Our orthopedic treatments

Our doctors develop a treatment plan personalized to your unique situation to allow for the best possible outcome. We offer many different kinds of treatments, including:

Nonsurgical treatments

When possible, your care team will recommend minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatments for your orthopedic condition.

These may include:

  • Bracing, booting, and casting to heal sprains, strains, and some closed fractures
  • Joint injections directly into the problem area to reduce pain
  • Medication management taken orally to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation to strengthen weakened muscles that are related to an orthopedic condition

Surgical treatments

If nonsurgical treatments prove to be ineffective, our expert surgeons are here to help. They are experienced and skilled in performing a wide range of procedures:

  • Arthroplasty and joint replacement / revision of the hip, knee, ankle, elbow, and shoulder
  • Carpal tunnel repair
  • Deformity correction (malunion)
  • Fracture care for adults and pediatrics
  • Limb salvage
  • Orthopedic trauma surgery
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Tendon repair
  • Trigger finger release

Minimally invasive surgical treatments

Our orthopedic surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques when possible, including percutaneous and minimally invasive techniques. Resulting in smaller incisions than traditional surgical methods, benefits include shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and less scarring.

One of the most advanced minimally invasive surgical methods is robot-assisted surgery to provide an enhanced view of the surgical site and increased precision for the surgeon.
