Procedures

ACL Repair

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction replaces the ACL with a new ligament. It may be recommended for unstable knees, general knee pain or for people who are no longer able to play sports or perform other activities due to an injury.

Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a procedure used to repair an injured joint and alleviate joint stiffness. This procedure is generally performed on smaller joints, such as elbow, ankle or shoulder, but it can also be performed on larger joints, including knee and hip. If the patient suffers from chronic knee or hip pain, total joint replacement may be performed.

Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid revision and lower eyelid revision, both known as blepharoplasty, reduce the drooping eyelid tissue. Overall, this improves the appearance of the eyelid and produces a rejuvenated and more alert appearance.

Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among people over 55.  Cataract Surgery is an effective procedure that can help restore a person’s vision.

Corneal Transplants

A corneal transplant is done to replace a diseased or scarred cornea with a new one. Of all tissue transplants, corneal transplants are the most successful, with over 40,000 performed in the United States each year.

DSAEK

Corneal specialists can isolate the diseased inner layer of the cornea and replace the layer through a process called Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK). If your inner corneal layer is swollen and not working properly, you may be a candidate for DSAEK.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.

Eyelid Surgery for Aging Eyes

Surgery is usually the best treatment for drooping eyelids. This specialized surgical procedure for dermatochalasis is called blepharoplasty, and is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who has special training in handling these delicate areas surrounding your eyes.

Glaucoma Laser Treatments

Laser surgery has become a desirable option as an intermediate glaucoma treatment between medications and traditional surgery and some doctors use it as an initial treatment prior to starting drops.

Glaucoma Medications

Medications, including eye drops and pills, are often prescribed as part of a glaucoma treatment plan. For glaucoma medication to be completely effective it must be taken exactly as directed by your doctor.

Glaucoma Procedures

Since damage to the optic nerve is irreversible, there is no cure for glaucoma. However, aggressive control of eye pressure can prevent further vision loss. Your doctor will go over what treatment options are available and make recommendations for which treatment or combinations of treatments are best for your specific condition.

Intraocular Lens

An intraocular lens, or IOL, is a clear, plastic lens inserted during cataract surgery that requires no care and becomes a permanent part of the eye.

Joint Arthroscopy: Knee, Shoulder and Ankle

Joint Arthroscopy is a procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems in the knee, shoulder and ankle. It can also be used to assess the results of a previous surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will examine and probably repair the problem with the help of an arthroscope, which is a small camera attached to a video monitor. 

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is a fully customizable, precision care solution for restoring your clearest possible vision. This pre-planned outpatient procedure offers predictability and convenience.

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

Through extensive clinical research and trials, doctors and researchers are constantly creating new and exciting treatment methods for glaucoma patients. These innovative procedures combine the newest technology, enhanced surgical methods and breakthrough drugs to normalize intraocular pressure and manage your glaucoma.

Oculoplastics & Reconstructive Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery refers to a wide variety of surgical procedures that treat the eyelids, tear ducts and the face.

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a surgery done to fix a bone using surgical plates, nails, screws or pins.

Orthopedic Procedures

Orthopedics involves the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, as well as the muscles that move them. A variety of procedures are offered on an outpatient basis to diagnose and treat many disorders associated with the skeletal system.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive lensectomy, also called refractive lens exchange, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness. By replacing the eye’s natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intraocular lens implant (IOLs), this procedure provides the correct power for the eye. It uses the same techniques of modern cataract surgery.

Repair of Fractures, Tendons, Nerves

Fracture, tendon or nerve surgery is performed to repair a complicated injury that cannot be fixed through other methods.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff repair is performed to fix a torn shoulder tendon or remove a bone spur. It can be performed with a large incision or with shoulder arthroscopy using many small incisions.

Traditional Glaucoma Surgical Treatments

When medicated eye drops and laser surgery do not remedy intraocular pressure (IOP), your doctor may recommend conventional glaucoma surgery.

Vitrectomy

A vitrectomy is one of the procedures used to repair a detached retina. This procedure removes portions of the vitreous. This is sometimes necessary when the vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye, blocks the surgeon’s view of the detached retina.

YAG Laser Procedure

Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
