Our Orthopedic Procedures
When a knee or hip joint wears out an orthopedic surgeon needs to surgically put a prosthetic hip, knee, or shoulder implant in the bone.
Anterior hip replacement
Called the Direct Anterior or “front’ approach, anterior hip replacement involves making an incision on the front of the hip rather than the side or back as traditionally done. As a result, the surgeon can follow the natural spaces between the hip joint’s muscles and tendons, resulting in less damage to these soft tissues.
A surgeon can make small incisions around a joint and surgically fix joint problems. This includes knees, hips, shoulders, wrists etc.
Hand and wrist surgery
Usually this surgery stems from fractures or arthritis. Additionally, Coliseum has Occupational Therapists that specialize in hand/wrist rehabilitation.
The spine is complex and multiple surgical procedures can be performed at our OR. Your medical condition may range from a herniated disc to a neck or spine fracture.
These surgical procedures are designed to get athletes back in the field as soon as possible. Multiple tendons and ligaments can be injured due to the repetition that is required in the field of sports.
