Orthopedics includes surgical and nonsurgical solutions for congenital and acquired problems and deformities of the musculoskeletal system.
As a board-certified orthopedic and trauma surgeon, I offer various treatment approaches and surgical procedures.
Correction of limb deformities and limb-length discrepancies usually requires placement of external fixation devices or internal lengthening nails. Other deformities can be successfully treated with minimally invasive procedures, such as the Ponseti method for clubfoot treatment. Deformities and pathologic abnormalities around the hip joint often need plate fixation, with or without pelvic osteotomies, to optimize the coverage of the hip joint and prevent cartilage damage.
