  • Femur Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

    Open reduction and internal fixation is a surgery used to treat a broken thigh bone. Orthopedic surgeons reposition the fractured bone pieces during surgery, so that they are back in their proper alignment, and physically reconnect the bones.

  • Fluoroscopy Procedure

    Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures. It’s much like an X-ray "movie" and is often done while a contrast dye moves through the part of the body being examined. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, allows healthcare providers to look at many body systems. These include the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

  • Hip Pinning

    A hip pinning is a type of surgery to fix a broken (fractured) hip. Another name for hip pinning is hip fracture repair and internal fixation. Hip pinning uses pins, screws, or plates to help hold broken bones together so they can heal correctly.

  • Hip Replacement Surgery

    Hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) is surgery to replace a worn out or damaged hip joint. The surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint (prosthesis). This surgery may be a choice after a hip fracture or for severe pain because of arthritis.

  • Hip Resurfacing

    Hip resurfacing is a type of surgery to replace a damaged hip joint. During hip resurfacing, your surgeon makes an incision to access your hip bone and thighbone. Next, he or she trims and caps your femoral head with a smooth metal covering. Your surgeon also removes the part of the damaged bone with the hip bone socket, replacing it with a metal shell.

  • Joint Aspiration

    Joint aspiration is a procedure to remove fluid from the space around a joint using a needle and syringe. It may be done to relieve swelling and/or to obtain fluid for analysis to diagnose a joint disorder and/or problem.

  • Knee Ligament Repair

    Ligaments surround a joint to give it support and limit its movement. A torn ligament severely limits knee movement. Surgery is a choice to repair a torn ligament if other treatment is not effective.

  • Knee Replacement Surgery

    When your knee is badly damaged by disease or injury, an artificial knee replacement may be considered. During knee replacement surgery, your joint surfaces are replaced by prostheses. These are plastic and metal parts that are used to replace your joint surfaces.

  • Kyphoplasty

    Kyphoplasty is a procedure used to treat fractures or breaks in the vertebrae. It involves injecting a cement-like material into the vertebra to make it more stable.
