Expertise From Head To Toe

The human musculoskeletal system serves as the framework for our bodies. It supports us, allows us to move and protects our vital organs. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out exactly what's causing a muscle ache or joint pain. Sore muscles, for example, could be caused by a hard workout routine — or they could be a sign of chronic pain, arthritis or other serious problem.

Our Specialties:

Advanced Imaging

Sometimes, even the subtlest of joint injuries is detectable before it becomes a major problem.

Foot & Ankle

Procedures can get to the source of the problem, relieving pain and restoring normal function to your foot.

Hand & Upper Extremity

How to deal with the consequences of everyday wear and tear on fingers, hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders”

Hip

When hip pain impacts your daily life and movement, it may be time to consider replacement surgery with our Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted technology.

Knee

Injury, excess weight, arthritis and other medical conditions can cause knee pain. We can help with physical therapy or surgery using our Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted technology.

Osteoporosis

You might not know you have osteoporosis until you break a bone after a fall or bump.

Shoulder

The leading causes of shoulder pain are bursitis, tendinitis and irritated rotator cuff.

Spine Care

The Globus Excelsius GPS surgical guidance system brings a greater level of precision to spine surgery

Sports Medicine

Treatment of injuries, and enhancement of athletic performance, for athletes of all skills and ages.

Total Replacements

A total joint replacement -- the knees, hips, ankles and shoulders -- is considered only when all pain-relief treatments are ruled out.

Joint Replacement Pre-Op Classes

Patients who plan to undergo Joint Replacement Surgery are expected by their orthopaedic surgeons to attend the Joint Academy Pre-Op Class.
