PAINFUL HIPS, KNEES, SHOULDERS?

There are many non operative options that help reduce pain and maintain joint mobility and function. Using the latest diagnostic and imaging tools, our doctors can prescribe a treatment course that helps alleviate the pain and discomfort of a degenerating joint.  Treatment can be as simple as over the counter drugs and rehabilitation or can utilize braces, prescription medicines, injections with steroids or cartilage regenerating drugs.  Our doctors are also adept at identifying those who would benefit from regenerative therapies now on the market.  These specialized treatments make use of your own infection fighting cells to aid your body in healing  difficult problems such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, patellar tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis and may avoid the need for surgery. These procedures are available in the office with no significant down time.

If your evaluation indicates your best course of action is surgery, our orthopaedic surgeon is experienced in the latest techniques of joint replacement.  Having privileges at several facilities with different levels of care allows  options for appropriate care for the medically simple or complex patient.

Our physicians will strive to answer your questions and prepare you to their fullest ability for surgery and recovery.
