ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is a painful inflammation of the joints. There are many different types of arthritis each with its own specific symptoms.

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Arthroscopic knee surgery is a high-tech surgical procedure that is as minimally invasive as possible. It allows the surgeon to see and access the knee joint without having to create a major incision.

Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to compression of the median nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause both pain and motion issues in people. 

Fractures

A bone fracture is also known as a bone break. Essentially, a fracture refers to any break in bone continuity.

Herniated Disc

Disc herniation occurs when a spinal disc is damaged. When the disc is damaged, the inner contents begin leaking out.

Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty, is a surgery performed on severely damaged or diseased portions of the hip joint.

Joint Injections

Joint injections like Hyalgan are used for pain relief in osteoarthritis patients. This type of treatment can provide effective relief, even if other treatments have failed in the past.

Joint Pain

Just as the name implies, joint pain means pain in the body's joints. When the cartilage wears away over time or is displaced for any other reason, the joints can no longer move smoothly because the joint is directly in contact with other bone.

Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery will replace a heavily damaged joint with a custom-fitted new joint crafted from biocompatible metal and plastic.

Knee Surgery

Knee surgery may be needed for many different reasons. Torn ligaments within the knee, tendon injuries, fractures, meniscal tears, and the wearing away of cartilage are all common reasons that people may need knee surgery.

Orthopaedic Surgery

There are a number of different orthopaedic surgeries that are commonly performed. These include rotator cuff repair, joint replacement surgery, arthroscopic knee surgery, shoulder replacements, knee replacements, and much more.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff repair surgery is designed to repair a torn rotator cuff tendon.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder dislocation, shoulder sprain, tears in the rotator cuff, bone fractures, tendonitis, and osteoarthritis shoulder pain are all common.

Sports Injury

ACL tears, fractures, groin pulls, strained hamstrings, tennis elbow, and shin splints are just a few of the many common sports injuries that sports medicine specialists treat today.

Sports Medicine

A sports medicine doctor specializes in treating nearly any condition that is associated with sports or physical activity injury.

"All I can say is I had an amazing experience. The staff was very friendly explained all the processes I need to go through and really help me out. I didn’t have to wait long and the appointment didn’t take long all in all I would recommend this place to anybody."

David G.

"Dr. Wade is an extremely thorough and compassionate doctor. She takes her time with every patient to explain the diagnosis and treatment options. She gives handouts of information to take home so when you feel overwhelmed by all the information given, you have something to refer to. She thinks outside the box and makes sure to check all the possible boxes to reach a diagnosis. I recommend her to everyone!"

Megan D.

"I would like to thank everyone for their smiles and attitudes. They were great! The front desk so helpful as always. Thank you all."

Edward H.

"They have the BEST office staff and surgeons I have ever had, and I have had ALOT! I will be going back again to have my other knee replaced as soon as this one heals. So happy I found this doctors office, could not ask for any better care then they have given me already."

Jackie R.

"Everybody is courteous concerned educated and sticks to the task at hand. The therapists are always asking questions to evaluate your progress and to keep moving you forward .I look forward to the new exercises for me to do and the progress I make through my effort and time spent in physical therapy."

John S.

"Vanessa and Terry in occupational therapy, have been amazing to work with! They both are so respectful, professional and knowledgeable. By their words, and actions they make you feel as though your recovery is paramount. If you get to choose where to go for your O.T., go see Vanessa and Terry at First Choice Orthopaedics. Thanks Guys, you’re both rock stars! If I could rate higher than 5 stars it would be easily justified."

Tony M.

"100 percent the best medical place I’ve been. I didn’t wait more than 5 minutes to be called in. My PA is very knowledgeable and helpful. I received X-rays, an MRI, and diagnoses all in one day. Then I received a treatment plan the following week. 10/10. Couldn’t ask for a better visit."

Susan S.

"Dr Vliegenhart and Valerie are both amazing! They work so well together and have helped me tremendously with my back issues. Very professional and do everything they can to help you and find the best solution for the issues you have. I’m very grateful."

Nicole S.

"I have been going to First Choice Orthopaedics for about 7 years now and do highly recommend them. From the front desk to all nurses, doctors and all the other medical professionals are top in caring for their patients and the patients’ families."

Alan W.

"Very impressed. Dr Hamzavi listened, gave me good exam, explained what needed to be done, expected outcome & recovery. Professional & kind. "

Leah N.

"First Choice Orthopaedics is great. I first was referred to them for knee problems. They helped me get some relief but insisted if the pain came back for me to schedule an appointment and have an MRI. Knees are doing okay, but I injured a shoulder. I saw Dr. Hamzavi today. He was great. He explained what was wrong and scheduled a MRI. Really nice and friendly staff. I truly recommend their group."
