We're on the leading edge
of hip replacement techniques
NOW OPEN IN HERMANTOWN
We can take a minimally invasive approach to your hip replacement by doing a direct anterior hip replacement surgery. This type of surgery is done from the front of the hip, requiring a smaller incision and less tissue disturbance than a traditional hip replacement. Click here to read more about this procedure.
Orthopaedic surgeons can look inside the body using state-of-the-art 'joint' scopes and video equipment. These arthroscopic techniques are commonly used to diagnose and treat problems of large and small joints. Whether it is reconstruction of knee ligaments or visualizing other joints such as the wrist, elbow, or shoulder, the arthroscope is a valuable tool. Arthroscopic procedures are done through small surgical incisions, so post-operative recovery time is much shorter than with standard surgical procedures. This way, patients can return to normal work or sporting activities much sooner.
One of the body's most complex tools, the human hand, requires a very delicate surgical approach when treating fractures, arthritis, deformities or other disorders. And, since the hand is often the most widely used body part, proper rehabilitation is crucial.
We perform a variety of minimally invasive surgeries, particularly for hip and knee replacements. For many patients, these techniques result in faster recovery with less discomfort. No technique, however, is appropriate for every patient. You can trust us to provide you with the treatment options appropriate for your condition—nothing more, nothing less.
As people age, conditions such as rheumatoid or degenerative arthritis can rob them of maximum mobility. At Orthopaedic Associates, expert surgeons can manage these types of disorders and determine the best time, and the best type of surgical intervention including total joint replacement or more minor procedures.
Disorders involving the spine also involve the spinal system, and can therefore affect the body's nerves. Proper surgical or non-surgical techniques can be used to relieve this painful pressure, which is often caused by the breaking down of the spinal joints or the inflammation of the disks between each vertebrae.
Trauma is a part of our highly mechanized and fast-paced world. Orthopaedic Associates stands ready to aid anyone with musculoskeletal injuries. Using the latest technology, fracture and trauma care is rendered with the goal of rapid return to a productive lifestyle.
Whether caused by age, sports injury, trauma or illness, the pain from foot and ankle disorders can greatly limit a person’s ability to be active. This pain can be eliminated or significantly reduced through arthroscopy, arthrodesis, cartiledge repair and other techniques.
