A New Way For Partial Knee Replacements
By Timothy Lane, M.D.

The goal of knee replacement surgery is to decrease pain and restore function in the knee. Although most knee replacement candidates need a total knee replacement, there is a percentage of patients who qualify for a less invasive option. This less invasive option is called an unicompartmental knee replacement, better known as “partial knee replacement.” Read more about partial knee replacements here.


Common Causes of Finger Stiffness
By Zakariah S. Mahmood, M.D.

A common complaint of patients who are referred to a hand specialist is loss of mobility and motion of the fingers. Most often these complaints are gradual in onset, rather than starting abruptly. The stiffness and loss of mobility may or may not be associated with pain. Usually, patients complain of the inability to do activities they enjoy because of loss of gripping ability or fine dexterity. Important and common causes of this loss in mobility include Dupuytren’s contracture, arthritis, locked trigger finger, and various injuries. Fortunately, there are treatments available for these conditions. Read more about these common conditions and their treatment options here.

Treatment Options For Rotator Cuff Tears
By Jonathan R. Pritt, M.D.

A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. In 2008, close to 2 million people in the U.S. visited their doctors because of a rotator cuff problem. The rotator cuff can tear as a result of injury or, much more commonly, as a result of age related degeneration. Learn more about treatment options for rotator cuff tears here.
