We are committed to helping our patients find relief from their knee, hip, & shoulder pain using unique and customized treatment plans.
What is it?
The knee is composed of three bones, the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone) and the patella (knee cap). The ends of these bones that move about each other have a layer of cartilage, which forms the surface of the joint. In arthritis the cartilage layer is progressively destroyed by mechanical factors and inflammation.

What is it?
The hip is composed of two bones, the head of the femur (ball on top of thigh bone) and the acetabulum (socket) that is a portion of the pelvis. The ends of these bones that move about each other have a layer of cartilage, which forms the surface of the joint. In arthritis the cartilage layer is progressively destroyed by mechanical factors and inflammation.

Fracture treatment varies depending on severity, displacement and location. Some fractures will be best managed with immobilization like a cast or splint; however, some will require surgical intervention to better align the bone and place implants if needed.
Patients will usually experience pain and may sometimes hear an audible “snap” or “pop”. This may be accompanied by swelling and redness around the site of injury. If you suspect you have an injury, then seek care as soon as possible.
