Arthroscopy of Knees

Surgical procedure in which a small camera is used to examine tissues inside the knee joint.

Biceps Tenodesis Surgery

Surgeons create an opening in the humerus — through different methods based on the specific case — stitch a rolled up end of the bicep into place.

Cartilage Restoration

A procedure where a patient’s knee is resurfaced, realigned and stabilized thereby avoiding a joint replacement.

Fracture Repair (surgical and non surgical)

Immobilization of the bones through casting to allow them to heal and repair themselves. Open reduction, and internal fixation- this involves a surgery to repair the fracture-frequently, metal rods, screws or plates are used to repair the bone, and remain in place, under the skin, after the surgery.

 Labral Repair Surgery

A procedure used to reverse damage to the labrum, or cartilage, in the shoulder.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff most often involves re-attaching the tendon to the head of humerus (upper arm bone).

Shoulder Surgery

Often used to treat a frozen or dislocated shoulder, rotator cuff injuries, or a fracture of the shoulder blade (scapula).

Tendon Repair

One or more small incisions in the skin over the damaged tendon, wherein the torn ends of the tendons are sewn together. The area is then immobilized in splint or cast to allow the tendon to heal.
