When you have orthopedic surgery, you want to feel at home with your new joint as quickly – and smoothly – as possible.
Improvements in anesthesia and surgical techniques have shortened recovery time for joint replacements. Patients typically leave the hospital within a day or two after surgery.
That means most of your recovery happens outside the hospital, usually at home.
Before surgery, we help you prepare for daily life after surgery to ensure your best recovery no matter how soon you leave the hospital.
Whether you’re a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or someone who just likes to keep active, you don’t want pain from an ACL or a meniscus tear to keep you out of the game.
Hand or wrist pain makes it hard to manage daily tasks.
Orthopedic surgeon Hans Bengtson, MD talks about carpal tunnel and trigger finger – the causes and treatment options for these two common conditions.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, caused by aging and sometimes by injury. When the protective cartilage between the bones of your joints wears down, it’s painful. It’s progressive. And it’s treatable. Orthopedic surgeon Hans Bengtson, MD talks about the causes of osteoarthritis, and options to treat it.
If your shoulder hurts when you swing a golf club or tennis racket – or even just reach for something on a high shelf – you may have injured your rotator cuff. Orthopedic surgeon Hans Bengtson, MD talks about what causes rotator cuff pain, who’s at risk (spoiler alert: painters and athletes), and options for treatment.
When millimeters matter, it helps to have a guide.
Orthopedic surgeon Hans Bengtson, MD uses 3D printing to get an exact model of his patient’s joint to guide accurate placement of implants during joint replacement surgery.
The metal 3D replica lets Dr. Bengtson see the precise location and angle of the initial pin that guides the rest of the surgery. The result: More accurate implant fit, shorter surgical time, less anesthesia, more predictable recovery and function, and longer implant life for the new joint.
It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Drs. Bob Shepley and Brad Wille met on their first day of medical school in 1980. They’ve worked side by side for the past 30 years, building a first-class orthopedic practice based in Northfield – with 25,000 surgeries and about 150,000 patient visits between them.
Now, they retire together.
Tenex is a one-time treatment for chronic tendon pain. Ultrasound pinpoints damaged tendon tissue; a microtip tool cuts and removes the damaged tissue without disturbing healthy tissue, allowing the tendon to heal. The procedure takes just minutes, with local anesthetic and no stitches required. Recovery takes about six to eight weeks.
Tenex can treat:
· Plantar fasciitis
· Achilles tendinosis
· Shoulder tendinosis
· Hip tendinosis
· Tennis elbow
