Services

From traumatic injuries and degenerative diseases to sports medicine, we offer a wide range of services to give you immediate care and ongoing support.

Are you a candidate for orthopedic surgery?

You may benefit from orthopedic surgery if you are dealing with pain due to a traumatic injury or arthritis such as:

  • Osteoarthritis: Age-related deterioration of the cartilage between bones that causes bones to rub together and create pain and stiffness.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: When the body’s immune system attacks the membrane surrounding the joint, causing it to become inflamed and eventually wear away.
  • Post-Traumatic Arthritis: Severe and immediate damage to cartilage after a serious injury such as a fractured bone or a torn ligament.

Medication and physical therapy are often the first step in treating symptoms. If you have not found relief using these methods, you can get an orthopedic evaluation where your doctor will:

  • Discuss your medical history and symptoms
  • Test the range of motion, stability and strength of the affected area
  • Perform an X-ray and/or MRI to get an image of the affected area

Procedures

Optum’s board certified orthopedic surgeons use the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques to give you lasting relief from pain and a fast recovery.

Shoulder joint replacement

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. The ball-and-socket joint allows 360 degrees of motion and consists of three main parts – the upper arm, collarbone and shoulder blade. These three components work together with the help of cartilage and a lubricated membrane.

Shoulder replacement surgery replaces damaged tissue within this system to help alleviate pain and restore range-of-motion. We also perform reverse total shoulder replacement (for patients who do not have intact functioning rotator cuff tendons).

Hip joint replacement

The hip is constructed with six bones that work in tandem. The ball-and-socket joint allows an extensive range of motion that allows for comfortable sitting, standing, walking and bending.

A hip replacement surgery replaces damaged tendons with artificial parts that help relieve pain and improve function.

Knee joint replacement

The knee is one of the most highly-impacted joints in the body because it supports almost all of your weight. A functioning knee consists of a thigh bone, shin bone and kneecaps. Tendons ligaments and cartilage connect each of these bones to achieve a forward and backward motion.

A knee joint replacement surgery replaces damaged tissue with an artificial joint, helping to improve mobility and painful symptoms. We also perform partial knee replacement for patients whose arthritis only involves one part of the knee.

Medical care and help

We want to help relieve your pain and get you back up and moving with greater range of motion so you can enjoy doing the things you love.
