Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF) removes a herniated or diseased disc and relieves neck and radiating arm pain caused by parts of the disc pressing on nerve roots.
Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure allows the surgeon to evaluate and treat injuries and disorders of the ligaments, cartilage, and bones of the wrist.
This non-operative, outpatient procedure is designed to provide relief for patients with arthritis of the hip joint. The technique allows the physician to inject numbing and anti-inflammatory medications with maximum accuracy.
Muscle Strain Injuries of the Hip are caused by stretching or tearing of fibers in one of the muscles at the hip joint. Hip strains may be mild, moderate or severe.
Degenerative joint disease or hip osteoarthritis is a wearing away of cartilage in the hip joint caused by arthritis, which can develop because of trauma, infection, age or autoimmune disorders.
A labrum tear can interfere with the normal motion of the hip joint. The labrum cushions the joint and provides a smooth surface for the head of the femur to glide within the socket.
Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the Hip occurs when a bone’s normal blood supply is disrupted. The affected bone cells die, and the dead bone weakens and may begin to fracture and collapse, leading to arthritis. It most commonly affects the head of the femur, but can also affect other bones in the body.
When the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) becomes torn or worn away, it causes pain and instability of the knee. ACL surgery replaces a damaged anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Knee arthroscopic surgery is used to diagnose and treat many ailments. This significant advance in joint care allows for a rapid return to improved activity.
Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is a painful inflammation of the iliotibial band, a thick, tendon-like portion of a muscle that travels from the hip down the outer side of the thigh to the knee. ITBS results in pain, aggravated by activity, that is usually felt on the outer side of the knee.
