ACL reconstruction is done to replace a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. The goal is to stabilize the knee once again and return its full range of motion, prior to injury. When your surgeon removes the torn ACL, it will be replaced with a tendon, called a graft. Using arthroscopic surgery, your surgeon will position the graft and secure it in place using hardware like screws or wires, serving as a bridge that a new ligament will grow on as you heal.
At Hudson Orthopedic Pain & Spine, we perform various procedures to properly stabilize and fix the ankle following an ankle fracture or other injury to the ankle.
Arthroscopy is a procedure used by our orthopedic surgeons to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside a joint. This minimally invasive surgical method is performed using an arthroscope, which is made up of a tube, a lens, and a light source that can visualize the surgical area. This technique requires a small incision and a few stitches, rather than the large incision needed for standard open surgery, resulting in a quick recovery and less damage to surrounding tissues. Arthroscopic surgery has made diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from surgery easier and faster than was ever thought possible. At Hudson Orthopedic Pain & Spine, we use arthroscopic surgery on knee, shoulder, and other joint conditions.
Carpal Tunnel Release
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which travels from the forearm to the hand through the wrist, is squeezed or compressed. Carpal tunnel release surgery reduces pressure on this nerve by severing the band of the ligament that surrounds the wrist, making more space for the nerve and tendons.
Joint replacements of the knee, hip, and other joints involve the removal of damaged or arthritic joints, replaced with artificial joints that move like a healthy joint, restoring full range of motion for the patient. Partial and total replacements can be done, depending on the joint and patient needs.
Rotator Cuff Repair
A torn rotator cuff causes pain and severely limits your range of motion, and may not heal on its own. Complete tears should be repaired with surgery, with the goal of returning the shoulder to optimal function. This procedure can help treat a complete rotator cuff tear, among other severe shoulder tendon injuries. During the procedure, your surgeon will remove any tissue and bone spurs surrounding the joint, in which the torn tendon is stitched back onto its attachment to the arm.

Trigger Finger Release
Trigger finger causes a finger to catch and lock in a bent position due to an irritated flexor tendon. The trigger finger release procedure is done to cut the constricted tendon causing the problem. By freeing the tissue, the affected finger will be able to move freely again.
