Orthopedic Extremity Surgical Procedures
Knee arthroscopy: This includes the latest in minimally invasive techniques to address injuries to articular cartilage, meniscus, and ligaments. Articular cartilage injuries can be improved by procedures such as chondroplasty, microfracture or osteochondral transplants. Meniscus injuries are evaluated and either repaired or resected depending on the type of tear. Anterior cruciate ligament injuries are addressed with ligament reconstruction using allograft (cadaver) or autograft (patient’s tissue).
Shoulder Arthroscopy: This minimally invasive procedure is used to repair issues such as shoulder instability, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff tears, and pathology to the long head of the biceps. We use the latest bioabsorbable implants so there is no permanent metal retained inside the patient’s bone. We also utilize the latest techniques in anesthesia to decrease post-operative pain which improves patient satisfaction and function.
