Offering a Comprehensive Range of Private Surgical Options for your Musculoskeletal Concerns
The human body is remarkable, and it can function in ways far more complex than any machine. However, we rarely stop to appreciate what our bodies can do until something goes wrong.
In many cases, our body can heal itself with time and rehabilitation. Still, sometimes the damage is too significant, or age starts to slow the healing process. In these situations, timely surgery is essential.
The shoulder is one of the most complex and mobile joint complexes of the body. It is made up of three bones and three joints – the glenohumeral, acromioclavicular and scapulothoracic joints.
The glenohumeral joint is a ball and socket joint supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that support and move the joint with the help of tendons, tough bands of connective tissue that attach the muscles to the bones. The labrum forms a suction cup-like structure around the joint to provide stability. Further stability is provided by the ligaments that connect the bones.
Shoulder pain is a common problem that affects approximately 10 percent of the population at some point in their lives. Shoulder injuries can include both acute injuries and injuries that have a gradual onset relating to overuse and aging.
The hip is a ball and socket joint that is supported by several muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A variety of conditions can affect the hip. These conditions may be present at birth, could result from overuse and sporting injuries, or might be symptoms of aging.
The knee is a hinge joint composed of two bones, cartilage, the meniscus, and ligaments. The knee is a common site of acute and overuse joint injuries. It is the most common joint affected by osteoarthritis.
Being told you need spine surgery can be overwhelming news. We are able to offer minimally invasive spine surgery, including Single Level Disectomies (Microdisectomies) and Single Level Decompressions (Laminectomies).
A minimally invasive surgical option can help you have a quicker recovery with less post-operative pain and a faster return to full activities.
ELBOW, HAND AND WRIST
The elbow, wrist, and hand are essential for daily function and fine motor tasks. There are many muscles and tendons in this area that control these joints to allow us to do everyday tasks such as writing, typing, and grasping. These areas are vulnerable to injury, both traumatic and repetitive.
THE FOOT AND ANKLE
Some conditions in the foot and ankle are due to imperfect structures, such as the height of our arch or the shape of our toes. Other conditions may be due to traumatic injury or overuse. Improper footwear can also cause harm.
