Orthopedics

Orthopedic surgeons specialize in treating conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. They use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative disease, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Common orthopedic surgeries performed at Linden Surgical Center:

  • Rotator Cuff Repair
    The rotator cuffs helps keep the shoulder anchored in its socket as well as allow it to move properly in order to perform daily functions. When the rotator cuff is torn, the range of motion of the shoulder is very limited and pain during everyday activities is often a common symptom.There are three common techniques used to repair the rotator cuff.

  • Total Knee Replacement
  • ACL Reconstruction
    The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the major stabilizing ligament of the knee. When it is torn, it is nearly impossible to walk without the knee falling out of socket and causing more damage to the interior structures of the knee.The reconstructive procedure is done with a knee arthroscopy that allows the surgeon to perform the surgery by watching a video monitor through key size hole incisions. The tissue used to replace the damaged ACL comes from the patient’s own body or from a donor. The two most common places to take tissue from are the kneecap tendon or the hamstring tendon.
