Conditions

ACL Repair

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is a ligament in the middle of the knee that prevents the tibia (shin bone) from moving up on the femur (thigh bone). When this ligament tears it can cause the knee to give out.

Arthritis

Joint pain, stiffness or reduced mobility can be signs of arthritis. Most arthritis causes pain and swelling in the joints. Over time, swollen joints can become severely damaged.

Bunions

Poor-fitting, narrow shoes cause toes to be compressed and can lead to bunions, but patients can treat bunions by having them removed. 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome starts gradually with a slight aching in the wrist that can extend to the hand and forearm. Patients can treat carpal tunnel syndrome with a variety of procedures, including endoscopic carpel tunnel release surgery.

Cataracts

A cataract is a cloudiness of the normally transparent eye lens. If left untreated, it will decrease vision and can lead to blindness.

Epidural Steroid Injection

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.

Hammer Toes

Hammer toe usually affects the second toe, although it may also affect the other toes. The toe goes into a claw-like position.

Heel Spurs (Plantar Fasciitis)

Heel pain is extremely common and often begins without injury. Inflammation of the connective tissue on the sole of the foot (plantar fascia) where it attaches to the heel bone is the most common cause of pain. It is often associated with a bony protrusion (heel spur) seen on X-ray studies.

Orthopedic Injuries

If you break, sprain or otherwise injure a bone, the symptoms may not always be clear. The area may be bruised or swollen, even if at first glance it is unclear whether there is a fracture. Patients can also experience numbing, tingling or even paralysis below the fracture. Sprains can occur in any joint, and even though the joint continues to function normally, there should be some swelling, pain and tenderness.

Osteoporosis

Anyone can develop osteoporosis, which makes bones brittle and more likely to break, but it is more common in older women. This disease progresses silently, and, in fact, most people remain undiagnosed until a bone breaks.

Rotator Cuff Repair

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.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis occurs when the sinuses are infected or inflamed. The sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones surrounding the nose. The sinuses produce mucus, which drains into the nose. But if the nose is swollen, the sinuses can block and cause pain and infection.

Spine Injury

Back injuries can result from sports injuries, housework, gardening or a sudden jolt like you would have in a car accident. The lower back is the most common site of back injuries, which can include sprains and strains, herniated discs and a fractured vertebra.
