Each orthopedist on our team specializes in a specific area of the body, so our clinic as a whole can provide comprehensive orthopedic care no matter what type of injury or condition you have. Those specialties include:
Hands and Upper Extremities
The specialists treating these areas can drain cysts, release a trigger finger, set fractures, repair nerve damage, provide relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, repair tendons, and perform amputations. They’re often also microvascular surgeons, using tiny instruments to repair the miniscule arteries and veins in the hands.
Podiatrists focus on the biomechanics of the feet and ankles. They treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, bunions, and arthritis. They can also reshape deformities, remove ingrown nails, debride dystrophic toenails and ulcers, excise tumors, surgically remove heel spurs, and correct hammertoe.
Feet and Ankles
We have doctors who specialize in treating conditions that affect the feet and ankles. These doctors splint, cast, and brace fractures, replace worn ankles, repair injuries, place external fixators, fuse ankles, and surgically repair Achilles tendons, flat feet, torn ligaments, and ruptured tendons.
Joint Replacement and Reconstruction
The surgeons in this specialty repair, reconstruct, and partially or fully replace many of the major and a few minor joints in the body, including hips, knees, elbows, shoulders, ankles, and finger joints.
Sports Medicine and Cartilage Restoration
Sports medicine doctors focus on injuries to the arms and legs that occur during sports and work activities or due to repetitive motion or age-related wear and tear. They repair rotator cuffs, repair or replace shoulder joints, and reconstruct acromioclavicular (AC) joints in the shoulder; addressbicep tendon and tennis elbow conditions; and replace knee joints, repair ACL, LCL, and PCL ligaments, remove, repair, or reconstruct cartilage, and realign the joints in the knee. These specialists can also repair the Achilles tendon, stabilize the peroneal tendon, reconstruct lateral ligaments, and reshape or repair the cartilage in the ankle.
