Range of Services
At Progress West, orthopedic treatment is provided through a comprehensive program of treatment and rehabilitation, with an experienced medical team that includes orthopedic surgeons and support staff with subspecialties in:
Arthroscopy – Your orthopedic surgeon will use arthroscopy to diagnose and treat joint problems. An arthroscope is a small scope instrument that attached to a camera to look inside the joints.
Bunionectomies – Once alternative measures have been tried, your surgeon may want to remove the bunion from either side of your foot. Bunionectomoies are not a cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the foot, but rather a surgery to fix as much of the deformity as possible.
Foot and ankle surgery – An orthopedic surgeon may suggest surgery for many reasons, bunions, ingrown toenails, planters warts, or laparoscopic ankle surgery to remove scar tissue or bone spurs. Whatever the cause, orthopedic surgeons at Progress West have the experience to handle your care.
Fractures – Fractures are breaks in any bone in your skeletal system.

Typically this surgery is only done to a small portion of the back.
