When you have an injury that affects your musculoskeletal system, such as a torn ligament or a partial fracture, medication, physical therapy, and other types of nonsurgical treatments might not be effective. If your injury is severe or if you haven’t found relief and can’t do your regular activities, surgery might be a better option for you. J. Michael Bennett, MD, PA offers orthopaedic surgery for patients in Houston and Sugar Land, Texas who have injuries that affect their joints.
Orthopaedic surgery comes with certain risks, as any surgical procedure does, so it’s usually not used initially for treatment. Dr.Bennett will recommend other types of treatment first, such as physical therapy, to see if these relieve your symptoms while also allowing your body to heal. In general, you should consider looking into surgical options if you meet one of the following:
Dr.Bennett evaluates your injury to see what kind of damage you have and how much of it there is. He does a physical exam to check for pain and range of motion and orders imaging tests, such as x-rays, if needed. After evaluating your injury, he takes certain factors into consideration, such as your lifestyle and whether or not you have any conditions that might make surgery too much of a risk. Dr.Bennett will discuss your orthopaedic surgery options with you, including the risks and success rates of each.
Dr.Bennett does both minimally invasive and open orthopaedic surgical procedures. Some of the different procedures he offers include:
Dr. Bennettoffers Signature™ Personalized Patient Care, Oxford® Partial Knee, and Vanguard® Complete Knee for patients who need knee replacement surgery. Keep in mind that not all patients with knee injuries can have one of these procedures done. Dr. Bennett will let you know if you’re a good candidate for these procedures and discuss alternatives if you’re not a suitable candidate. These procedures involve the use of state-of-the-art technology and high-quality implants to restore functionality in your affected knee.
