After a patient’s injury or condition has been diagnosed, we will discuss all treatment options. In the event that the severity of the condition and the patient’s individual situation meets the requirements for surgery, the patient will begin their surgical experience at Bellin Orthopedic Surgery Center, in the same building, with their OSMS surgeon.
A hip arthroscopy or “hip scope” is a surgical procedure in which the orthopedic surgeon uses a camera to visualize the internal structure of the hip joint. Through this minimally invasive scope, the surgeon can address multiple aspects of the hip joint. The labrum is the “cartilage cup” that the head of the femur bone sets in and provides stability and cushion. When the rim of this cup is damaged the orthopedic surgeon can work to repair that surface as well as prevent future issues.
Trigger finger is the narrowing around the tendons of a finger or thumb. This causes pain, stiffness and a feeling as if your finger is “locking” or “catching” when you bend and straighten it. Trigger finger release is a surgical procedure to open or release the “tunnel” or pulley the tendon travels through, allowing smooth transit.
