Orthopedic Doctor in Plano, TX
General Orthopedic Care
Living with joint pain or a soft tissue injury is a daily struggle for many people just like you. With 206 bones in the human body – plus all the supporting ligaments, tendons, and muscles – there is 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 will recommend a treatment plan that meets your needs.
As a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, you benefit from Dr. Taba’s training, which includes the most current surgical techniques available.
Our general orthopedic areas of expertise include:
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 joints. Among them, osteoarthritis is by far the most common – and osteoarthritis of the knee is a fairly common complaint.
There are a variety of treatment options available if you suffer from arthritis. We will work with you to create an arthritis treatment plan that fits your needs.
As a patient at Advanced Orthopedics, you will find that we make every effort to treat orthopedic conditions conservatively when possible. However, in the event that your condition requires a surgical procedure, Dr. Taba is skilled in a variety of arthroscopic techniques.
Arthroscopy requires only very small incisions and utilizes a miniature viewing instrument or scope. It helps to preserve nearby healthy tissue, so you heal faster and with less pain and scarring.
We specialize in arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee, 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:
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 your 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 hand and wrist conditions treated at Advanced Orthopedics include:
