Repetitive use injuries, tendon or nerve problems and broken bones can affect the proper function of your hands and the high demand you put on them.
Treating carpal tunnel syndrome and sports injuries to the hand, wrist and shoulder can be done through surgery, arthroscopy and joint replacement.
From a torn meniscus to sprained or torn ligaments to a fractured or dislocated bone, knee injuries can be debilitating and hamper an active lifestyle if not treated properly.
Arthroscopic repair, advanced orthopedic surgery or ligament reconstruction help athletes recover quickly and return to their sport. Knee replacements can relieve chronic pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or traumatic injury.
Fractured ankles, ruptures of the Achilles tendon or plantar fasciitis are just a few of the injuries and conditions of the foot and ankle.
Ignoring the warning signs or not seeking prompt medical attention could lead to longer lasting problems like arthritis.
Humans put a lot of stress of their bones, joints and muscles that lead to injuries and deterioration. Sometimes it can be instant, such as a fracture or pulled muscle. Sometimes the injuries happen over time as the joints wear down.
Updating technology to find new ways of helping people return to the lifestyle they value is our goal at St. Joseph Hospital. That’s why our orthopedics procedures are constantly evolving, including our affiliation with Lahey Health.
No one wants to be on the sidelines. Injuries that slow you down will eventually sideline you if you don’t treat them properly. St. Joseph Hospital helps you get back in the game and reach peak performance as quick as possible.
