General Surgery

Charles Frankum, MD
Surgical Specilist, General

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), hernia repair, PowerPort placement, cyst removal.

Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia—a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy; or hernioplasty.

Plastic and Hand surgery

Morry Olenick, MD
Plastic Surgeon
Hand Surgeon

Carpal tunnel release, lesion removal with skin grafting if necessary, trigger finger release, amputation of finger/toe

Carpal tunnel release is a surgery used to treat and potentially heal the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. Doctors used to think that carpal tunnel syndrome was caused by an overuse injury or a repetitive motion performed by the wrist or hand, often at work.

Ophthalmology

John M. Roberts Jr., MD
Ophthalmologist

Cataract surgery, YAG procedure

Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Normally, the lens of your eye is clear. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which eventually affects your vision.

YAG Laser Capsulotomy is a laser procedure where the eye(s) is dilated, giving the doctor a view of the protein buildup behind the implanted lens. The YAG laser clears protein film to restore vision.

Urology

John Logan, MD
Urologist

Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy (sis-TOS-kuh-pee) is a procedure that allows your doctor to examine the lining of your bladder and the tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A hollow tube (cystoscope) equipped with a lens is inserted into your urethra and slowly advanced into your bladder.

Orthopedic Surgery

Jeffrey Schopp, MD
Orthopedic Surgeon

Arthroscopy of shoulder and knee

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic or keyhole surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

Cardiology

John Ord, MD, FACC

NucMed stress tests. We also do HIDA scans, thyroid scans, and bone scans with NucMed.

A nuclear stress test uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart. The test measures blood flow while you are at rest and are exerting yourself, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.
