Restorative Surgical Procedures for Breaks & Tears
Repair Surgery: Providing You with the Right Fix
If you watch football, you may have noticed a recent increase in the number of ACL tears. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) exists to keep your shinbone in place. When this ligament tears, your knee is at risk of giving out during activity. During reconstruction surgery, tissue from your body or a donor is used to repair your damaged ACL. After your new ligament is attached to the bone, your body will fill in new bone tunnels to keep the ACL in place.
Meniscal Repair & Removal
One of the most common injuries, a meniscus tear can be caused by any activity that causes you to twist or rotate your knee. In some situations, ice and rest can be enough to allow your injury to heal on its own. Oftentimes, surgery is required to take care of the problem. If your meniscus injury is too severe for a repair, surgery may not help. For these cases, our physicians perform a complete removal of your damaged meniscal cartilage, leaving a clean a redefined meniscus.

Advanced Therapy to Heal Any Physical Pain
Advanced Therapy Techniques: A Specialized Solution
Every condition is different. If you don’t have a break or a sprain, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of your pain. For these situations, diagnostic ultrasound is a powerful tool. This technology has grown in popularity in recent years. It provides our therapists with a clear image of your injury or condition. We use it to perform an accurate diagnosis. In addition to serving as a clear diagnostic tool, ultrasound is used as a way to decrease inflammation. Because the technology creates sound waves throughout your body, heat is produced in your affected area. This heat generates blood flow to areas to speed up healing.
Tissue-based Stem Cell Therapy
As you age, your risk of osteoarthritis increases. This painful condition is caused by the breakdown of joint cartilage. Without this cartilage, your bones will begin to rub against each other, causing damage and pain. One of the most effective treatments for osteoarthritis is the use of intra-articular injections. These steroids are injected directly into the joint space, leading to reduced inflammation and pain. Treatment can also be used in tendons and ligaments in your joints.
