Hip joint and knee joint replacements are helping people of all ages live pain- free, active lives. When only some of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to repair or replace just the damaged parts. When the entire joint is damaged, a total joint replacement is done. To replace a total hip or knee joint, a surgeon removes the diseased or damaged parts and inserts artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.

Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations. The most common treatment recommended for injury is rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE).
Your hands and wrists are comprised of more than two dozen small bones and a delicate network of ligaments, tendons, muscles, blood vessels and nerve endings. This complex anatomy makes them especially vulnerable to injury and arthritis and can present unique medical challenges. That’s why hand and wrist surgery is a very specific field of orthopaedics that requires advanced training. Our trained hand surgeons are well-qualified to treat all types of hand and wrist injuries and conditions.
