After trying several nonsurgical options and experiencing
temporary relief, you (with your doctor’s expert advice) may decide that
orthopaedic surgery is the right treatment to ease your joint pain and to care for
your musculoskeletal condition. Our
shared goal is to relieve your pain, enhance your ability to perform daily
activities and get you back to doing the things you enjoy like golfing,
fishing, walking, running, or simply playing with the grandchildren.
If joint pain is making you struggle to perform everyday activities and keeping you from the activities you enjoy, then orthopaedic surgery may be right for you. For certain conditions and injuries, orthopedic surgery is the best way to get you moving again.

Understand these common orthopaedic surgeries:
A hip replacement replaces damaged parts of your hip joint with new parts made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers.
Hip replacement options include:
- Total Hip Replacement is a procedure that removes part of the thigh bone, including the ball (head of the thigh bone) and replaces it with a new, smaller artificial ball.
- Resurfacing is often an option for younger patients. The damaged joint is repaired with a cap placed over the ball (top) of the thigh bone and a corresponding cup is mounted into the hip socket.
Our doctors use innovative procedures to replace damaged parts of your knee with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers.
Spinal surgery is a delicate process. It can require extensive entry to repair a curved spine or a minimal incision to repair a herniated disc.
Conditions of the spine that often require surgery include:
- Herniated or bulging disc
- Broken vertebrae
- Spinal fusion
- Deformity surgery (like correcting spine curvatures caused by scoliosis)
