For some, life's activities can put more than average stress on their joints. For others, it can simply be a matter of time or genetics before aches and pains begin to impact their daily routine. But whether it’s pain from an injury or just worn out hips, the physicians at Orthopaedic Associates can help find a solution to your hip joint problems. If you and your doctor decide surgery is the answer for your hip pain, Orthopaedic Associates offers two approaches – traditional hip replacement and direct anterior hip replacement.
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. Our surgeons and therapists will work together to create a care plan that will bring you back to your full range of living as soon as possible.
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.
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, cartilage repair, total ankle replacement, and other techniques. We now perform Big Toe Resurfacing and Joint Implant as an alternative to fusing the big toe.
