Arthritis of the hip produces some of worst, deepest pain we can experience. Hip replacement surgery, termed arthroplasty, is among your doctor’s most commonly performed procedures. The modular, uncemented, ceramic, minimally invasive, non-muscle-cutting approach now becoming the industry standard. It has been wonderfully successful, for over two decades a safe and reliable cure for arthritic hip pain.
Your doctor utilizes minimally invasive unicompartmental knee replacement whenever possible for his patients whose knee arthritis requires surgery. This approach involves very little disruption of the tissues and ligaments within and around the knee—replacing only the worn, weight-bearing surfaces on the inner side of the knee. Called a “partial” knee replacement, this surgery enjoys great patient acceptance because it is relatively smaller and more comfortable than traditional knee replacement.
Your doctor has treated numerous cases of fractured bones and our practice is open to you if you or a member of your family has suffered an injury. If you have a broken bone, however, time is of the essence. A great result is most likely when the fracture is treated early. So call as soon as possible and let our staff know there is a fracture so we can arrange for urgent or emergent consultation and care.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is characterized by symptoms caused by compression of the median nerve travelling through the carpal tunnel. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects the hands since it is an upper limb neuropathy that results in motor and sensory disturbance of the median nerve.
A loose particle of bone or a torn meniscus produces the common symptoms of pain, clicking, locking and instability. Arthroscopic surgery, an incision smaller than a grain of rice, gets rid of those symptoms in less than half an hour.
I have been several times and have always been greeted by a cheerful, helpful staff. Dr. Wenkstern is very professional, truly cares and wants the best for each of his patients. He has a marvelous bedside manner and takes the time needed to get the job done...it was not a 7-11 rush you through type atmosphere. He is also a miracle worker - I love my new arthritis medicine:) It is always a joy to see everyone there! Thank You!!
