Arthroscopic surgery is one of the innovative areas of orthopedic surgery that has created new options for patients with joint pain, joint injuries, and early arthritis of the joint. This minimally invasive procedure maximizes joint preservation resulting in greater range of motion and enhanced mobility of the joint.
Advantages of Arthroscopic surgery include:
- Smaller incision
- Less scarring
- Less damage to surrounding tissue
- Faster recovery
- Can be performed as an outpatient procedure
Arthroscopy may not be recommended for all. A thorough examination of your individual condition and requirement of treatment are considered before suggesting arthroscopy.
Various arthroscopic surgeries include:
- Hip Arthroscopy
- Knee Arthroscopy
- Shoulder Arthroscopy
Joint Replacement & Reconstruction
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which the worn, damaged surfaces of the joint are removed and replaced with new artificial parts. Your doctor may consider joint replacement if you have severe pain that limits daily activities and is not relieved with medications, injections, physical therapy, or other treatments.
Ocean Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine specializes in surgical procedures ranging from fracture care to joint replacements. We provide a patient-centered and compassionate approach to help you return to a healthy and active lifestyle.
Not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. If your joint problems are interfering with the activities you enjoy, contact us today to find out if you may be a candidate for this potentially life-changing procedure.
Various joint replacement surgeries include:
- Hip Joint Replacement
- Knee Joint Replacement
- Shoulder Joint Replacement
Most sports activities and exercise can lead to injuries due to overuse, accidents, trauma, using ill-fitting and inappropriate equipment, poor training techniques or not warming-up properly before exercising. Some of the common sports injuries include sprains and strains in the muscles, ligaments or tendons, bone fractures and joint dislocation.
When you experience an injury during exercise or a sports activity, your doctor performs a thorough evaluation to accurately diagnose the problem. The first line of treatment is conservative treatment and may include protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation (PRICE) to relieve pain and inflammation. Other treatment options include pain medications, physiotherapy, immobilization, and surgery.
Some of the common sports injuries include:
- Shoulder Dislocation
- Hip Dislocation
- Ankle Fracture
- Hip Labral Tear
- Meniscal Tear
- Rotator Cuff Tear
Trauma & Fracture Repair
There are innumerable ways in which the many bones of the upper extremities (shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand) and lower extremities (foot, ankle, lower leg, knee, thigh, and hip) can sustain a fracture. Signs and symptoms of a fracture in the upper or lower extremities include:
- A clearly visible deformity in the bone or joint
- Mild-to-severe pain that is aggravated with movement
- Bruising, swelling, tenderness, and numbness at the location of the fracture
- Restricted range of motion of the extremity.
Fractures often heal with conservative treatment. This may involve immobilization of the fractured site in a cast, splint, and brace as well as the use of traction to bring the fractured ends back into alignment. In case of complicated and severe fractures that are resistant to healing, surgery may be necessary.
The most common fractures include
- Hip Fractures
- Pelvic Fractures
Knee & Leg
- Shinbone Fracture
- Pediatric Thighbone Fracture
- Thighbone (Femur) Fracture
Shoulder Arm & Elbow
