At Dallas Orthopedic & Shoulder Institute, we address everyday disorders that affect the bones, joints, cartilage, muscles, ligaments and tendons. We handle the evaluation and management of degenerative diseases such as arthritis, care for fractures and complex joint replacement surgery. Our services are individualized to each patient’s needs.
Painful symptoms can be caused by a traumatic injury from an accident, sudden impact while playing sports, a fall, or strain to tendons and joints from repetitive work or sports activities. In older patients, as arthritis becomes more commonplace, pain may be prevalent simply with daily routine and activity.
Conservative care is always our first choice of treatment. We’re committed to working closely with you and your primary care physician to create the best treatment plan possible to fit your individual needs. Once we’ve diagnosed your condition, treatment plans may include: physical therapy, occupational therapy, injections and/or medications.
For those patients who require surgery, advancements in minimally invasive techniques are our practice’s specialty. Minimally invasive surgery means only tiny incisions are needed, along with the use of arthroscopes. This significantly reduces pain after surgery, shortens recovery time, and decreases scarring.
For joint replacements requiring open incisions, we use the newest techniques and technology to shorten recovery time, and get you back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.
