Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction replaces the ACL with a new ligament. It may be recommended for unstable knees, general knee pain or for people who are no longer able to play sports or perform other activities due to an injury.
Anterior Cervical Fusion (ACF) is a procedure that stabilizes the back by grafting any number of the two to seven vertebrae together. This prevents motion and eases pain.
Arthroplasty is a procedure used to repair an injured joint and alleviate joint stiffness. This procedure is generally performed on smaller joints, such as elbow, ankle or shoulder, but it can also be performed on larger joints, including knee and hip. If the patient suffers from chronic knee or hip pain, total joint replacement may be performed.
Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.
Bunions are a deformity that cause the big toe to point toward the second toe. This causes a bump on the edge of the foot at the joint of the big toe. Hammer toe is another deformity of the second, third or fourth toes that cause them to bend down like a claw. Both conditions can be corrected through surgical procedures.
Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among people over 55. Cataract Surgery is an effective procedure that can help restore a person’s vision.Learn More
Dupuytren’s is a condition that thickens and tightens the tissue under the skin of the hands. A solid, raised knot develops in the connective tissue, mostly affecting the fingers on one or both hands. The causes of Dupuytren’s remain unknown, but it commonly occurs due to age, family history, diabetes and tobacco and alcohol use. If the condition is severe, surgery may be necessary to restore normal hand and finger movement.
Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a pain and weakness in the hand caused by pressure on the median nerve.
Endoscopic sinus surgery can be used to treat a variety of sinus blockage problems. This procedure is used to treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain; and straighten a deviated septum, which can obstruct the sinuses.
An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.Learn More
Ganglion masses are diagnosed by their shape, feel and location, but a certain diagnosis cannot be determined unless the mass is excised. The cause of a ganglion mass or cyst is unknown.
An intraocular lens, or IOL, is a clear, plastic lens that becomes a permanent part of the eye and requires no care. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient.Learn More
Joint Arthroscopy is a procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems in the knee, shoulder and ankle. It can also be used to assess the results of a previous surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will examine and probably repair the problem with the help of an arthroscope, which is a small camera attached to a video monitor.
Ligament repair is performed when a ligament is torn or injured. A ligament is a tough but flexible band connects a joint, two bones or cartilages. If pain cannot be treated with rest, pain relievers or compression and prevents a patient from returning to normal activities, ligament repair surgery may be necessary.
A lumbar discectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of a herniated, or ruptured, disc which pads and separates the vertebrae in the lower back. This alleviates pressure placed on the nerve root.
Lumbar laminectomy is a procedure done to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. This procedure is done when back pain fails to improve with more conservative treatments. A laminectomy removes a section of the bony covering over the back of the spinal canal.
Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a surgery done to fix a bone using surgical plates, nails, screws or pins.
Orthopedics involves the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, as well as the muscles that move them. A variety of procedures are offered on an outpatient basis to diagnose and treat many disorders associated with the skeletal system.
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system.Learn More
Plantar fasciotomy is a surgical procedure that treats plantar fasciitis, sometimes called heel spurs. This is a condition that causes stabbing or burning heel pain when the tissue along the bottom of the foot — which connects the heel bone to the toes — becomes inflamed.Learn More
Podiatry focuses on the prevention, diagnoses and treatment of conditions associated with the foot and ankle.
Fracture, tendon or nerve surgery is performed to repair a complicated injury that cannot be fixed through other methods.
Rotator cuff repair is performed to fix a torn shoulder tendon or remove a bone spur. It can be performed with a large incision or with shoulder arthroscopy using many small incisions.
Balloon Sinuplasty is another way to treat patients with chronic sinusitis who have not responded well to medical therapies. This procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways.
Procedures for the spine help alleviate chronic back pain. Patients will be advised on which procedure is best for them.
A vitrectomy is one of the procedures used to repair a detached retina. This procedure removes portions of the vitreous. This is sometimes necessary when the vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye, blocks the surgeon’s view of the detached retina.
