Bone and Muscle Surgery at St. Luke’s

Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement with Navigation – During this procedure, the surgeon makes one or two small incisions to access the hip. Instead of having to cut through muscles, tendons and ligaments, these small incisions allow the surgeon to work between them. Computer navigation allows for precise placement of the artificial hip.

Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement With Navigation – During this procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions to access the knee. Computer navigation allows for precise placement of the artificial knee.

Shoulder Stabilization – A procedure to eliminate instability or “looseness,” and to restore comfort and function to a patient’s shoulder.

Ligament Reconstruction of the Knee – A procedure to repair a damaged knee ligament, such as the anterior cruciate ligament, and restore its stability. This procedure is done with an arthroscope, a thin, flexible scope guided into the joint.
