La Mirada, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Healthpointe is now performing arthroscopy techniques on patients who have suffered from injuries or diseases affecting the elbow, wrist and hand. Healthpointe's team of physicians are located throughout Southern California, and are dedicated in providing the latest, most-effective medical procedures to treat conditions related to the upper extremities.
Dr. Jeffery Weil and Dr. Edwin M. Ashley are board-certified and fully trained in treating an array of conditions affecting the upper extremities, ranging from fractures, ganglion cysts, and carpal tunnel syndromes to severed fingers and other traumatic injuries. Both physicians also specialize in treating complex cases, including nerve compression such as Cubital Syndrome, degenerative arthritis of the hand and wrist, and provide management of tendon pathology such as Trigger Finger.
During an arthroscopic surgery, a surgeon inserts a narrow tube containing a fiber-optic video camera through a small incision — about the size of a buttonhole. With the camera, physicians like Dr. Weil and Dr. Ashley are better equipped to make delicate repairs on the complex structures of the elbow, hand and wrist – such as certain gangling cysts. Additionally, there are many advantages for undergoing minimally-invasive surgical procedures versus traditional open techniques. Such advantages include a swift return to daily activities and work, less soft tissue damage, improved function and less postoperative pain. Healthpointe also has an effective physical therapy program that can assist postoperative patients with a quick recovery.
Healthpointe’s services are offered during regular business hours: Monday-Friday 9-6. For all of your elbow, hand and wrist needs, call (844) 887-7882 or visit Healthpointe.net.
