Minimally Invasive Surgery- Hip, Knee, and Shoulder

Through minimally invasive joint-replacement surgery on the hip, knee or shoulder, Dr. Chaplan and Dr. Gerbino can operate using smaller incisions and smaller instrumentation, causing less damage to the surrounding tissue and muscle. This can reduce post-operative pain and allow for faster recovery time.

Arthroscopic Surgery- Knee, Ankle, Shoulder, and Hip

This state-of-the-art procedure is used to visualize, diagnose, and treat joint problems. During the process the knee, ankle, shoulder or hip joint is operated on using a small fiber optic camera called an arthroscope.

Full-Patient Assessment

A full patient assessment is conducted to determine the correct treatment for all orthopedic problems. Individualized care can then be instituted; this includes all aspects of care from conservative to surgical. Our patients receive the entire spectrum of care, including a thorough examination, physical therapy, technique assessment, appropriate medications as needed.
