Minneapolis Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedics is a blanket terms that covers conditions and treatments of anything related to the musculoskeletal system. Because of its wide-reaching definition, many orthopedic surgeons specialize in a specific area of the body such as the spine, or foot/ankle. The orthopedic surgeons who practice at Greenway primarily specialize in foot & ankle, and spine surgery.

Since orthopedics covers the entire musculoskeletal system, there are numerous conditions that can be treated with orthopedic surgery, including:
- Achilles Tendinitis – inflammation of the Achilles tendon.
- Arthritis – pain caused by inflammation of the joints.
- Conditions of the foot – such as Bunions, Hammer Toes, and Plantar Fasciitis
- Bursitis – swelling of the cushions between joints, tendons, and muscles.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – hand pain caused by excessive pressure on the median nerve that travels through your wrist and into your hand.
- Osteoporosis – a degenerative condition wherein a person’s bones deteriorate over time.
As with any surgery, the particular procedure performed will be based on the conditions or injuries that need to be treated.
With so many orthopedic conditions, there are a bevy of potential orthopedic procedures that may be helpful in treatment. A few of the more common orthopedic procedures we perform at Greenway include:
- Arthroscopy Surgery
