Our Procedures

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.

Arthrodesis

Arthrodesis is a surgical procedure performed to relieve arthritis pain. An alternative to joint replacement surgery, this procedure is also called joint fusion. It is typically performed on joints such as ankles, wrists or the spine. Arthrodesis is an option for those who severely suffer from arthritis and cannot manage pain through nonsurgical methods.

Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a procedure used to repair an injured joint and alleviate joint stiffness. This procedure is generally performed on smaller joints, such as elbow, ankle or shoulder, but it can also be performed on larger joints, including knee and hip. If the patient suffers from chronic knee or hip pain, total joint replacement may be performed.

Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.

Bravo pH Monitor

If you suffer from acid reflux, heartburn, chest pain and other symptoms of GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disorder), your doctor may suggest that you have a pH test to determine the degree of acidity or alkalinity of your esophagus.

Bunion/Hammer Toe Correction

Bunions are a deformity that cause the big toe to point toward the second toe. This causes a bump on the edge of the foot at the joint of the big toe. Hammer toe is another deformity of the second, third or fourth toes that cause them to bend down like a claw. Both conditions can be corrected through surgical procedures.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore vision. It’s usually done on an outpatient basis and only requires a short recover period. The surgeon generally completes the procedure in less than 10 minutes, and complications occur in less than one in 1,000 cases.

Colonoscopy

​A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine, also known as the colon. This exam is used to explore possible causes of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea and other intestinal problems. A colonoscopy is also used as a method of screening for colon cancer.

Dupuytren's Surgery

Dupuytren’s is a condition that thickens and tightens the tissue under the skin of the hands. A solid, raised knot develops in the connective tissue, mostly affecting the fingers on one or both hands. The causes of Dupuytren’s remain unknown, but it commonly occurs due to age, family history, diabetes and tobacco and alcohol use. If the condition is severe, surgery may be necessary to restore normal hand and finger movement.

Esophageal Dilation

Esophageal dilation provides relief from difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia, by carefully dilating or stretching the wall of the esophagus to allow food to pass.

Eyelid Surgery for Aging Eyes

Surgery is usually the best treatment for drooping eyelids. This specialized surgical procedure for dermatochalasis is called blepharoplasty, and is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who has special training in handling these delicate areas surrounding your eyes.

Fecal Transplant

Fecal microbiotica transplantation (FMT) involves transferring of healthy bacteria from a donor’s stool to your intestine to restore the proper balance of bacteria in your intestine so your immune system can be restored.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Ganglion Mass Excision

Ganglion masses are diagnosed by their shape, feel and location, but a certain diagnosis cannot be determined unless the mass is excised. The cause of a ganglion mass or cyst is unknown.

Hemorrhoid Banding

If your hemorrhoids are highly symptomatic (bleeding), your doctor may recommend hemorrhoid banding. Hemorrhoid banding is a non-surgical and non-invasive, in-office procedure.

Hemorrhoid Procedures

Implantable Contact Lenses

Implantable contact lenses (also called phakic intraocular lenses or IOLs) are a surgical option for correcting moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness). An alternate choice to LASK or PRK eye surgery, IOLs can produce better and more predictable vision outcomes than laser refractive surgery.

IOLs

​An IOL is a clear, plastic lens that requires no care and becomes a permanent part of the eye. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient. The three types of IOL are traditional, toric and multifocal.

iStent Glaucoma Surgery With Cataract Surgery

In 2012, the FDA approved a device called the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent System to treat symptoms of glaucoma. This is the first device that has been approved in conjunction with cataract surgery to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in adult patients with mild or moderate open-angle glaucoma and a cataract who are currently on IOP medication.

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.

Ligament Repair

Ligament repair is performed when a ligament is torn or injured. A ligament is a tough but flexible band connects a joint, two bones or cartilages. If pain cannot be treated with rest, pain relievers or compression and prevents a patient from returning to normal activities, ligament repair surgery may be necessary.

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.

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.

Plantar Fasciotomy

Plantar fasciotomy is a surgical procedure that treats plantar fasciitis, sometimes called heel spurs. Plantar fasciotomy is a surgical procedure that treats plantar fasciitis, sometimes called heel spurs.

Podiatry Procedures

Refractive Surgery

Refractive lensectomy, also called refractive lens exchange, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness. By replacing the eye’s natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intraocular lens implant (IOLs), this procedure provides the correct power for the eye. It uses the same techniques of modern cataract surgery.

Repair of Fractures, Tendons, Nerves

Fracture, tendon or nerve surgery is performed to repair a complicated injury that cannot be fixed through other methods.

Revision of Fingertip Amputation

If the fingertip amputation is minor, a physician will likely apply a sterile dressing or splint to the area. If the injury is larger, a skin graft will be performed.

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.

Skin Flap

Skin flaps are similar to skin grafts, but grafts do not have their own blood supply and rely on the growth of new blood vessels. Skin flaps are more reliable than grafts because they have their own blood supply.

Skin Graft

Skin grafting is a procedure that is used to reconstruct damaged skin tissue or temporarily cover a wound. A portion of skin is surgically removed from one part of the body, called the donor site, and transplanted to the damaged area.

Tenosynovectomy

Tenosynovectomy is a procedure performed to surgically excise the tendon sheath (a layer of membrane surrounding the tendon). Typically used to treat patients that have developed tenosynovitis, this procedure will reduce joint inflammation and pain if anti-inflammatory medications or compression aren’t successful.

Trigger Point Injections

​A trigger point injection is an outpatient procedure used to relieve pain by treating areas of muscle that contain trigger points (contracted knots of muscle that form when the muscles do not relax). Often these knots can be felt under the skin.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.

Vitrectomy

A vitrectomy is one of the procedures used to repair a detached retina. This procedure removes portions of the vitreous. This is sometimes necessary when the vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye, blocks the surgeon’s view of the detached retina.
