Orthopedic medicine covers a wide range of injuries, from the relatively common (such as carpel tunnel syndrome) to the serious (spinal injuries). Other conditions treated with orthopedic medicine include joint injuries (such as ACL tears and sprains of the ankle and hip), stress fractures, and more. Because treatment options for these injuries are also dependent on a patient’s age, health, and lifestyle, it’s incredibly important to choose an orthopedic specialist who understands all the factors that go into treating these injuries. At the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence, our surgeons are the top in their fields, possessing a knowledge and an understanding of how to perfectly treat each injury on a patient-by-patient basis. Procedures performed by our orthopedic surgeons include:
- ACL reconstruction: A surgery that stabilizes the knee following an ACL tear
- Fracture repair: A procedure performed to repair fractures across various areas of the body.
- Hip arthroscopy: A less-invasive alternative to traditional hip surgery.
- Knee arthroscopy: Using tiny cameras, knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that’s used to repair the knee joint.
- Rotator cuff repair: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles in tendons in the shoulder. This procedure repairs the torn tendons in the shoulder.
- Shoulder arthroscopy: A minimally invasive orthopedic surgery that treats structural injuries of the shoulder joint.
- Hand surgery: The many hand surgeries performed at La Peer Health Systems include nerve repair, tendon repair, and nerve fractures, as well as treatment options for trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome.
In addition, La Peer Health Systems provides our doctors with the newest and most technologically-advanced equipment available. Enormous strides have been made in the development of artificial joints, prosthetics, and bone replacement materials in recent years, and our doctors have full access to these new and state-of-the-art procedures in orthopedic medicine.
These new treatment methods are not only good for our doctors, but they provide our patients with a level of comfort and expertise previously unheard of. Thanks to our orthopedic specialists and the technology they employ, patients experience less recovery time, less anesthesia administered, and less scarring from surgical procedures than ever before.

Q: What are some of the new technologies used by orthopedic surgeons at the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence?
A: One of the most exciting breakthroughs in recent years has been the development of arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed on the shoulder, hips, knees, and more. During arthroscopic surgery, our orthopedic specialists use a small flexible camera to evaluate the surgical area in patients. This camera transmits a video feed to monitors in the operation room, which provides surgeons with an unprecedented look inside the body of a patient. Arthroscopic surgery causes minimal damage to muscles and tissues, making it much more effective than traditional open surgery.
Arthroscopic surgery is just one example of the many new and exciting procedures being performed by the orthopedic specialists at the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence.
