你应该遭受骨科损伤吗, 肌肉骨骼疾病, or the degenerative effects of arthritis, ask your provider for a referral to our team of orthopaedic surgeons 和 physician assistants. We specialize in the following orthopaedic services 和 procedures:
- Cortisone Injections: knees, shoulders, 手, 肘s, ankles
- Fracture Care: reductions, splints, casts
- 全关节置换术: shoulders, hips, knees
- 关节镜手术: shoulder (rotator cuff repair, 上唇/胶囊修复, calcific tendonitis) 和 knee (meniscal repairs/excisions, ACL重建, 肌腱修复)
Total joint replacement generally is recommended for older individuals, but advanced ceramic 和 other implant technologies available at Olympic Medical now make artificial joints a good option for younger patients as well.
关节镜-小, minimally invasive incision — procedures for the shoulder, 肘, ankle 和 knee also are available at Olympic Medical. Advantages of such procedures include less post-operative pain 和 reduced scarring. 病人 undergoing arthroscopic procedures may experience a quicker return to activity compared to those who receive traditional, 开放手术.
Using a sophisticated computer navigation system, surgeons can precisely pinpoint where to make bone resections during a total joint replacement. 外科医生 also can create a custom cutting block for patients by entering information about a patient’s joint into a computer, which creates an image on a screen that surgeons use as a guide.
