Our hips and knees bear our full body weight while allowing for an incredibly wide range of motion, making them susceptible to injury and arthritis. There are many types of hip and knee problems that are the result of sports injury, trauma, or arthritis. We have experienced experts for Hip and Knee Conditions. Our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons have completed Fellowship Training, research, and presented nationally and internationally to their peers about the latest state-of-the-art treatments and technology.
We are proud to offer the latest orthopedic advances, such as minimally invasive joint replacement and hip resurfacing along with traditional treatments. In addition to being recognized leaders in the orthopedic field, our surgical team and professional staff are caring people who are dedicated to providing you with the best "bedside manner" and unsurpassed service during all aspects of your treatment and recovery
Shoulder & Elbow
Shoulder and elbow pain are extremely common complaints that have many causes. Because we use our arms for so many common activities, shoulder and elbow pain can cause significant problems and have several different causes. Arthritis is a major cause of shoulder pain. During arthritis, the cartilage is worn away and the protective lining between the bones is lost, causing painful bone on bone friction and rubbing. Severe shoulder arthritis is quite painful, and can cause restriction of motion. Additionally, injury resulting in strains and fractures can be another cause for shoulder and elbow pain.
At The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery, we have specific expertise in a broad spectrum of shoulder, elbow, and upper extremity problems, and employ the latest in surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat these problems. Our trained shoulder and elbow surgeons handle a comprehensive range of athletic, degenerative, and traumatic disorders including arthritis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis and tendinitis, fractures golfer's elbow and tennis elbow.
While the symptoms of shoulder pain may be tolerated with medications and lifestyle adjustments, there may come a time when surgical treatment is necessary. Total shoulder joint replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, removes the damaged portion of the shoulder joint and replaces it with artificial implants. Shoulder arthroplasty relieves pain and restores function for most people. At The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery, our Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeons have specialized advanced training in total shoulder replacement. Our compassionate surgeons and professional staff will provide you with a seamless continuum of care, from evaluation to treatment.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement
Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty is a relatively new procedure that can bring a substantial decrease in shoulder pain and significant increase in function to your shoulder, if it is right for you. A Reverse Shoulder Replacement can be of benefit for you if you are suffering from long-standing rotator cuff degeneration that makes it difficult to lift your arm.Reverse arthroplasty is necessary when degeneration is caused by a lack of a functioning rotator cuff over time. Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty differs from traditional shoulder replacements in that the "socket" of the shoulder is replaced with the "ball," and vice versa, allowing the intact muscles around the shoulder to lift the arm. In effect, bypassing the non-functioning rotator cuff and relying on the deltoid muscle to lift the arm. The surgeons at The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery have advanced training in reverse shoulder replacements and are restoring function and mobility to patients not previously considered a candidate for shoulder replacement.
Rotator Cuff Tear & Repair
A rotator cuff is a group of tendons that help the upper arm stay in place at the shoulder and allow you to lift your arm. Sudden shoulder movements, falls, or overuse can cause the rotator cuff to tear. The decision on how to treat rotator cuff tears varies from person to person. Some rotator cuffs can be treated with nonsurgical methods. However, if surgery is necessary, feel confident that the skilled surgeons at The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery have the expertise to perform advanced surgery techniques, such as arthroscopic surgery, to ensure your smooth recovery and best outcome.
Foot & Ankle
Foot problems are most frequently caused by nerve damage, aging, poor blood circulation, diabetes, and infection that can result in ulcers or sores and deformities. Feet can also be susceptible to sports injuries, fractures, sprains and other traumatic injuries. The Board-Certified Trained Orthopedic Surgeons at The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery are proud to offer a wide range of treatments for common foot and ankle problems and also perform fracture repair, ankle replacement, and PRP Therapy. Our orthopedic surgeons have the highest skills and use the latest technology to replace ankle joints that are severely affected by arthritis or fracture with artificial implants that restore pain-free motion.
Diabetic Foot Care
If you have diabetes, it's extremely important to inspect your feet regularly and bring any problems or changes to your doctor's attention immediately. Diabetes can affect circulation and the delicate structures of the feet. Problems may range from skin wounds that won't heal, calluses and corns, numbness, pain, swelling, infection, and deformity. For people with diabetes, foot problems are better treated sooner or later.
Bones are the hardest tissues in your body. Although bones are strong, they can split or break under too much pressure or force. A broken bone is called a fracture. Fractures can occur in a variety of ways. The most common causes of fractures are injuries, prolonged stress from overuse, and bone weakening diseases, such as Osteoporosis or tumors. There are many types of fractures. They can range from a hairline crack to a bone that has broken into several pieces. Simple fractures may only require casting or splinting treatments. More complex fractures may need surgical intervention to align the bones for proper healing. Surgical options include procedures called an Open Reduction and Internal Fixation or an Open Reduction and External Fixation.
A physical or occupational therapy evaluation is the first step in the orthopaedic bone and joint rehabilitation process. The evaluation identifies areas of deficit, including strength, range of motion and functional abilities. An individualized treatment plan is established which will address areas of deficiency and will work to achieve the patient's own goals for treatment. Treatment plans may include: (Bullets) pain reduction/management through the use of modalities (fluidotherapy, electrical stimulation, ultrasound) and manual techniques, restoration of motion and strength through exercise, education, and functional training.
