Hip & Pelvis
Injury, overuse, and normal wear can all cause a variety of symptoms in the hip and pelvis area.

Dr. John Hoffman, our hip specialist, can help you find the best treatment for your specific hip and pelvis concerns, often utilizing minimally-invasive options for less downtime.
The knee is especially prone to injury, due to the significant force applied when playing sports. It can also develop problems from wear or overuse, which can create the need for surgical intervention.

By doing so, you can understand what the best form of treatment is and how to prevent your problem from worsening.

Foot & Ankle
Our foot and ankle surgeon, Dr. Tuvi Mendel, performs minimally-invasive foot and ankle procedures to help you get back to your normal activities with the least amount of downtime possible. Since the entire weight of the body, as well as additional stress, is placed on the foot and ankle, it is one of the most commonly injured areas. It is important you seek orthopaedic attention if you experience abnormal sensations or pain to keep your joints healthy and working properly.
Back & Neck
The symptoms of various back and neck problems can affect how the rest of the body functions. To relieve your discomfort and help you resume your normal activities, our spinal surgeon, Dr. Michael Dolphin, can diagnose your back and neck conditions and recommend the best treatment options for you. Non-surgical treatments are always the first to be considered, but minimally-invasive surgery is also available if you have a more complicated condition.
Your joints are a vital part of the human body, and when they’re not working properly, your day-to-day activities can seem impossible. While some conditions can be treated with non-surgical treatment, others may only improve with surgery. Dr. John Hoffman and Dr. Tuvi Mendel strive to find the least invasive treatment options possible, and only recommend surgery if it has significant potential at improving your joint problem.
