Open MRI Facilities

Open MRI has more room which is more comfortable and helpful in preventing feelings of claustrophobia.

MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a dynamic way for doctors to diagnose certain diseases. MRI doesn't rely on x-rays. Instead, it uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create a very clear picture of internal body structures. We are open Saturday's for your convenience.

Total Hip Replacement

The purpose of Total Hip Replacement Surgery is to remove the damaged and worn parts of the hip and replaces them with artificial parts, called prostheses, which will help make the hip strong, stable and flexible again. At surgery, an implant, selected by your doctor to fit your hip, will be affixed to the area between the femur and the pelvis. In most cases, the implant will consist of two pieces: a metal shaft with a ball at one end; and a metal or polyethylene cup. These will replace the socket and ball of the femur, and will form a new hip joint.

Total Knee

To understand the replacement procedure you need to know how the knee is constructed and how it works. The knee is the largest joint in the body and the ability to walk easily depends upon the intricate working of the knee joint where the thigh bone meets the shin bone. These bones are separated by cartilage which acts as a cushion and allows movement. In front of these bones, the knee cap glides in a groove and provides a round shield for protection. Much of the knee's stability and its principle movements of bending and straightening depends on muscles and ligaments.

Total Shoulder
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint that enables you to raise, twist and bend your arm. It also lets you move your arm forward, to the side and behind you. In a normal shoulder, the rounded end of the upper arm bone (head of the humerus) glides against the small dish-like socket (glenoid) in the shoulder blade (scapula). These joint surfaces are normally covered with smooth cartilage. They allow the shoulder to rotate through a greater range of motion than any other joint in the body.

Arthroscopic Shoulder

Tendonitis, bursitis, and impingement are a few of the reasons shoulder arthroscopy may be needed. Tendonitis is the inflammation of the tendons, the strong tissues that attachmuscle to bone. The shoulder has the bicep tendon (tendon of the upper arm) and the tendons of the rotator cuff (composed of the shoulder muscles). If the tendons are pinched by the bones of the shoulder, it can lead to an impingement syndrome.

Arthroscopic Knee

The most common reason for knee arthroscopy is a torn meniscus (or knee cartilage). The meniscus consists of on the bones of the knee joint. Your meniscus can tear if the joint is twisted and the bones pinches the cartilage.
