Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
Huntington Beach orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rick Pospisil, now offers minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries. Joint diseases and injuries are common and often able to be treated noninvasively with conservative treatments such as physical therapy and medications, but surgery may occasionally be necessary. Dr. Pospisil uses minimally invasive procedures to restore health to joints that have been damaged by injury or degenerative joint disease such as osteoarthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.
Available minimally invasive procedures include:
- Arthroscopic knee reconstruction and repair
- Arthroscopic shoulder repair and reconstruction
- Total knee arthroplasty
- Total shoulder arthroplasty and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty
Dr. Pospisil also offers more conventional orthopedic treatments, including non surgical spine treatments, and treatments for foot injuries, wrist injuries, knee injuries, carpal tunnel injuries, and sports injuries. Braces, casting, pain management, and medication dispensing are available as needed. Most injuries and degenerative diseases are treated noninvasively, but for those that do require surgery, Dr. Pospisil is proud to offer minimally invasive procedures that allow patients to recover more quickly and easily.
“Patients that have difficulty using a particular joint or body part, suffer from pain that persists more than a few days, or have joint pain that worsens during rest should schedule to see Dr. Pospisil,” his team says, also encouraging patients to seek help if they have swelling, bruising, warmth, redness, inflammation, or visible deformity after an injury. “Early diagnosis and treatment can often prevent further complications in the future, and you can get back to doing the things you love sooner.”
