Our orthopaedic office consists of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons with expertise and years of experience in the management of General Orthopaedic Practice, Neck and Back Care, Fracture Treatment, Hand and Foot Problems, Arthritic Conditions, and Pediatric Orthopaedics. We are practicing orthopaedic specialists in the field of Total Joint Replacement and Reconstructive Surgery, and Sports Medicine and Surgery.
The procedures routinely performed include all phases of arthroscopic and open surgery including tendon and ligament reconstruction and meniscal repair. Complex fracture repair is also a specialty in our practice. We use customized Total Knee Replacement patient-specific templates (Visionaire) to create an exact fit for each individual patient. Aside from traditional Total Hip Replacement, Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty (BHR) is also performed on select patients.
Open Extremity MRI Scanning
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe, totally painless, non-invasive way to look inside the body. The pictures created during the exam look at the soft tissues as well as the bone and provide information that can improve the diagnosis.
MRI is a way of looking inside the body without x-rays. The exam uses a magnetic field to create images of the various tissues of the body. These images are then transferred onto an x-ray film for viewing and interpretation.
Most radiology offices and hospitals have traditional MRI scanners which utilize large magnets and therefore require the patient to be "inside" the machine. Newer models tend to be more "open" however, many patients still feel enclosed and often develop claustrophobia.
Using state-of-the-art technology with computer software enhancement, it is now possible to perform MRI scanning of the extremities while the patient sits in a comfortable chair with only the leg or arm inside the magnet. Our new Extremity MRI Scanner uses these advanced concepts, and is now available at our facility.
Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation
A fully equipped Physical Therapy facility is located within our office complex, staffed by licensed physical therapists, assistants, and a sports trainer. Whether the patient requires rehabilitation after arthroscopy or joint reconstruction, care for specific neck or back injuries, or therapeutic management of a fracture, a licensed and certified physical therapist supervises the care of all therapy patients, as well as managing patients with chronic pain conditions and disabilities.
At the core of physical therapy is exercise, though the nature of the exercise varies according to the diagnosis, patient capabilities, and goals of therapy. In addition to guiding you through an exercise program, the physical therapist may employ the use of massage, stretching, traction, hot and cold application, and other "modalities" particular to the field of physical therapy, such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation.
The proper rehabilitation program can help to reduce pain, improve strength and motion to the affected areas of the body, and facilitates the return to full activity including work and athletics. A specific exercise program may also help to improve cardiovascular conditioning and psychological well-being. The physical therapist will not only guide you through a program that is appropriate for you, but will also outline a program of exercises that can be performed at home.
Digital X-Ray Imaging
Electronic Medical Records
A number of unique services are available to allow our patients the convenience of complete orthopaedic evaluation and therapeutic intervention at one office. Advanced digital X-ray imaging using direct radiography produces images within seconds.
If a patient requires a cortisone or viscosuppliment injection (Synvisc), we can perform the procedure under ultrasound guided needle placement to better visualize the patient’s anatomy.
Incorporating electronic medical records and retrieval permits our staff to obtain current or past medical records rapidly, even if they are at another medical office or facility.
