  • Orthopedic surgery — While we typically hope to treat orthopedic conditions with nonsurgical means, sometimes surgery may be necessary. We perform a variety of procedures, including joint replacements, carpal tunnel surgery and repair for degenerative discs.
Minimally invasive surgery

For many conditions, including orthopedic and oncological complications, we use minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. These leading-edge techniques allow our surgeons greater visibility for hard-to-reach areas.

Minimally invasive surgery uses a series of small incisions rather than one large incision. This type of surgery is effectively used for breast, colorectal, gynecological, kidney, skin and thyroid cancer procedures. Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include less pain, less blood loss, shorter recovery time and shorter hospital stays.
