Cartilage Repair

Shoulder Cartilage Repair

Just as with other areas of cartilage in your body, the cartilage in your shoulder joint can become damaged and need repair. Wear and tear of shoulder cartilage is commonly found in shoulder arthritis. This arthritic development can occur from genetic osteoarthritis or shoulder injuries such as dislocations or overuse. In such cases, patients can trust our highly trained sports surgeons of Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for successful cartilage repair. We use modern techniques to relieve shoulder stiffness and pain caused by damaged cartilage. When initial treatments have failed, such as physical therapy or injections, we can recommend a conservative surgical option that will provide long-lasting recovery and help you regain an active lifestyle.

Cartilage Restoration Procedure

Many procedures for cartilage repair can be done arthroscopically, requiring small incisions and providing faster recovery time. Depending on the degree and specifics of your cartilage damage, our physicians can recommend the most effective surgical technique. For most patients, the goal is to remove damaged cartilage and stimulate new cartilage growth. The cartilage repair process is stimulated by perforating the exposed bone and releasing stem cells to the surface of the damaged joint. In situations where cartilage damage is too extensive, a grafting procedure or shoulder replacement may be necessary.

If you suffer from recurrent pain and limited range of motion in your shoulder, turn to Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Heat and Cold Therapy: Home Remedies

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
