The Orthopedic Surgeons at Crescent View Surgery Center treat conditions that range from bone and joint disorders and fractures to diseases or tears of the muscles, ligaments and tendons with advanced outpatient surgical techniques.
This surgical technique is used to diagnose and, in some cases, correct problems of the knee using an instrument called an arthroscope. The arthroscope, which has a tiny camera inside it, is inserted through a small incision and allows the surgeon to see inside the joint on a large monitor. The surgeon can then investigate problems within the joint and, if necessary, repair damage to areas such as the meniscus, patella, ligaments and other tissue using small instruments guided by the arthroscope.
Shoulder Arthroscopy is a procedure that allows orthopedic surgeons to inspect, diagnose, and, in many cases, repair problems inside the shoulder joint. An arthroscope, an instrument with a tiny camera on the end, is inserted through a small incision into the shoulder. The camera displays real-time images of the joint on a monitor. The surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments in order to repair damage to tendons, ligaments and bone.
Carpal Tunnel Surgery
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway in the wrist. The median nerve and tendons that allow movement in your fingers pass through the carpal tunnel. Swelling of the tissues within the tunnel can put pressure on the median nerve, causing tingling, numbness or functional limitations of the hand and fingers. In an effort to relieve pain and improve function, your surgeon may do a carpal tunnel release, during which the ligament that is pressing down on the carpal tunnel is cut to make room for the median nerve and tendons.
