A Range of Sub-specialty Care
We provide high-quality general orthopedic care and specialized treatment in the following areas:
Partial Knee Replacement
MAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA). By selectively targeting the part of your knee damaged by OA, your surgeon can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. Click here for more information
Hip and Knee Replacement
When arthritis, knee or hip pain severely limits your ability to walk, work or perform even simple activities, knee or hip replacement may be considered. Of course, replacement is only recommended after careful diagnosis of your joint problem.
While surgery can be a first step in treating disabling joint pain, treatment is not complete without therapy and rehabilitation. We work closely with patients from initial consult through surgery and physical therapy. We strive to ensure every patient recovers to his or her full potential.
Lakewood offers comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for a wide range of sports-related injuries. We treat everyone from the seasoned professional athlete to the "weekend warrior."
Hand and Shoulder Surgery
From carpel tunnel syndrome to rotator cuff injuries, our orthopedists are dedicated to delivering specialized services for a wide range of hand and shoulder problems by using advanced treatments, surgery and/or rehabilitation.
Foot and Ankle Reconstruction
Orthopedic surgeons on staff perform complex foot and ankle procedures, many on an outpatient basis.
Orthopedists on staff are committed to advancing their knowledge and skills. Their continued involvement in education and research, along with our investment in advanced equipment, enables us to practice some of the latest therapies in sub-specialty orthopedics.
Non-surgical and Post-surgical Care
From diagnosis to surgery to rehabilitation, Lakewood Regional Medical Center provides a continuum of treatment and recovery services, including inpatient and outpatient care.
