The first step in successfully eliminating joint pain is an accurate diagnosis. We are one of the first orthopedic programs in the area to offer the state-of-the-art 3T MRI scanner. It quickly provides clear images, meaning treatment can begin sooner. Armed with this information, our team can determine the most effective and least-invasive treatment option for you. We are experienced in treating a full range of injuries and conditions, including:
- Elbow Replacement
- Elbow Release
- Elbow Ligament Restructuring
- Tennis Elbow
- Bicep Rupture
- Fracture and Dislocations
- Nerve Compressions
- Repetitive Stress Disorders
- Trauma and Reconstruction
- Dupuytren's Contracture
- Ganglion Cysts
Progressive Treatment Options
Adventist Orthopedic Care offers some of the most progressive orthopedic procedures in the nation, including:
Elbow Arthroscopy - An injury or arthritis can damage the ends of the arm bones and cause bone spurs to develop. These spurs can be painful and make it hard to move the elbow. Our surgeons can remove the spurs by using specialized tools inserted into the joint through small incisions.
Elbow Replacement - Although elbow joint replacement is much less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain and returning people to the activities they enjoy. In total elbow replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the humerus and ulna are replaced with artificial components.
Elbow Release - Elbow contracture release surgery involves removing thickened scar tissue and decompressing surrounding nerves, allowing for the restoration of range of motion. The procedure can be done either arthroscopically or through a small incision, usually using a local anesthetic.
Tennis Elbow Repair - Although normally treated non-surgically, severe tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) may require surgery to remove inflamed tendons and reattaching healthy muscle to the bone. This is an outpatient procedure which can be done with open surgery or arthroscopic surgery.
Bicep Rupture Repair - In order to prevent permanent weakness in the arm, bicep tears must be repaired surgically. Using one or two small incisions, surgeons may reattach bicep tendons with stitches through holes drilled in the bone or with metal implants.
Nerve Repair - Damage to one of the three main nerves in the hand may result in decreased mobility and sensitivity. Nerve damage may be repaired immediately, or if injuries are more severe, up to several weeks after the initial damage. A severed nerve may be repaired by reattaching it directly to the other end of the nerve or by using a nerve graft to repair the damaged section.
Ganglion Excision - Ganglion cysts may require surgery if the cyst is painful, interferes with function or is not relieved by nonsurgical treatment. Ganglion excision involves removing the cyst and the associated joint capsule or tendon sheath. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis and normal activities can be resumed within 2 to 6 weeks.
Dupuytren’s Contracture Excision - There are several procedures available for removing or breaking up the contracted cords caused by Dupuytren’s Contracture to allow for improved range of motion in the hand. These techniques include surgical excision, needle aponeurotomy and collagenase enzyme injections.
