What do orthopedic surgeons specialize in?

Orthopedic surgeons focus on identifying and treating a wide range of disorders relating to the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves in your body. Some of the most common orthopedic procedures focus on sports medicine in addition to surgeries on your elbow, shoulder, spine, foot, and hand.

Minimally invasive procedures

Like many forms of modern medicine, orthopedic surgery has seen a wave of innovations in the last 20 years, allowing doctors to utilize minimally invasive procedures that cut down on recovery time and allow for better outcomes. Smaller, more precise incisions allow our team to more effectively provide you treatment, all while reducing the amount of time you for recovery.

 

The most common orthopedic surgeries we perform

While we provide a wide array of orthopedic surgeries, below you’ll find information about our most common procedures:

  • ACL Reconstruction: The Anterior Cruciate Ligament is one of the major ligaments in your knee, helping to provide stability when you rotate your legs. This is one of the most common sports medicine procedures, as many athletes can damage their ACLs while playing sports.
  • Knee Replacement: We provide both partial and total knee replacements at Floyd Valley Healthcare. A knee replacement means cartilage in your knee has been damaged. Knee replacements involve fixing the damaged portion of your knee joint, either with full removal or replacing only the damaged components.
  • Shoulder Replacement: With a shoulder replacement, your upper arm bone is replaced with a metal ball and the damaged portion of your socket is replaced with plastic prosthesis. The tendon and ligaments of your shoulder (called your rotator cuff) hold everything together.
  • Hip Replacement: Your thigh bone (femur) is attached to your hip bones (pelvis) via a ball and socket joint like your shoulder. When you get a hip replacement, both the ball and socket are replaced with metal and plastic components. For a partial hip replacement, only the damaged parts are replaced.

 

At Floyd Valley Healthcare, we provide many other forms of orthopedic surgery including joint fusion, ankle repair, shoulder and knee arthroscopy, and more.
