Treatments We Provide

Arthroscopic Surgery

A less invasive procedure, this surgery uses a small light tube with a video lens on the end. This allows your surgeon to see exactly where he or she is working inside the joint. The scope goes in through small incisions, reducing recovery time. 

Cartilage Transplant

This procedure removes healthy cartilage from one of your joints. The cartilage is then implanted into the damaged area. This procedure can postpone or help you avoid a total hip replacement.

Corticosteroid Joint Injection

Corticosteroids (such as prednisone) are a common form of steroid injection. Your doctor may use a combination of drugs for the injection.  Some injections are a one-time treatment, others are given in a series over a few weeks. Pain relief can last weeks to months, depending on the condition and severity.

Physical Therapy

Often physical therapy is part of your post-surgery recovery plan. However, physical therapy is used to prevent and relieve pain from many conditions, whether neurological or sports-related. Work with our physical therapists to restore strength and your healthy lifestyle.
