Hand and upper extremity care
The hands and upper extremities are essential for simple, everyday tasks, such as reaching for a high shelf or brushing your teeth. However, an injury or disorder of the hand, wrist, elbow or shoulder can make even the simplest task painful and difficult. If you are someone who experiences pain in any of these areas, our specialists are here to help. They offer a variety of hand and upper extremity services, including minimally invasive procedures, to help restore your range of motion and quality of life.
Each joint in your body is a complex structure made up of bones, cartilage and other tissues, allowing your joint to move smoothly and easily. When any part of the joint becomes damaged, however, it can be painful.
When you visit our orthopedic clinic for joint pain, our specialists will take time to determine the exact cause of the pain. This allows us to determine an effective joint care plan to resolve your pain.
Joint replacement surgery
When there is severe damage to a joint, a joint replacement surgery may be necessary. During this procedure, your orthopedic surgeon replaces any damaged areas of your joint with artificial (prosthetic) components. Your surgeon may perform a total or partial joint replacement, depending on how much of your joint is damaged.
Our orthopedic surgeons offer the following joint replacement procedures:
- Total and partial elbow replacements
- Total and partial hip replacements
- Total and partial knee replacements
- Total shoulder replacements
Robotic hip and knee replacements
For total hip, total knee and partial knee replacements, we are pleased to offer robot-assisted surgery. Using the robotic technology, your surgeon is able to precisely align and position the implants to your natural anatomy. This results in a more natural-feeling hip or knee joint.
Preoperative total joint replacement education
Before you undergo a total hip or total knee replacement, we provide preoperative education classes to help you learn what to expect before, during and after your procedure. Our goal is to give you the resources and information you need to actively participate in your care and promote a successful recovery after surgery.
Our spine doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating conditions of the neck, back and spine. To ensure you receive the type of spine care that is right for you, we offer both nonsurgical options, such as pain management, and surgical treatments.
If spine surgery is recommended as the most effective treatment option for you, we provide personalized care before, during and after your procedure. We also use minimally invasive surgical technology whenever possible, which allows for smaller incisions and faster recoveries.
One example of this is our use of robotic surgery during spinal fusions. The robotic system optimizes patient care by combining the benefits of navigation and robotic guidance into one technology. This translates to extremely precise procedures for our patients.
