General Orthopedics

Are you searching for highly personalized orthopedic care in South Florida, where the doctors take time to listen and understand your concerns? Allegiance Orthopedic & Spine Institute is a busy orthopedic office with multiple locations, but our doctors are never too busy to sit down and discuss your concerns, one by one. We find that taking extra time in the beginning of your care leads to better results.

Our goal is to treat the entire body, which requires a thorough understanding of how your injury or pain condition impacts your life. Some orthopedic injuries can be resolved in a matter of weeks, but many injuries can take several months to completely heal. If your goal is to recover as quickly as possible, we can discuss ways to speed up the healing process right from the start.

As orthopedic surgeons, the foundation of our training is in general orthopedics including fractures and orthopedic trauma to any part of the body, head to toe. We have extensive experience dealing with conditions that affect the shoulders and knees, the two most complex joints in the body.

Common orthopedic conditions we treat:

Treatment for general orthopedic injuries typically starts with non-surgical remedies that can relieve your pain and allow your body to heal itself. Physical therapy can help to slowly strengthen and condition your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Some examples of non-surgical remedies include PRP therapy and viscosupplementation.

Orthopedic trauma cases may be handled differently because there are often multiple injuries involved. We have expertise in helping patients who have suffered serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents or at work.

PRP Therapy for Tendon Injuries and Osteoarthritis

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy offers a promising solution that naturally accelerates the healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis without subjecting you to significant risk. PRP therapy involves the injection of highly concentrated plasma directly into an injured area. The plasma is separated from your own blood.

PRP injections for knee, elbow, or foot injuries stimulate the body's ability to repair muscle, bone, and tissue. Best of all, the method appears to assist in the regeneration of tendon and ligament fibers, which may accelerate healing and even help you to avoid surgery.

Viscosupplementation for Knee Osteoarthritis

50 million Americans suffer from arthritis-related joint pain. When knee cartilage is completely worn away and the synovial fluid that lubricates the joint has run dry, we can re-lubricate the joint with an injection called a viscosupplement (Supartz® or Gel-One®).

Both Supartz and Gel-One are designed to help patients who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee regain their active lifestyles. These injections can help relieve your pain, improve your mobility, and reduce or delay your need for joint replacement.

Viscosupplementation can provide up to 6 months of relief for knee arthritis, and you can repeat the injection several times to extend the benefits.
