This experienced Green Valley orthopedist offers a full-service orthopedic practice. He treats injuries to the knees, shoulders, and hips. Knee pain is a leading orthopedic problem and one that this office has tremendous experience helping. For knee tendon inflammation or tears, instability, or pain from arthritis, Dr. Grondel will always suggest non-surgical treatments first. These may include anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, wearing a brace, or physical therapy. The shoulder is an area of his expertise and he treats conditions of dislocation, tendon tears, rotator cuff injuries, instability, and arthritis pain with an initial non-invasive approach. The hip is also a common injury site and fractures, arthritic conditions, and tendon tears are treated with weight loss programs, orthotics, physical therapy, and steroid injections before surgery is discussed.
If surgery is your best option, this skilled Green Valley orthopedist provides minimally-invasive arthroscopic techniques with state-of-the-art procedures. He also uses digital imaging to assess the damage done to joints and tendons. This way, nothing is overlooked and all conditions are thoroughly examined. You are in excellent hands with Dr. Grondel. So if you have sustained a sports injury or have developed joint pain, call us today for an appointment. Our friendly staff will treat you like family and get you on the fast track to recovery.
