Single Incision Carpal Tunnel

Release via Endoscope. This procedure allows the surgeon to make a single small incision at the wrist. With the help of a small camera, the procedure can be completed within minutes. The goal of the single incision endoscopic technique is to avoid an incision on the palmar surface of the hand. As compared with open release and the two-portal endoscopic technique for release of the carpal tunnel, this single incision technique permits the patient to return to work and activities of daily living earlier as a result of less tenderness and earlier return of strength.

Replacing a Damaged Hip Joint

You use your knee every time you take a step. Because of this, living with a worn or injured knee joint can be painful and frustrating. Even simple things, such as squatting to pick up the morning paper may cause pain. But you don’t have to live this way. In many cases, an Orthopaedic surgeon (a doctor who treats bone and joint problems) can replace all or part of the damaged knee joint.

Surgery Can Help
You may not have to live with knee pain for the rest of your life. Knee replacement surgery almost always reduces joint pain. During surgery, the damaged knee joint is replaced with an artificial implant (called a prosthesis). For many people, having a knee replacement means a return to pain-free movement.

Your Treatment Plan
Your surgeon uses the results of your exam and tests to form a treatment plan that’s right for you. Depending on your age, and the amount of damage to your knee, you may discuss replacing all or only part of the joint. Either way, the new prosthesis will provide a smooth surface for easier joint movement. Current implants last many years, so a knee replacement is likely to bring improved movement for years to come. You and Dr. Stratton can decide which implant is right for you.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Your shoulder hurts because tissues in the shoulder are swollen or damaged. This damage may have been caused by:

  • Repetitive movements, (ones that you do over and over) such as reaching, heavy lifting, or throwing.
  • A sudden injury, like a bad fall on your shoulder or arm.
  • Age, The older you get, the weaker the rotator cuff becomes. It can then be injured more easily.

When your rotator cuff is healthy, your shoulder lets you do a lot of things. This includes reaching, throwing, pushing, pulling, and lifting. A healthy shoulder feels strong and stable. It can move your arm up, down, around, across, and back as needed. When your rotator cuff is damaged, though, even simple movements can be painful.
