Orthopedic Specialties

Orthopedic specialists care for a variety of diseases and injuries to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and related tissues. Using the latest surgical, arthroscopic, and radiology techniques, St. Mary's goal is to get people moving again by repairing, reconstructing, and relieving pain.

Here's a sampling of orthopedic specialties serving St. Mary's Hospital:

 

Arthroscopy

In this minimally invasive procedure, our surgeons diagnose and treat joint conditions by inserting small, fiber-optic instruments through a tiny incision.

 

Articular Knee Cartilage Repair

Surgeons remove a sample of the patient's healthy knee cartilage using arthroscopy. The cells are cultivated in the laboratory and later implanted to replace damaged knee cartilage.

 

Back & Neck Surgery

Using the latest techniques, our orthopedic back specialists can remove damaged disks, fuse vertebrae to stabilize a weak back, treat scoliosis, and perform other types of corrective, pain-relieving back and neck surgical and non-surgical procedures.

 

Foot Surgery

Orthopedic specialists commonly perform bunion removal, bone fusion, and bone spur removal.

 

Hand Surgery

St. Mary's orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand surgery repairs bone, muscle, tendon, and nerve damage suffered in injuries and overuse injuries, such as carpal tunnel.

 

Ligament Repair & Replacement

Our orthopedic specialists do knee and ankle ligament repair and reconstructive surgery.

 

Tendon Repair
