Orthopedic surgery

Specialized surgical solutions for your bone, joint and muscle problems

Our comprehensive care encompasses  diagnostic testing, reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation and treatment for an array of bone, joint and muscular conditions.

We perform the most-advanced procedures for repairing tendon, ligament and cartilage tears, damaged and diseased joints, compression fractures and a variety of other conditions. Our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive arthroscopic, or laser, surgeries — many of which can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Our orthopedic specialists concentrate their services in these treatment areas:

They can explore all surgical options with you, including joint resurfacing, partial joint replacement and osteotomy to realign the joint.

Total joint replacement is the most common and successful procedure for extensively damaged, diseased and painful joints, especially hips, knees, shoulders and elbows. Our specialists have an extraordinarily high success rate in total joint replacement — including challenging "revision" surgeries for patients whose initial prosthesis has loosened or weakened.

Following your surgery, we will manage your pain with the best techniques for your condition and we’ll see you through your recovery from surgery and your rehabilitation with caring therapists.
