Orthopedics

Orthopedic physicians are doctors who are focused on helping you live a comfortable, physically active life. Their specialty is the musculoskeletal system, the complex structure of bones, joints, muscles, and tendons that allows you to sit, stand, walk and perform the activities of daily life.

Sports Medicine

Treating athletes of all ages, youth to weekend warriors to elite athletes, sports medicine specialists perform injury evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine the best overall plan of care for a patient who has been hurt. The goal is to allow you to recover, heal and return to the activities you enjoy.

We offer a wide range of treatment options for everything from a sprained ankle to an ACL tear—from preventive and nonsurgical to state-of-the-art arthroscopic and more traditional surgical procedures.

Hand and Upper Extremity

Whether your discomfort results from arthritis, a bad fall, a sports injury, a repetitive motion condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome, any such injury is debilitating and painful. Our orthopedic specialists diagnose the root cause of your discomfort and recommend a plan of treatment to help restore normal function as quickly as possible.

Hand, Wrist, Shoulder and Elbow

We treat the full range of conditions, including:

Individualized Treatment for Every Patient

Depending on your particular symptoms, your treatment plan may involve any combination of medications, injections, therapy, or surgery. If a procedure is necessary, you can feel confident that our highly trained surgeons use the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques. More than likely, you will be treated on an outpatient basis, and can return home without a hospital stay.

We treat the whole person, not just the problem area. Our goal is to help restore maximum function lost through injury, illness or disabling conditions. We can develop a plan for prevention of pain as well as treatment. A customized treatment plan may include:

  • Medications
  • Braces/orthotics
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Injections into muscles, bursae & joints
  • Interventional procedures, including epidural & facet joint (spinal) injections
  • Occupational/Physical therapy
  • Psychology
