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.
