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. Click on each procedure to find out more information, including an overview of each procedure, what to expect and how to prepare.

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. 

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.

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.

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.
