Orthopedic Surgery

We can perform limited types of orthopedic (bone) surgeries in our clinic. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to board-certified orthopedic surgeons to perform back surgery and other very complex surgeries.

Leg fractures are the most common orthopedic problem presented at our clinic and usually result from a mishap with an automobile. They can be treated in a variety of ways depending on the location and type of fracture. We can apply a cast to treat certain fractures; however, many fractures will require surgical intervention:

“Pinning” stabilizes the fracture by inserting a long stainless steel rod into the middle of the bone across the fractured area.

We can also perform femoral head ostectomy surgeries.

Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO) is a surgical procedure that removes the head and neck from the femur. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. It is a salvage procedure, reserved for condition where pain cannot be alleviated in any other way.

Please contact us if you have any questions about these procedures.
