Orthopedics
Bay Area and Oakland

What is orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is the field of study that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and deformities to the human musculoskeletal system. This includes disorders that affect the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, as well as the nerves and the skin.

Much of orthopaedics is dedicated to surgical procedures, as many injuries to the muscles, joints and bones may only be able to be healed using surgery. At Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists, we offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments with one of the top orthopedic surgeons the Bay Area has to offer.

Dr. Warren Strudwick is an experienced board-certified orthopedic surgeon in the Oakland and East Bay area who specializes in the treatment of shoulders and knees. During his career, he has successfully treated patients with all kinds of joint injuries, sports ailments, and more.

With a commitment to the delivery of high-quality orthopedic care every time, you can be confident that with us you are in the hands of competent professionals.

When is surgery required?

At Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists, we believe in first adopting minimally-invasive procedures to treat any joint, bone or cartilage damage, instead of jumping straight to surgery. However, when the damage is too severe and advanced, conservative approaches don’t always work and surgery is unavoidable.

When surgery is required to treat your injury, we will ensure that you receive world-class care at every step of your treatment. Dr. Strudwick is one of the top orthopedic doctors in Oakland, a skilled and experienced surgeon who knows how to perform surgeries in a gentle and precise manner. This really helps in shortening the recovery period and helping you heal as quickly as possible.

Orthopedic Surgeon Bay Area and Oakland

If you experience any of the following, then surgery may be the best option for you.

If you have bone damage
Accidents and diseases such as osteoarthritis can cause severe bone damage that conservative approaches like medication and physical therapy won’t be able to fix. If X-rays and imaging tests show that this is the case, then surgery may be necessary.

If you have a joint deformity
In some cases, bone deformity may be caused as a result of severe injury to the bone, joints or cartilage. When visible deformity develops, it is a clear sign that you need surgery as soon as possible.

If you have severe pain and joint stiffness
If your condition or injury has progressed intensively, resulting in severe pain and chronic joint stiffness, chances are that conservative methods won’t help you heal. So, in such cases, we may recommend surgery as a treatment method.

A new and improved
approach to joint surgery

At Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists, we are proud to have one of the best orthopedic surgeons the Bay Area has to offer, to give our patients the top service and results.
Thanks to our advanced biologic regenerative treatments, our joint surgeries are now improved to be more effective.

Below, you can find the different types of surgeries and how they are complemented by these treatments.

Meniscus
surgery

Here, a tiny needle-sized camera is used to view the knee’s pathology in colored HD. This helps the surgeon to remove all the damaged tissue accurately without impacting the healthy intact tissue. After this, regenerative cells can be administered directly to the site of the incision to reduce any risk of infection and encourage quick healing.

ACL
surgery

If you tear your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), you may experience pain and instability. Furthermore, you have a higher risk of developing arthritis. PRP or Bone Marrow Stem Cells can be used to inject the knee joint to speed up recovery time while reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling.

Total hip replacement
surgery

As the name suggests, a total hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure where the surgeon replaces the cartilage and bone damaged due to injuries or disease and it is replaced with an artificial hip joint.

Revision hip replacement
surgery

A revision hip replacement surgery is required when your hip implant needs to be surgically revisited because of pain or instability caused by damage. The damaged pieces are replaced using this method of surgery.

Total knee replacement
surgery

When your entire knee joint is damaged due to arthritis, a total knee replacement is usually required. It helps to get rid of pain and restore function.

Partial knee replacement
surgery

A partial knee replacement is required only when a single part of your knee is damaged. It is a procedure where the inside or the outside portion of your knee, or your kneecap is replaced. This is less intensive and less invasive compared to total knee replacement surgery.

Revision knee replacement
surgery

In the unfortunate case that your knee replacement surgery leads to complications later on and needs to be corrected, a revision knee replacement surgery is required. This surgical procedure will rectify the implant failure and restore joint stability and function.
