Orthopedic Care

Our Specialties

We help patients with a variety of symptoms and conditions.

Shoulders


The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the human body. With flexibility comes instability and susceptibility to injury. The shoulder allows you to rotate your arm in many positions in front, above, to the side, and behind your body. Depending on the nature of the problem, many methods of treatment can be recommended to minimize symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of shoulder problems can make a significant difference the chances of full recovery.

Knees


Your knee is the largest joint in your body and one of the most complex. The bones, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles work in harmony to produce movement. Articular cartilage is at the ends of the femur and tibia, and the back of the patella. Meniscal cartilage acts as "shock absorbers" between your femur and tibia. Different from articular cartilage, the meniscus is tough and rubbery to help cushion and stabilize the joint. The knee bones are connected to each other by ligaments. The four main ligaments in your knee act like strong ropes to hold the bones together and keep your knee stable.

Hips


Hip problems are becoming a more common as the population ages. According to AAOS, the number of cases is expected to become even more frequent. Replacing the hip joint with an implant or "prosthesis" relieves pain and improves mobility. However, total hip replacement isn’t the only way to address hip problems.

Ankles


Orthopaedic Associates specializes in caring for the ligaments, tendons, and bone of the ankle. The ankle joint allows up-and-down movement of the foot. The subtalar joint sits below the ankle joint, and allows side-to-side motion of the foot. Numerous ligaments surround the ankle and subtalar joints, binding the bones of the leg to each other and to those of the foot.

Neck


Your neck contains many vertebrates, blood vessels and nerves. Disorderes of the neck, which are common due to the amount of stress this body part recieves, are often the source of neck pain.

Back


Your spine is made up of three segments and these segments form three natural curves. The "c-shaped" curves of the neck (cervical spine) and the lower back (lumbar spine). As well as the "reverse c-shaped" curve of the chest (thoracic spine) also called kyphosis. These curves are important to balance and make it possible to stand upright. If any one of the curves becomes too large or small, it eventually causes the patient problems.
