Our Procedures

ACL Repair

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction replaces the ACL with a new ligament. It may be recommended for unstable knees, general knee pain or for people who are no longer able to play sports or perform other activities due to an injury.

Anterior Cervical Fusion (ACF)

Anterior Cervical Fusion (ACF) is a procedure that stabilizes the back by grafting any number of the two to seven vertebrae together. This prevents motion and eases pain. The procedure is done from the front of the neck.

Arthrodesis

Arthrodesis is a surgical procedure performed to relieve arthritis pain. An alternative to joint replacement surgery, this procedure is also called joint fusion. It is typically performed on joints such as ankles, wrists or the spine. Arthrodesis is an option for those who severely suffer from arthritis and cannot manage pain through nonsurgical methods.

Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a procedure used to repair an injured joint and alleviate joint stiffness. This procedure is generally performed on smaller joints, such as elbow, ankle or shoulder, but it can also be performed on larger joints, including knee and hip. If the patient suffers from chronic knee or hip pain, total joint replacement may be performed.

Bunion/Hammer Toe Correction

Bunions are a deformity that cause the big toe to point toward the second toe. This causes a bump on the edge of the foot at the joint of the big toe. Hammer toe is another deformity of the second, third or fourth toes that cause them to bend down like a claw. Both conditions can be corrected through surgical procedures.

Colonoscopy

​A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine, also known as the colon. This exam is used to explore possible causes of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea and other intestinal problems. A colonoscopy is also used as a method of screening for colon cancer.

Dupuytren's Surgery

Dupuytren’s is a condition that thickens and tightens the tissue under the skin of the hands. A solid, raised knot develops in the connective tissue, mostly affecting the fingers on one or both hands. The causes of Dupuytren’s remain unknown, but it commonly occurs due to age, family history, diabetes and tobacco and alcohol use. If the condition is severe, surgery may be necessary to restore normal hand and finger movement.

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a pain and weakness in the hand caused by pressure on the median nerve.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery can be used to treat a variety of sinus blockage problems. This procedure is used to treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain; and straighten a deviated septum, which can obstruct the sinuses.

Endoscopy Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Gastroenterologists perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to diagnose and treat problems found in the ducts of the pancreas and gallbladder. Pancreatic ducts and bile ducts are tube structures that carry fluids in the digestive system to help break down food.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain. Treatment can be for the neck region (cervical), middle back area (thoracic), or the lower back area (lumbar).

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Ganglion Mass Excision

Ganglion masses are diagnosed by their shape, feel and location, but a certain diagnosis cannot be determined unless the mass is excised. The cause of a ganglion mass or cyst is unknown.

Hemorrhoid Banding

If your hemorrhoids are highly symptomatic (bleeding), your doctor may recommend hemorrhoid banding. Hemorrhoid banding is a non-surgical and non-invasive, in-office procedure.

Joint Arthroscopy: Knee, Shoulder and Ankle

Joint Arthroscopy is a procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems in the knee, shoulder and ankle. It can also be used to assess the results of a previous surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will examine and probably repair the problem with the help of an arthroscope, which is a small camera attached to a video monitor.

Ligament Repair

Ligament repair is performed when a ligament is torn or injured. A ligament is a tough but flexible band connects a joint, two bones or cartilages. If pain cannot be treated with rest, pain relievers or compression and prevents a patient from returning to normal activities, ligament repair surgery may be necessary.

Lumbar Discectomy

A lumbar discectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of a herniated, or ruptured, disc which pads and separates the vertebrae in the lower back. This alleviates pressure placed on the nerve root.

Lumbar Laminectomy

Lumbar laminectomy is a procedure done to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. This procedure is done when back pain fails to improve with more conservative treatments. A laminectomy removes a section of the bony covering over the back of the spinal canal.

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a surgery done to fix a bone using surgical plates, nails, screws or pins.

Pain Stimulator Insertion (Spinal Cord Stimulation)

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system. These systems have either an internal or external source of power that sends an electrical pulse through a rubber antenna worn by the patient on top of the skin over an implanted receiver.

Plantar Fasciotomy

Plantar fasciotomy is a surgical procedure that treats plantar fasciitis, sometimes called heel spurs. Plantar fasciotomy is a surgical procedure that treats plantar fasciitis, sometimes called heel spurs.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure treating dysplastic (precancerous) Barrett's esophagus.

Remicade (IV) Infusion

Remicade® (infliximab) is a treatment option for patients who suffer from inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, who have not responded to other drug therapies.

Repair of Fractures, Tendons, Nerves

Fracture, tendon or nerve surgery is performed to repair a complicated injury that cannot be fixed through other methods.

Revision of Fingertip Amputation

If the fingertip amputation is minor, a physician will likely apply a sterile dressing or splint to the area. If the injury is larger, a skin graft will be performed.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff repair is performed to fix a torn shoulder tendon or remove a bone spur. It can be performed with a large incision or with shoulder arthroscopy using many small incisions.

Shockwave Therapy: Elbow and Heel

Shockwave therapy uses strong sound waves to induce “microtrauma” to tissues to relieve heel pain caused by plantar faciitis or elbow pain caused by tendinopathy, also called tennis elbow. The microtrauma initiates a healing response in the body.

Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is another way to treat patients with chronic sinusitis who have not responded well to medical therapies. This procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways.

Skin Flap

Skin flaps are similar to skin grafts, but grafts do not have their own blood supply and rely on the growth of new blood vessels. Skin flaps are more reliable than grafts because they have their own blood supply.

Tenosynovectomy

Tenosynovectomy is a procedure performed to surgically excise the tendon sheath (a layer of membrane surrounding the tendon). Typically used to treat patients that have developed tenosynovitis, this procedure will reduce joint inflammation and pain if anti-inflammatory medications or compression aren’t successful.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.
