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.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore vision. It’s usually done on an outpatient basis and only requires a short recover period. The surgeon generally completes the procedure in less than 10 minutes, and complications occur in less than one in 1,000 cases.

Corneal Transplants

A corneal transplant is done to replace a diseased or scarred cornea with a new one. Of all tissue transplants, corneal transplants are the most successful, with over 40,000 performed in the United States each year.

Cryotherapy

If you have been diagnosed with a retinal disorder, you may be a candidate for cryotherapy. Cryotherapy uses extremely low temperatures to seal the retina to the back wall of the eye by forming a scar. This scar, which takes approximately one week to heal, forms a bond which seals the retina around the retinal tear and prevents a detachment.

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.

Glaucoma Surgery

While glaucoma is often treated with medicated eye drops, sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), a procedure that uses a low-level energy laser to target specific cells in the trabecular meshwork, the eye’s drainage channels.

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.

Oculoplastics & Reconstructive Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery refers to a wide variety of surgical procedures that treat the eyelids, tear ducts and the face.

Orthopedic Procedures

Orthopedics involves the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, as well as the muscles that move them. A variety of procedures are offered on an outpatient basis to diagnose and treat many disorders associated with the skeletal system.

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.

Podiatry Procedures

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.

Scleral Buckling

Scleral buckling is one of the most common surgeries for repairing a retinal detachment. This method bends the wall of the eye inward so it meets the wall of the retina.

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.

Skin Graft

Skin grafting is a procedure that is used to reconstruct damaged skin tissue or temporarily cover a wound. A portion of skin is surgically removed from one part of the body, called the donor site, and transplanted to the damaged area.

Spine Procedures

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.

Trabeculectomy

Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove part of the trabeculum in the eye to reduce pressure caused by glaucoma. Trabeculectomy is used to treat open-angle glaucoma and chronic closed-angle glaucoma.

Vitrectomy

A vitrectomy is one of the procedures used to repair a detached retina. This procedure removes portions of the vitreous. This is sometimes necessary when the vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye, blocks the surgeon’s view of the detached retina.

YAG Laser Procedure

Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
