If you are among the many who live by the rule “no pain, no gain” and are coping with chronic soreness and pain in your knee (or shoulder or hip), it’s time to make a change. You can gain mobility and relief by calling South Nassau Communities Hospital.
Joint-replacement specialist Bradley Gerber, MD, South Nassau’s chief of total joint replacement, and orthopedic surgeons at South Nassau’s Center for Advanced Orthopedics and the Long Island Joint Replacement Institute (LIJRI) are using minimally invasive surgical techniques and technologies to repair common and serious musculoskeletal injuries.
The benefits of minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery include reduced post-operative pain; less scarring; less blood loss and a quicker recovery time after surgery; faster return to normal activities; and a shorter hospital stay. Most surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis.
In addition to total knee and hip replacement surgery, Dr. Gerber and LIJRI surgeons perform custom-fitted total joint replacements and partial joint replacement techniques, including Birmingham Hip resurfacing and the Uni-Knee partial knee replacement and image-guided knee replacement surgery.
Knee and shoulder injuries repaired at the Center include torn cartilage and anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, and medial collateral ligaments in the knee, as well as instability, impingement, rotator cuff or labrum tears, and recurrent dislocations in the shoulder.
Putting off pain can lead to complications that can then only be dealt with by open surgery. So don’t wait for your chronic pain to worsen; to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gerber or for more information about the Center for Advanced Orthopedics/LIJRI, call 1-877-SOUTHNA (877-768-8462). v
