Orthopedic treatments may alleviate joint pain and improve mobility. Time, overuse and injury may cause symptoms to reoccur and pain to increase.
The orthopedic surgical team at Surgery One performs a variety of orthopedic procedures to treat musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries and degenerative diseases.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Knee Repair
Orthopedic surgeons reconstruct the ACL by making small incisions in the knee and inserting surgical instruments through them using arthroscopic surgery. A graft, such as a piece of tendon from your kneecap, is used to replace the ligament.
Arthroscopy is a surgical orthopedic procedure that allows your doctor to look at the inside of your joint using an arthroscope. The scope gives the doctor a view of your joint, the cartilage, ligaments and the space in between the bones. It can also be used to repair a joint problem, such as removing loose or foreign bodies, or to monitor progress of the disease or how well a treatment is working.
This orthopedic procedure is most often performed on the knee, shoulder and ankle, however it can also be done on the hip, elbow and wrist.
Orthopedic treatments are available for hand problems including carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures and dislocations, osteoarthritis, tendinitis and disorders or injuries of your fingers or thumbs.
