OSM Surgical Services

At OSM, we are committed to providing you with quality orthopedic care.

We specialize in orthopedic surgery, which includes the care of bones and joints of the arms, legs, and spine, as well as muscle pulls and tendon injuries. Each of our physician specialists is Fellowship trained in a sub-specialty within the over-all orthopedic specialty.

The following is a list of some of the surgical services we provide:

ACL Reconstruction (CLOSE)

ACL Reconstruction is a surgery to replace the Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the knee joint. The Anterior Cruciate Ligament is an important stabilizer of the knee that needs to work correctly for you to participate in sports and many other vigorous activities. This ligament is most commonly damaged in sports injuries. Knee ligaments can also be damaged in automobile accidents, falls, or work injuries.

If the Anterior Cruciate Ligament is completely torn, the knee will become unstable – or loose – and this can make further aggressive activity difficult or impossible. It is also common for other portions of the knee to be damaged at the same time that the Anterior Cruciate Ligament is torn. The meniscus cartilages and articular cartilages, along with other knee ligaments, are frequently affected by sports injuries.

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament does not heal well after being torn in a severe injury. To restore stability and function to the knee joint, the Anterior Cruciate Ligament must be reconstructed, which means that it must be replaced. Artificial ligaments have not yet been successful, so the ligament is typically replaced using actual ligament or tendon tissue. This ligament or tendon can come from another portion of the same knee that is being repaired. Another option is to use a cadaver ligament. Typically, other injured structures such as torn meniscus cartilages can be addressed at the same time the Anterior Cruciate Ligament is reconstructed.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstructive surgery is a major procedure that requires arthroscopic surgery combined with open incisions. The exact method of reconstruction will depend on the patient’s individual circumstances that they discuss with their surgeon. Our patients are usually up and around walking within a few days after the procedure. Several months of physical therapy are then required before returning to sports or aggressive work activities.

If you have an Anterior Cruciate Ligament or other knee injury, you may call our offices to schedule an appointment to be evaluated. If you are already considering Anterior Cruciate Ligament surgery, you can see one of our orthopedic surgeons to discuss the procedure in detail. Arthritis Surgery

Arthritis Surgery (CLOSE)

Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offers both medical and surgical treatments for arthritis - a condition of irritation and inflammation of the joints. Many diseases can cause arthritis in various joints throughout the body. There are also many treatments available. Surgery for arthritis is typically recommended when the arthritis is very severe, and other treatments have failed. The most common operation for arthritis are done for arthritis of the knee. Surgery for knee arthritis can range from minor outpatient Arthroscopic Surgery up to major Knee Replacement Surgery. When arthritis of the Hip becomes severe, Hip Replacement may be the recommended treatment. Shoulder Replacement Surgery can also provide excellent pain relief for patients with severe arthritis.

Many other joints can be affected by arthritis ranging from the hands to the toes to the spine. A thorough evaluation of the problem can be done by the orthopedic surgeon to see if surgery might be recommendable.

Arthroscopic Surgery (CLOSE)

Arthroscopic Surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. A small camera and special instruments are inserted into a joint to allow the surgeon to treat any problems that are noted. Arthroscopic Surgery is used in many types of orthopedic procedures and is most commonly performed on the knee and the shoulder. Often, a portion of a major surgery is done arthroscopically, and then another portion may be done using open incisions.

Many different conditions can be helped by Arthroscopic Surgery. Performing surgery arthroscopically can result in less pain and a shorter recovery time in some instances. Our orthopedic surgeons can evaluate your condition and inform you if you may be a candidate.

Carpal Tunnel Surgery (CLOSE)

Carpal Tunnel Surgery or Carpal Tunnel Release, is a surgery done on the hand to relieve symptoms from carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. It often becomes noticeable as pain or numbness in the wrist, hand, fingers or forearm.

Typically, surgery is considered if the patient has been diagnosed and treated for carpal tunnel syndrome, but has not gotten adequate relief. Usually a patient that is a candidate for surgery will also have abnormal Electrodiagnostic Studies that show moderate or severe carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery is an outpatient procedure. A small incision is made at the base of the palm. The thick tissue that surrounds and pushes on the median nerve is split. This provides more space for the nerve and is usually very effective at relieving the symptoms. The patient cannot use the hand for strenuous activities for several weeks after the surgery.
