The Benefits of in office procedures
When undergoing surgery at an outside facility, the patient is burdened with additional expenses for the facility and anesthesia. By performing surgery in our state-of-the-art procedure rooms, we eliminate these additional fees, decreasing the cost to the patient while maintaining the highest standard of care.
- No general anesthesia, no nausea or vomiting!
- Much less cost to you, the patient!
- As safe as formal operating room
- Equivalent or even better outcomes
- No need for a driver
- You can eat and drink like normal
- If you take insulin, you can take your medicine just like normal
- If you have health problems you can avoid anesthesia
- No IV needed! The numbing medicine needle is much smaller too!
- You get to talk and ask questions during the procedure (better communication & more time with the surgeon!)
We rely on our hands to perform tasks throughout the day, from brushing our teeth to doing our jobs. When hands don't function properly, it's important to accurately diagnose and treat the condition. Whether you are suffering from an injury, repetitive motion issues, or a degenerative condition, our highly skilled surgeons use the latest techniques to diagnose and treat your problems. Among the hand issues we treat are carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, ganglion cysts, and tendon and nerve injuries.
Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow are the common names in sports medicine for painful conditions caused by overuse of the elbow. But as painters, mechanics, cooks, and others know firsthand, these ailments crop up whenever repetitive motions are part of the job. Whatever elbow condition you face, we offer a full range of specialized care, including non-surgical treatment, minimally invasive procedures, and surgical options, to get you back in form.
Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. However, that range of movement also makes the shoulder more susceptible to injury, whether from repetitive athletic activities, daily chores, or accidents. Our surgeons have advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder and upper arm conditions, including arthritis, rotator cuff tears, biceps tendinitis, and fractures.
Compassionate & Understanding
"Dr. Lesley is very good at what he does. He was very compassionate and understanding when I told him how much pain I was in. He took time to answer my questions and explain everything. " Candis Richardson - 5-Star Google Review - September 2019
Affordable Orthopedic Surgery How We Save You Money
We accept financing through CareCredit for all of our orthopedic procedures. CareCredit is a third-party lender that works similarly to a credit card company, but specifically for medical treatment. Our office staff is happy to help you coordinate navigating this process.
Ambulatory Surgery Centers
To avoid exorbitant hospital costs, we perform advanced orthopedic surgery at ambulatory surgery centers. These modern centers are specifically designed to support outpatient surgical procedures and they allow us to provide the same level of care as a hospital at a fraction of the cost.
For less advanced conditions like carpal tunnel or trigger finger, our orthopedic surgeons can operate in our Fort Worth, TX, office for even less than the cost of going to a facility. When you meet with one of our physicians for a consultation, they will discuss with you what location will be best suited for your needs.
