Arthroscopic and Reconstructive Surgery
Arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery are among the advanced surgical techniques and technology Dr. Gasner uses to treat patients and achieve the best outcomes. These procedures may be an effective treatment for repairing or replacing a damaged joint and restoring function for patients impacted by severe forms of arthritis, joint deformity, mobility issues, injuries, and other diseases and conditions of the hand, elbow and shoulder.

The Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute Approach
The decision to proceed with surgery should come only after trying nonsurgical options is a tenant of the Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute approach to patient care. Dr. Gasner advocates this approach and believes nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy, prescription medication management and injections should be tried prior to surgery.
