Anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, is a major ligament in the knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction. ACL reconstruction is the surgery needed to replace a torn ACL.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive option for diagnosing, monitoring and treating joint problems, allowing surgeons to operate through very small incisions with specialized tools. Our surgeons routinely perform arthroscopic surgery on knees, shoulders, and ankles, using the advanced technique whenever appropriate.

Hip replacements are a highly effective and efficient way to treat arthritis of the hip, either from wear and tear or from the effects of injury. Hip replacement has proven to be a quality way to alleviate pain and suffering, and to increase mobility and function, by replacing worn or damaged parts of your hip with prosthetic components.
Hip revision surgery is performed to repair an artificial hip joint that has been damaged over time. Many patients may find that hip revision surgery improves mobility, strength, and coordination of the torso and leg.
A joint injection is a shot of medication that goes directly into the joint. The medicine helps relieve pain and inflammation, and can sometimes help diagnose the source of pain. Some patients may need more than one injection--how long shots last vary from person to person, and depend on the cause of the pain.
If nonsurgical treatments like medication and walking supports are no longer helpful, total knee replacement surgery may be needed. Total knee replacements are one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine, using prosthetic components to replace the damaged bone and cartilage that are causing pain.

Over time, the components used in your total knee replacement surgery may need to be replaced.
