Orthopedic Treatment For Common Problem Areas
Our orthopedic surgeons and physiatrists will fully assess your condition and recommend the right treatment plan to relieve your pain, from conservative interventional pain management to surgery.
Back and neck
Conditions related to arthritis and osteoarthritis; problems related to the vertebrae; slipped, degenerating or herniated discs; back pain or neck pain related to nerve damage, osteoporosis or spinal problems or abnormalities such as scoliosis or spinal stenosis; and back or neck problems from sports injuries.
Foot and ankle
Ankle and foot sprains, ankle and foot fractures, torn ankle ligaments; plantar fasciitis and heel spurs; Achilles ruptures, torn or injured Achilles tendons, tendonitis; tarsal tunnel syndrome due to a pinched nerve; pronation and supination; unusual conditions such as Lederhose’s Disease.
Hip and knee
Osteoarthritis causes cartilage and membrane of the joints to degenerate; rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the linings of the joints. Both lead to great pain, stiffness, mobility problems and joint deformity. ACES Premier Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine can help patients whose hips and knees are becoming painful and whose deteriorating condition is interfering with daily life. Other conditions of the hip and knee that we treat are damaged or torn cartilage (such as the menisci in the knee), tendonitis, bursitis in the hip/pelvic area, and muscle bruises and tears.
Shoulder and elbow
Shoulder tears in the shoulder joint or in the rotator cuff (common among athletes but they can happen to anyone); shoulder bursitis and shoulder fractures, including “floating” shoulder; dislocated shoulder or dislocated elbow; tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow; problems due to biceps tendon rupture and other bicep tendon conditions; surgical repair of certain types of elbow and forearm fractures; and radial and cubital tunnel syndrome, which affect the forearm area and nerves.
Hand and wrist
Athletes and those who enjoy sports often injure their fingers, hands and wrists through the repetitive motion of swinging, rotating, gripping or throwing. ACES Premier Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine sees many patients suffering: torn or sprained ligaments in the hand, thumb or wrist; injuries and fractures of the hand, wrist or fingers; dislocations of finger joints; tendonitis in the wrist or torn or hyperextended tendons in the fingers (“baseball finger”, “jersey finger”); other deformities of the tendons and fingers.
