Minimally invasive procedures

Our specialists are experts in minimally invasive procedures, using the latest technology for joint replacement, spine and hand surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures offer shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.

Conditions we treat

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Torn ligaments
  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain and spine injuries
  • Hand, wrist, foot and ankle injuries
  • Total joint pain
  • Reconstruction and general orthopedics

We also treat common sports related injuries:

  • ACL sprains and tears: The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of four ligaments in the knee that connects and keeps the knee bones stable. The severity of an ACL injury may result in surgery to regain full function.
  • Ankle sprain: Ligaments that connect the ankle bones can often overstretch or tear, especially when the ankle is twisted inward. Injury to the ligaments can lead to bruising, swelling and be uncomfortable when putting weight on the joint.
  • Concussion: A common brain injury caused by the head hitting against an object or objects striking the head. Often the injury results in a temporary loss of brain function, unconsciousness, a bad headache or altered levels of alertness.
  • Muscle cramps: Most frequent in endurance athletes, muscle cramps and spasms are very painful and often occur during or after exercise. Treatment for muscle cramps can vary from person to person and may include stretching, massage, less intense exercise and increasing fluids, electrolytes, sodium or potassium.
  • Shin splints: Often occurs in runners and athletes who make frequent starts and stops, such as soccer and basketball players. Also known as Tibial Stress Syndrome, the ailment occurs when too much force is placed on the shinbone and tissues that connect muscles to the bone. Most cases can be treated with ice and rest and prevented with proper footwear and less intense or modified exercise.
