Fracture Care at Central Michigan Orthopaedics

Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed with a surgical device called an arthroscope (camera), which is approximately the size of a pencil. This procedure is the most commonly performed surgery in orthopaedics, and is the most frequently used to treat shoulder, knee and hip joints. Your surgeon is available to view the inside of the joint on a video monitor where he/she can inspect, remove, repair, or reconstruct damaged parts of a joint through several small incisions of approximately one-half inch. Arthroscopic procedures are most often performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return home the same day.

Joint Replacement at Central Michigan Orthopaedics

Hip, Knee & Shoulder Joint Replacement

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint. Hip and knee replacements are the most commonly performed joint replacements, but replacement surgery can be performed on other joints, as well, including the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow.

Fracture Care at Central Michigan Orthopaedics

Fracture Care

A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis. The word “Fracture” implies to broken bone. A bone may get fractured completely or partially and it is caused commonly from trauma due to fall, motor vehicle accident or sports. Thinning of the bone due to osteoporosis in the elderly can cause the bone to break easily. Overuse injuries are common cause of stress fractures in athletes.
