General Orthopedics

Living with bone and joint pain and complications is a real life struggle for many people just like you. With 206 bones in the human body and all the supporting ligaments, tendons, and muscles to support them, that leaves a lot of room for things to go wrong. 

Whether you have a problem that has plagued you for years or a sudden injury that needs immediate care, the medical staff at Advanced Orthopedics is here to help you sort through the problem and recommend a treatment plan that meets your needs.

As members of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, our training brings you the most current techniques available. Our areas of expertise include:

Shoulder and Elbow

There are a number of causes for shoulder and elbow pain, including arthritis and injury from trauma or fracture, repetitive motion, sports, or work-related activities.

At Advanced Orthopedics, we have specific expertise diagnosing and treating a broad spectrum of athletic, degenerative, and traumatic shoulder and elbow problems. Some of the most common shoulder and elbow conditions we see include:

Hand and Wrist

Because your hands are in constant motion, they are vulnerable to injury. Repetitive stress, or overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis are among the most common problems. Your hands and wrists can also be affected by normal wear and tear on the joints, resulting in arthritis or other generalized pain.

In addition, your hands offer a certain amount of protection to your body in case of a fall, which makes them susceptible to fractures and injuries that can result in damaged ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Due to the intricate anatomy of the hands and wrists, you need a doctor who has the training and experience in the delicate procedures required to relieve hand pain and preserve or restore normal function to the hands and wrists.

Some of the most common conditions treated by Advanced Orthopedics include:

Hip and Knee

As weight-bearing joints, your hips and knees are highly susceptible to arthritis and injury, including sports injuries and work-related injuries. Characterized by joint deterioration and limited movement, hip and knee injuries and conditions can be especially painful and difficult to live with. WE commonly see and treat:

Non-surgical treatment of hip and knee problems may include physical therapy and cortisone or viscosupplementation (knee only) injections.

Foot and Ankle

Your feet and ankles are complex, weight-bearing structures. Injuries, arthritis, or deformities in your feet or ankles can seriously affect your ability to function and enjoy life.

Foot problems are most frequently caused by nerve damage, aging, poor blood circulation, diabetes, and infection that can result in ulcers or sores and deformities. Your feet and ankles are also susceptible to arthritis, sports injuries, fractures, sprains, and other traumatic injuries.

Some of the most common foot and ankle disorders we treat include:

Arthroscopy

As a patient of Advanced Orthopedics, you will find that we make every effort to approach surgery conservatively. However, in the event that your condition requires a surgical procedure, Drs. Taba and Lue are skilled in a variety of arthroscopic techniques.

Requiring only small incisions and guided by a miniature viewing instrument or scope, arthroscopy helps to preserve surrounding tissues and joint structures so you heal faster and with less pain.

We specialize in arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee, and ankle.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a disease that causes joint pain, stiffness, immobility, and swelling. Arthritis is actually a term for a group of over 100 diseases that affect the musculoskeletal system, particularly the joints. Among them, osteoarthritis is by far the most common.

As one of the most commonly treated orthopedic complications, we strive to treat arthritis with a variety of treatment options and will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your needs.
