Hip Replacements (Hip Surgery)

The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. This ball-and-socket joint -- the body's largest -- fits together in a way that allows for fluid movement. Despite its durability, the hip joint isn't indestructible. As we age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Bones in the hip can break during a fall or other injury. These any many other factors of these conditions can lead to hip pain. Elite Specialty Care performs minimally invasive hip treatments including surgeries. Most people who have hip replacements notice an improvement in their overall quality of life and mobility and are free from pain after their surgery. You can expect to have improvement in mobility as well. You may find it easier to move simply because there is less pain. But you will probably have a greater improvement if you take an active part in your recovery for example, by regularly doing the exercises recommended for you or seeking physical therapy post-surgery.

Elbow Surgery

Elite Specialists are leaders in orthopedic elbow surgery. The elbow is a joint made up of three bones, the humerus, radius and ulna. The humerus is the bone in the upper arm, and the radius and ulna make up the lower arm. The end of the humerus that connects into the elbow joint has two large bumps, which are called epicondyles.
There are many factors that can contribute to elbow pain such as overuse, repetitive movement, and sports injuries.
The most common orthopedic injury to the elbow is called lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is often caused by injury to the muscle in the forearm and typically involves extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendon. The ECRB tendon stabilizes the wrist when there is little to no bend in the elbow, for example when a tennis racquet is swung, which gives the common name of tennis elbow. The overuse and repetitiveness of this motion results in microtears in the ECRB tendon near the point that it attaches to the outside bump of the humerus, called the lateral epicondyle. These tears cause pain and inflammation in the elbow.
Symptoms of tennis elbow include weakened strength in the hand, or pain in the outer elbow. To diagnose tennis elbow, Elite Specialists will talk through all your symptoms and discuss factors in your everyday life that may have contributed to the injury. We can also provide referrals for tests and movements your doctor will have you perform to better determine the extent of the injury, as well as ordering an x-ray of the joint, MRI, and bone scan.
Depending on the extent of the injury and the patient’s activity level, treatment of the injury can range from surgery to non-surgical, which includes rest, anti-inflammatory medications, injections, and physical therapy.

Neck Surgery

Neck pain can come from several disorders and diseases and can involve any of the tissues in the neck. Our team of NJ neck injury specialists will provide testing to determine the root cause of your neck pain. Testing can include X-ray evaluation, CT scan, bone scan, and MRI scans. Not all causes of neck pain require surgery. However, there are some conditions where surgery may ultimately be the best option, especially if less invasive treatments were not effective. Injuries and degenerative changes can cause herniated disks and bone spurs to form in your neck. This can place pressure on your nerves or spinal cord, leading to symptoms like pain, numbness, or weakness.

Elite Neck Injury NJ

Common neck conditions that may require surgery include the following:

  • A pinched nerve (cervical radiculopathy): With this condition, excess pressure is placed on one of the nerve roots in your neck.
  • Spinal cord compression (cervical myelopathy):With this condition, the spinal cord becomes compressed or irritated. Some common causes include osteoarthritis, scoliosis, or an injury to the neck.
  • Broken neck (cervical fracture): This happens when one or more of the bones in your neck is broken

Some of the surgeries that Elite Specialty Care provides are cervical spine fusion, anterior cervical discectomy, and fusion, anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion, laminectomy, artificial disk replacement, posterior cervical laminoforaminitomy, and laminoplasty.

Shoulder Injury

A common cause of shoulder pain is soreness of the tendon (a cord that attaches a muscle to a bone) of the rotator cuff. This is the part of the shoulder that helps circular motion. Another common cause is soreness of the subacromial bursa (a sac of fluid under the highest part of the shoulder). You might experience soreness after lifting items, playing sports are during normal daily functions —anything that requires you to lift your arms. You may also not remember any specific injury, but you still feel pain in your shoulder. Our team of experts can perform diagnostic tests to determine the root cause of your pain.

Treatment

Activity Changes

Treatment generally involves rest, altering your activities, and physical therapy to help you improve shoulder strength and flexibility. Common sense solutions such as avoiding overexertion or overdoing activities in which you normally do not participate can help to prevent shoulder pain.

Medications

Your doctor may prescribe medication to reduce inflammation and pain. If medication is prescribed to relieve pain, it should be taken only as directed. Your doctor may also recommend injections of numbing medicines or steroids to relieve pain.

Surgery

Surgery may be required to resolve some shoulder problems. However, most patients with shoulder pain will respond to simple treatment methods such as altering activities, rest, exercise, and medication. Certain types of shoulder problems, such as recurring dislocations and some rotator cuff tears, may not benefit from exercise. In these cases, surgery may be recommended early. Surgery can involve arthroscopy to remove scar tissue or repair torn tissues, or traditional open procedures for larger reconstructions or shoulder replacement.
