We specialize in orthopedic surgery of the hand, wrist and elbow; sports medicine; shoulder replacement; hip replacement, preservation and arthroscopy; knee replacement and revision total joint surgery.

Hand

The hand has a variety of functions and plays a major role in most of our everyday lives. Problems concerning the hand include, but are not limited to, carpal tunnel, sports injuries, hand fractures, trigger finger, arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries and birth defects. If you are experiencing pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or elbow, you may want to consult a hand surgeon, though not all hand injuries require surgery.

Wrist

The anatomy of the wrist is complex and it affects many other parts of the body. Issues concerning the wrist include, but are not limited to, carpal tunnel, wrist pain, sports injuries, wrist fractures, arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, and birth defects. If you are experiencing pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or elbow, you may want to consult a hand surgeon, though not all wrist injuries require surgery.

The elbow is a hinge joint, connecting three main bones. Problems of the elbow include, but are not limited to, tennis elbow, arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, and birth defects. If you are experiencing pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or elbow, you may want to consult a hand surgeon, though not all elbow injuries require surgery.

Shoulder, Hip & Knee Replacement

Joint replacement involves removing the damaged portion of the shoulder, hip, or knee and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement. A greater variety of artificial joints have become available throughout the years and our team of doctors will work to help decide which option is the best for your individual needs.

Revision Total Joint Surgery

Revision total joint surgery is performed when a prosthesis has loosened, the bearing surfaces have worn, or a patient has sustained trauma in the region of initial treatment. The intricacy is often more complex than original joint replacement, which is why many doctors who perform joint replacement do not also perform revision total joint surgery. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort following a joint replacement, you may want to contact an orthopedic surgeon.

Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine focuses on the prevention and treatment of sports related injuries. The primary focuses are on acute injuries (ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries, and fractures), overuse injuries (rotator cuffs, forms of tendonitis, and stress fractures), and medical and injection therapies for osteoarthritis. If you are experiencing a sports related injury or any unnatural discomfort, you may want to consult a sports medicine specialist.

Hip Preservation and Arthroscopy

While hip disease and its treatment are commonly associated with aging, the truth is that many hip disorders begin much earlier in life. Relatively common variations in hip anatomy, including excess bone growth and malformed sockets, can lead to premature wear and tear, even in young adults. Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure performed through small incisions. The arthroscope is a small camera inserted into the joint that is used to guide other instruments. An arthroscopic approach can be used to correct the bony deformities, repair labral tears, and treat other cartilage damage that can be associated with impingement and dysplasia.
