Orthopaedic Surgery

As an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Wainer uses both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital conditions. Some conditions respond well to non-surgical treatments such as exercise, therapy, medication, casts or splints, and orthotics.  Surgical orthopedic options may include knee and shoulder arthroscopy, ACL repair, knee replacement, hip replacement, repair of bone fractures, disc repair, spinal fusion, and carpal tunnel release.

Total Joint Replacement

Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for joint replacement. Osteoarthritis is caused by the wear and tear of aging. It causes the cartilage covering the joint surfaces to wear out, resulting in pain and stiffness. Total joint replacement will be considered if other treatment options will not relieve the pain and disability. In joint replacement surgery, Dr. Wainer will remove the arthritic or damaged joint and replace it with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis. This relieves pain and improves mobility.

Arthroscopy

In an arthroscopic examination, Dr. Wainer makes a small incision in the patient's skin and then inserts instruments that magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint. This lets Dr. Wainer see the cartilage and ligaments to determine the amount or type of injury and then repair or correct the problem, if necessary. Candidates for arthroscopy include patients with chronic inflammation, tendon tears, impingement syndrome, persistent pain, catching, giving way, loss of confidence in the joint, and recurrent dislocations.

Outpatient Knee Replacements

Recent advances in total knee replacement surgery have enabled Dr. Wainer to begin performing the surgeries on an outpatient basis.  For qualified patients this can mean going home on the same day as the surgery, with reduced post-operative pain, increased range of motion and overall improved outcome.

Oxford® Partial Knee Replacements

In a partial knee replacement, Dr. Wainer only replaces the damaged compartment of the knee with man-made materials. The healthy cartilage and bone in the rest of the knee is left alone.  Partial knee replacement offers several advantages over total knee replacement surgery.  Dr. Wainer can let you know if you are a potential candidate for an Oxford® Partial Knee Replacement.

Quad-Sparing Total Knee

The quadriceps-sparing, minimally invasive total knee replacement reduces post-operative discomfort by sparing the quadriceps muscle and tendon that are traditionally cut through during a normal total knee replacement surgery. A computer gives Dr. Wainer constant feedback during the procedure to provide the best possible outcome for the patient.
