Joint Replacement & Reconstruction
Our services offer clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the need of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort.
An integrated team approach to patient evaluation, monitoring, and management – both before and after surgery – helps us deliver consistently high clinical results and patient satisfaction levels.
Eight in 10 adults will experience a lifestyle-altering episode of back pain at some point in their lives. Ninety percent of those single episodes will reoccur.
Certain diseases and traumatic injury can cause back pain, with research showing the most common cause to be poor physical condition, poor posture, improper body mechanics, and the prolonged repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques.
Preventing and providing relief of back pain and spinal disorders is one of our specialties.
Increased physical activity is good news from a health and fitness perspective; however, injuries that occur related to athletic competition have become common among today’s active competition.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, we provide the same level of expert orthopaedic care to get you back in the game.
We also take a proactive role in preventing sports injuries by educating area athletes, coaches and parents on injury recognition and prevention.
Hand and Upper Extremity
This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes joints, bones, and muscles of the fingers, hands, wrists, arms, elbows and shoulders. Its mobile design, coupled with sustained use and frequent abuse, are factors that make this part of the human body very susceptible to injury.
Because of this, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of this area require a special skill set. . Our teams work together to diagnose and treat the problem so that the recovery process is as effective and efficient as possible.
Foot and Ankle
Mobility – we depend on our feet and ankles to deliver it.
But when foot and ankle problems prevent pain-free mobility, our specialists have the latest assessment tools, technology, and experience to get you moving again.
Our rehabilitation professionals’ goal of achieving optimal function for every patient is simple. That’s why restoring normal strength, motion and flexibility require a comprehensive program involving careful diagnosis and treatment by neurological and musculoskeletal system experts.
