Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery

Achilles tendon repair surgery is a type of surgery to fix a damaged Achilles tendon. This is the strong, fibrous cord in the lower leg that connects the muscles of your calf to your heel. It’s the largest tendon in your body.

Amputation

An amputation is the surgical removal of a all or part of an arm or leg due to injury, infection, or injury.

Ankle Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken ankle.

Ankle Fusion

Ankle fusion is a type of surgery to fuse the bones of your ankle into one piece. It’s also known as ankle arthrodesis. The surgery is done to treat arthritis in the ankle.

Ankle Replacement Surgery

Ankle replacement surgery is the replacement of a damaged ankle joint with an artificial implant.

Arm Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken arm.

Arthrography

Arthrography is a type of imaging test used to look at a joint, such as the shoulder, knee, or hip. It may be done if standard X-rays do not show the needed details of the joint structure and function.

Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used.

Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat of conditions affecting joints. The doctor can directly view the internal structures of a joint using an instrument called an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a small, tube shaped instrument that is used to look inside a joint.

Bone Biopsy

A bone biopsy is a procedure performed to remove tissue or cells from the outer layers of bone for examination under a microscope.

Bone Density Test

A bone density test is used to measure the bone mineral content and density. It may be done using X-rays, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), or a special CT scan that uses computer software to determine bone density of the hip or spine.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones. During a bone graft, your surgeon inserts a new piece of bone in the place where a bone needs to heal or join. The cells inside the new bone can then seal themselves to the old bone.

Bone Marrow Biopsy

In the center of most large bones there is a soft tissue called bone marrow. Bone marrow makes most of the body's blood cells. A bone marrow biopsy involves removing tissue from the red bone marrow. The tissue is sent to the lab for microscopic exam. The biopsy is done using a small needle inserted into the bone.

Bone Scan

A bone scan is a radiology procedure used to look at the skeleton. It is done to find areas of physical and chemical changes in bone. A bone scan may also be used to see if treatment of certain conditions is working.

Bunion Surgery

Bunion surgery is done to reduce the pain and correct the deformity caused by a bunion. A bunion (hallux valgus) is an enlargement of the bone or tissue around a joint at the base of the big toe or at the base of the little toe.

Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel release is surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. During this surgery, the surgeon cuts through a ligament in the wrist to make more room for nerves and tendons to pass through. This can improve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Clavicle Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken collarbone (clavicle).

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Bones

Computed tomography is an imaging test that uses X-rays and a computer to make detailed images of the body. A CT scan shows details of the bones, muscles, fat, and organs.

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Spine

Computed tomography is an imaging test that uses X-rays and a computer to make detailed images of the body. A CT scan shows details of the bones, muscles, fat, and organs. CT scans are more detailed than standard X-rays.

Elbow Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken elbow.

Epidural Corticosteroid Injections

In the simplest of terms, an epidural corticosteroid (steroid) injection is a way to deliver pain medicine quickly into the body with a syringe.

Femur Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation

Open reduction and internal fixation is a surgery used to treat a broken thigh bone. Orthopedic surgeons reposition the fractured bone pieces during surgery, so that they are back in their proper alignment, and physically reconnect the bones.

Fluoroscopy Procedure

Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures. It’s much like an X-ray "movie" and is often done while a contrast dye moves through the part of the body being examined. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, allows doctors to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

Hip Pinning

A hip pinning is a type of surgery to fix a broken (fractured) hip. Another name for hip pinning is fracture repair and internal fixation. Hip pinning uses pins, screws, or plates to help hold broken bones together so they can heal correctly.

Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip replacement, also called total hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a worn out or damaged hip joint with a prosthesis (an artificial joint). This surgery may be an option after a hip fracture or for severe pain due to arthritis.
