Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction replaces the ACL with a new ligament. It may be recommended for unstable knees, general knee pain or for people who are no longer able to play sports or perform other activities due to an injury.
Arthroplasty is a procedure used to repair an injured joint and alleviate joint stiffness. This procedure is generally performed on smaller joints, such as elbow, ankle or shoulder, but it can also be performed on larger joints, including knee and hip. If the patient suffers from chronic knee or hip pain, total joint replacement may be performed.

A corneal transplant is done to replace a diseased or scarred cornea with a new one. Of all tissue transplants, corneal transplants are the most successful, with over 40,000 performed in the United States each year.
Endoscopic sinus surgery can be used to treat a variety of sinus blockage problems. This procedure is used to treat sinusitis; remove polyps that are blocking the sinus cavity; enlarge holes that sinuses drain through; remove the walls between the sinuses to make them bigger; create new openings to make it easier for mucus to drain; and straighten a deviated septum, which can obstruct the sinuses.
An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.Learn More
Surgery is usually the best treatment for drooping eyelids. This specialized surgical procedure for dermatochalasis is called blepharoplasty, and is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who has special training in handling these delicate areas surrounding your eyes.
A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.
Since your gallbladder is an organ you can live without, many problems get better if your gallbladder is removed.
While glaucoma is often treated with medicated eye drops, sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), a procedure that uses a low-level energy laser to target specific cells in the trabecular meshwork, the eye’s drainage channels.
Hemorrhoids can be permanently treated on a non-surgical, outpatient basis in literally minutes.
Joint Arthroscopy is a procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems in the knee, shoulder and ankle. It can also be used to assess the results of a previous surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will examine and probably repair the problem with the help of an arthroscope, which is a small camera attached to a video monitor.
Ligament repair is performed when a ligament is torn or injured. A ligament is a tough but flexible band connects a joint, two bones or cartilages. If pain cannot be treated with rest, pain relievers or compression and prevents a patient from returning to normal activities, ligament repair surgery may be necessary.
Oculoplastic surgery refers to a wide variety of surgical procedures that treat the eyelids, tear ducts and the face.
Orthopedics involves the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, as well as the muscles that move them. A variety of procedures are offered on an outpatient basis to diagnose and treat many disorders associated with the skeletal system.

Podiatry focuses on the prevention, diagnoses and treatment of conditions associated with the foot and ankle.
Fracture, tendon or nerve surgery is performed to repair a complicated injury that cannot be fixed through other methods.
Rotator cuff repair is performed to fix a torn shoulder tendon or remove a bone spur. It can be performed with a large incision or with shoulder arthroscopy using many small incisions.
Balloon Sinuplasty is another way to treat patients with chronic sinusitis who have not responded well to medical therapies. This procedure uses a small, flexible balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways.
An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.
Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
