ACL Tear

 

An ACL tear occurs when the ACL ligament connecting the femur and tibia becomes injured.  It is often painful and causes the knee to feel unstable.  An ACL tear most often occurs during athletics, but can also occur because of sudden stops, landing awkwardly, or trauma.  Most often the patient will experience a popping sound at the moment the ACL tear occurs. Surgery and rehabilitation are commonly required. 

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

 

This condition is a compression injury to the ulnar nerve near the elbow. This is the nerve that produces a jolt when you bump your "funny bone."

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

 

This condition is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside the body. This type of clot most commonly develops in the legs. This condition is dangerous, because the clot can break free and travel through the bloodstream to the lungs.

Elbow Bursitis

 

This condition is an inflammation of the olecranon bursa, a fluid-filled sac between the skin and bones on the back of the elbow. It can cause pain and restrict motion of the elbow. The bursa may also become infected.

Labral Tear of the Hip (Acetabular Labrum Tear)

 

If your hip joint hurts, or if it catches or clicks when you move your leg, you may have a torn labrum. That's a rim of tissue that surrounds the hip's socket. It helps to deepen the socket and cushion the joint. A torn labrum can keep the hip joint from working smoothly.

Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)

 

This condition, commonly called tennis elbow, is an inflammation of the tendons that connect the muscles of the forearm to the elbow. The pain is primarily felt at the lateral epicondyle, the bony bump on the outer side of the elbow.

Meet the Mako with Dr. Kingston

Dr. Colin Kingston gives an overview of the benefits of our new advanced joint replacement technology for both surgeon and patients. Then takes questions from those watching online! The Stryker Mako System transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy. Our Mako offers two assisted surgical systems, the total hip and total knee

Meniscus Tear

 

This is a common injury of the knee. Your knee joint is cushioned by two c-shaped wedges of cartilage called the "menisci." Each individual cushion is called a "meniscus." This injury is a tear of one of these cushions.
