As an integrated health facility, orthopedic care plays an important part in many patients’ recovery at Rolling Hills Medical.

Commonly Treated Musculoskeletal Conditions

Shoulders

The shoulder consists of several joints, muscles, and tendons, whose wide range of motion make them particularly prone to injury. Shoulder pain often limits daily activities, from work and sleep, to everyday tasks like getting dressed. Natural degeneration and injury are quite common, resulting in weakness, pain, instability, and decreased mobility. Rollings Hills Medical’s team of leading orthopedic specialists have helped thousands of patients suffering from common shoulder problems like:

  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Fractures/ Breaks
  • Dislocations
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Bursitis

Spine

The spine is crucial to mobility and problems anywhere along the cervical spine (upper back), thoracic spine (middle), or lumbar spine (lower back) can cause pain, weakness, instability, and limited motion. Common conditions treated by our Rolling Hills Medical spine specialists include:

  • Back Pain
  • Herniated Discs
  • Spinal Stenosis

Elbow

Rolling Hills Medical’s orthopedic specialists have years of experience treating various elbow injuries and pain conditions. Acute injuries are often caused by direct blows or falls, where overuse injuries are caused by repetitive stress to the joint. Our elbow specialists provide comprehensive treatment for conditions such as:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Tendinitis
  • Overuse
  • Traumatic or repetitive injuries

Wrist

The wrist is especially prone to injury, due to the lack of protective fat and muscle surrounding the joint. Wrist pain is often caused by repetitive stress or falls that cause inflammation. Our orthopedic specialists offer comprehensive treatment for common causes of wrist pain, including:

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fracture
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains

Feet and Ankles

It’s important to seek prompt treatment of foot and ankle pain, as worsening conditions can affect walking and every day movement. The feet and ankles bear the body’s weight, making them especially prone to injury and wear and tear. Our orthopedic specialists treat many patients suffering from foot and ankle conditions, including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Strains and Sprains
  • Sports injuries: Achilles tendonitis, fractures, neuromas, and heel spurs

Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy, also known as keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure used to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems within a joint. Our orthopedic surgeon will make a small incision in the skin and insert an arthroscope (a slender tubular instrument with a lens and light) to aid in examination and surgery. The arthroscope is connected to a monitor that allows the surgeon to visualize the cartilage, ligaments, and structure inside the joint. Common arthroscopic surgeries include:

  • Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery
  • Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
