Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland (OACM) brings you up-to-date news about the latest developments in orthopaedics, sports medicine, pain management, regenerative medicine, and physical therapy, as well as updates about our practice.
We now perform two spine procedures in-house, and have experts in two other out-patient spine procedures. Our in-house, spine-related procedures are mild® and kyphoplasty, and our outpatient procedures are endoscopic spinal decompression and Interlaminar decompression and stabilization.
mild® is a procedure that treats lumbar spinal stenosis. That's a narrowing of the space around the spinal nerves in your lower back. The mild procedure makes more room for these nerves, relieving painful compression.
Kyphoplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure repairs a vertebral compression fracture. It helps restore the spine's natural shape.
Endoscopic spinal decompression is a minimally invasive procedure that can alleviate back pain caused by pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
Interlaminar decompression and stabilization is a minimally invasive procedure that opens up spinal stenosis and can help stabilize the spine.
You can learn even more about these procedures on our new procedure page.
Knee Replacement News
A quadriceps sparing knee replacement can cause less pain and speed recovery. Instead of splitting the quadriceps tendon, it is just moved to the side. You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Silverstein to see if this may be appropriate for your knee.
