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.

Anterior Cervical Fusion (ACF)

Anterior Cervical Fusion (ACF) is a procedure that stabilizes the back by grafting any number of the two to seven vertebrae together. This prevents motion and eases pain. The procedure is done from the front of the neck.

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.

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.

Cataract Surgery with ORA

The ORA System™ utilizes intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, similar to the technology that has made LASIK a customized, precise procedure.

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.

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a pain and weakness in the hand caused by pressure on the median nerve.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery can be used to treat a variety of sinus blockage problems. This procedure is used to treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain; and straighten a deviated septum, which can obstruct the sinuses.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain. Treatment can be for the neck region (cervical), middle back area (thoracic), or the lower back area (lumbar).

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.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

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

Glaucoma Surgery

While glaucoma is often treated with medicated eye drops, sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), a procedure that uses a low-level energy laser to target specific cells in the trabecular meshwork, the eye’s drainage channels.

Hemorrhoid Procedures

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.

Laser Trabeculoplasty

If you have open angle glaucoma and your eyesight is getting worse in spite of medication, your doctor may recommend laser trabeculoplasty as an initial surgical option. Laser trabeculoplasty uses a focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of your eye.

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is a fully customizable, precision care solution for restoring your clearest possible vision. This pre-planned outpatient procedure offers predictability and convenience.

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.

Lumbar Discectomy

A lumbar discectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of a herniated, or ruptured, disc which pads and separates the vertebrae in the lower back. This alleviates pressure placed on the nerve root.

Lumbar Laminectomy

Lumbar laminectomy is a procedure done to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. This procedure is done when back pain fails to improve with more conservative treatments. A laminectomy removes a section of the bony covering over the back of the spinal canal.

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.

Pain Stimulator Insertion (Spinal Cord Stimulation)

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system. These systems have either an internal or external source of power that sends an electrical pulse through a rubber antenna worn by the patient on top of the skin over an implanted receiver.

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

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 Sinus Surgery

Revision sinus surgery is used to straighten a deviated septum; treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; and create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain.

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.

Shockwave Therapy: Elbow and Heel

Shockwave therapy uses strong sound waves to induce “microtrauma” to tissues to relieve heel pain caused by plantar faciitis or elbow pain caused by tendinopathy, also called tennis elbow. The microtrauma initiates a healing response in the body.

Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is another way to treat patients with chronic sinusitis who have not responded well to medical therapies. This procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways.

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.

Spine Procedures

Trabeculectomy

Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove part of the trabeculum in the eye to reduce pressure caused by glaucoma. Trabeculectomy is used to treat open-angle glaucoma and chronic closed-angle glaucoma.

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.

YAG Laser Procedure

Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
