Conditions we treat

Come see us for any of the following:

Procedures we perform

We offer surgical and minimally invasive procedures for joint reconstruction or replacement; and for injury of shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, feet and ankles in addition to spine.

Common procedures we perform include:

  • Spine surgeries and procedures
    • Cervical disc replacement.
    • Cervical fusion.
    • Lumbar disc replacement.
    • Minimally-invasive spine surgery.
    • Revision spine surgery.
    • Spine fracture care.
    • Spine tumors.
    • Thoracic and lumbar fusion.

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS)

If you need a knee or hip replacement, there’s good news: with the enhanced recovery after surgery program, patients feel better faster after a joint replacement.

The goal of our ERAS program is to get people back to being active as quickly as we can. Joint replacement traditionally required a hospital stay of three to seven days. But now, with our ERAS program, we can get patients walking and home the same day of surgery.
