Orthopedic MRI & XRAY
Part of getting an accurate diagnosis is to use available technology to help us! We have an in-office open extremity MRI. The MRI shows the soft tissue inside and around your injured joint and we can use this to determine more accurately the extent of your injury. We have our films read by a Radiologist and results are usually available within a day, sometimes sooner! Dr. Snyder reviews the MRI and we keep you informed every step of the way. You’ll get to see your films and have them discussed with you so you can see for yourself.
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Arthroscopic surgery has dramatically changed the way knee and shoulder injuries are treated. Compared to traditional open hospital-based surgery, outpatient arthroscopic surgery at AOI is minimally invasive with just two or three pea-sized incisions – resulting in less scarring. Arthroscopic surgery also takes less time – usually less than one hour. Outpatient arthroscopic surgery dramatically reduces the risk of infection and allows patients to return home just an hour or so after surgery. Our patients enjoy shortened recovery time, usually can resuming limited daily activities shortly thereafter.
