Hip & Knee Center
We are meant to walk, stand, run, kneel, climb and dance. All made possible by the incredible strength and free movement of our hips and knees. Unfortunately, these two major joints are particularly susceptible to injury, disease and degeneration. When pain and dysfunction of either the hip or knee take away some of your ability and life’s enjoyment, then the many advances in modern orthopedic practice are ready to help you regain your active lifestyle.
De Grooms and Dr Anderton both have the extensive training and experience to deliver State-of the-Art care for the Hip and Knee. Hip and knee surgical and non-surgical treatment options span both Sports Medicine and Joint Restoration/Replacement specialties.
Some of the common conditions that we treat include:
Hip & Knee
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Hip labral cartilage tears
- ACL tears
- Meniscus cartilage tears
- Posterolateral corner instability (Knee)
Non-surgical treatments include physical therapy, bracing, injection therapy, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and medications.
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Our surgeons can treat a wide variety of conditions in the knee without open surgery. Using very small puncture incisions, a surgical telescope is inserted into the knee and the image projected on a TV monitor. Though other small incisions special instruments are used to remove or repair torn cartilage, remove loose bodies or bone spurs, take out inflamed or diseased joint lining and even reconstruct major ligaments! This substantially decreases blood loss, scarring and recovery time.
Dr Anderton and Dr Grooms both have extensive experience and training to offer the latest techniques: the muscle-sparing and minimally invasive approaches for hip replacement include the superior approach (Dr Grooms), and the anterior approach (Dr Anderton). These newer approaches may result in less pain, less blood loss, faster return of function, shorter hospital stay and lower risk of dislocation after surgery. Most patients walk hundreds of feet the day of surgery and return home the following day or even the same day of surgery!
Total and Partial Knee Replacements
We offer the latest improvements including; the muscle-sparing approaches to the knee, the subvastus and midvastus approaches, the tourniquet-less knee replacement and gap balancing. These newer techniques may decrease pain after surgery, improve range of motion and stair-climbing, decrease bruising and allow faster return of muscle strength over traditional
knee replacement surgery.
