Burke and Bradley Orthopedics is a comprehensive sports medicine practice providing our patients with the most current and innovative approaches in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries. We specialize in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee, and hip. We also treat many general orthopedic problems including arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and fractures. We perform a wide range of surgical procedures from arthroscopic reconstruction and repair to total knee and shoulder replacements.
Knee arthroscopy is a surgery that uses a tiny camera to visualize and repair the tissues inside the knee joint. Disorders that we commonly treat with knee arthroscopy include ACL tears, meniscus tears, patellar instability, and knee cartilage injuries.
Knee replacement is surgery to replace the bones of the knee joint with metal and plastic parts. We perform partial (unicompartmental) and total knee replacements to treat knee arthritis.
Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgery that uses a tiny camera to visualize and repair the tissues inside the shoulder joint. Disorders that we commonly treat with shoulder arthroscopy include rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, and shoulder labral and biceps tears.
Shoulder replacement is surgery to replace the bones of the shoulder joint with metal and plastic parts. We perform partial (hemiarthroplasty), total, and reverse shoulder replacements to treat various arthritic conditions of the shoulder.
Hip arthroscopy is a surgery that uses a tiny camera to visualize and repair the tissues inside the hip joint. Disorders that we commonly treat with hip arthroscopy include femoroacetabular impingement and hip labral tears.
ELBOW REPAIR AND RECONSTRUCTION
Open and arthroscopic surgeries are used to repair tissues around the elbow joint. Elbow disorders that we commonly treat include ulnar collateral ligament tears, distal biceps tears, and tennis elbow (epicondylitis).
SPORTS MEDICINE INJURIES
Common sports medicine injuries include joint sprains, muscle injuries, stress fractures, and tendinitis. They may be managed nonsurgically with braces, injections, and physical therapy or, when appropriate, with surgical procedures.
Bone fractures or “breaks” may occur throughout the upper and lower extremity. They are managed with splints, casts, or surgery, depending on the fracture.
