Orthopedic diseases and injuries can take a significant toll on mobility as well as causing substantial pain and discomfort. At Beverly Oaks Surgery, patients benefit from one-on-one orthopedic consultation services aimed at diagnosing the cause of symptoms so treatment can be customized for each patient’s needs.
Orthopedic Consultation Q & A
Knee, shoulder, and hip arthroscopy
In arthroscopy, an arthroscope is inserted through a small incision near the affected knee, shoulder, or hip joint. A camera on the end of the scope captures images that are then sent to a monitor for viewing. A small amount of air or fluid may be pumped into the joint to make it easier to see the interior components. The procedure is used to treat some relatively minor causes of knee, shoulder, and hip pain.
Carpel tunnel release
During this minimally invasive surgical procedure, a small incision is made at the base of the palm of the hand. An instrument is inserted through the incision to cut the carpal ligament, releasing the pressure on the nerve and relieving the symptoms related to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is the injection of stem cells into an injured area to create new cells in the healthy tissue and to help repair tissues that are structurally damaged or injured.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is the injection of PRP into an injured area to increase the effectiveness and speed of the natural healing process. The platelets assist in the repair of the injury as well as attract stem cells to the area to aid in the healing process.
