  • Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement

    Total knee replacement is a type of surgery to replace a damaged knee joint. A minimally invasive surgery uses a smaller cut (incision) than a traditional total knee replacement.

  • Mitral Valve Replacement: Open

    An open mitral valve replacement is a surgery to replace a poorly working mitral valve with an artificial valve. The mitral valve, one of the heart’s four valves, helps blood flow through the heart and out to the body. The mitral valve lies between the left atrium and the left ventricle. Your doctor will replace your poorly working mitral valve with an artificial valve. This will ensure that blood can flow into the left ventricle and then flow out to the body normally, without putting extra stress on the heart. The surgery is called “open” because it uses a traditional larger incision to expose the heart. This incision is larger than the incision used in minimally invasive mitral valve replacement surgery.

  • Muscle Biopsy

    A muscle biopsy involves removing a small piece of tissue to diagnose disease. The tissue is usually removed using a needle.

  • Myelogram

    A myelogram is a diagnostic imaging test generally done by a radiologist. It uses a contrast dye and X-rays or computed tomography (CT) to look for problems in the spinal canal. Problems can develop in the spinal cord, nerve roots, and other tissues. This test is also called myelography.

  • Pavlik Harness Treatment for Children

    The Pavlik harness is a soft splint. It is most commonly used for treating infants with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). It helps keep the infant's hips and knees bent and the thighs spread apart. It can also help promote healing in babies with broken thighbones (femurs).

  • Posterior Tibialis Tendon Surgery

    Posterior tibialis tendon surgery is done to repair the tendon on the back of your calf that courses down the inside part of your ankle. Surgeons can do a few different types of surgery to repair this tendon.

  • Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

    A reverse total shoulder replacement is a special type of shoulder replacement surgery. It allows your surgeon to remove the damaged parts of the shoulder and replace them with artificial components.

  • Rotator Cuff Repair

    The rotator cuff is the muscles and tendons that hold the shoulder in place. The rotator cuff can become injured or wear down with age. If injured, the rotator cuff may need surgery to repair it.

  • Sympathetic Nerve Blocks for Pain

    This therapy targets the sympathetic nervous system, a series of nerves that spread out from your spine to your body to help control several body functions, including blood flow.

  • Tibia/Fibula Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

    Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken shin bone (tibia) or your fibula.
