ACL Reconstruction and Repair
The terms ACL reconstruction and ACL repair sound similar, but the surgical procedure is different. Both are used to treat an ACL Tear, but they are unique in how and when they should be used. Many patients find an “all or nothing” mentality with their orthopedic surgeon where some surgeons will only repair an ACL tear and other surgeons prefer to only do an ACL reconstruction.
FAI & Hip Labrum tear –
Occurs when extra bone grows in one or both of the bones that make up the hip joint. When the extra bone grows on the femoral head this is referred to as a CAM deformity. That extra bone causes the bones of the hip joint to no longer fit together as they should. With femoroacetabular impingement, the bones rub together during movement, causing friction that damages the joint and this often causes a hip labrum tear. This condition of hip impingement leads to increasing levels of pain in the hip and is associated with diminished hip range of motion. Treatments can range from rest and OTC medication to arthroscopic hip surgery.
Finding it difficult to move your shoulder after a period of immobility such as after recovering from surgery or healing from a fractured arm? Frozen shoulder is a common condition in which the capsule of the shoulder joint becomes compressed and inflamed because of tightening and thickening of the tissues inside, limiting healthy range of motion and causing pain in the shoulder. A variety of frozen shoulder treatments are available to help restore healthy movement in the shoulder joint and reduce or eliminate pain.
Hip Abductor tear / Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
Hip Arthroscopy and Labral Repair
Hip arthroscopy, also referred to as keyhole surgery, a hip scope, or a minimally invasive procedure all refer to a method of surgery that examines the inside of the hip joint with a small surgical camera called an arthroscope. Hip arthroscopy uses a small surgical camera that is inserted through a small incision in the hip. The camera projects the image within the hip to a screen, allowing the orthopedic surgeon to see inside the hip joint.
LCL & MCL tear
The meniscus are two c-shaped pieces of tough, rubbery cartilage located in the middle of the knee, between the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone). The meniscus acts as a shock absorber and adds stabilization to the knee joint during movement. A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries seen by our sports medicine specialists at BICMD.
Meniscus tears are common among athletes and active individuals. In fact, it is estimated that over 500,000 meniscus tears occur each year in the United States. Meniscus tears occur most frequently for athletes who participate in sports that require a lot of twisting, changing positions, or squatting.
When the articular cartilage becomes damaged and that damage effects the bone beneath its protective surface, it is called an osteochondral defect. The specialists at BICMD have extensive experience and training when it comes to treating osteochondral defects of the joint. They have an excellent track-record and are able to give excellent advice and a second opinion for the best method of treating articular cartilage and bone damage.

Posterior Cruciate ligament tear
Rotator Cuff repair
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that work together in the shoulder to keep the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) within the glenoid (shoulder socket). The rotator cuff allows a large range of motion for the shoulder, giving it strength while rotating, turning, and lifting. If one or more of these muscle-tendons becomes damaged, or if the tendon tears off of the bone, it is called a rotator cuff tear.
