to help infants with club feet to high school athletes. Pediatric Orthopedics covers conditions including cerebral palsy, limb fractures, congenital deformities, and gait abnormalities. By correcting the issue you can often relieve pain, correct posture, or get your child back in the game they love.

If conservative treatments such as physical therapy or medications do not alleviate pain or abnormalities, our surgeons will recommend surgery to help restore function. In most cases we utilize minimally invasive surgery techniques which result in less blood loss and tissue damage, less pain, and a faster recovery.
