ARC Orthopedics

Beside you on the path to pain-free mobility

Improve your movement and daily life

Do you have pain or injury relating to the arm, elbow, shoulder, hand, hip, knee, or leg? Then you might want to consider an Orthopedic specialist. Our expert physicians provide leading-edge, comprehensive care in the diagnosis and treatment of Orthopedic conditions, including total joint replacement and sports medicine. Returning you back to pain-free movement and full strength as quickly and painlessly as possible is our mission. After a comprehensive diagnosis, we will guide you through your non-surgical treatment options: medication, physical therapy, orthopedic braces, or other mobility aids. An orthopedic surgeon will also review minimally invasive surgical treatment options, resulting in a faster recovery time and less pain. You can access sports medicine and orthopedic care easily for issues from the shoulder to the legs at multiple locations across Central Texas.

Our orthopedic specialties

When pain or injury requires the attention of an orthopedic specialist, you may be referred by your primary care physician or self-refer if your insurance allows. An orthopedic surgeon can diagnose and provide surgical treatment for fractures, sports injuries, arthritis, hand problems, and other musculoskeletal ailments.  Our orthopedic surgeons’ goal is to help improve function and reduce pain in your daily life, whether it’s caused by a new or old sports injury, arthritis, or repetitive use.

ACL Reconstruction

The ACL is the ligament in the knee that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone), and is the most common ligament to be injured. ACL reconstruction is a surgical treatment to restore stability at the knee joint.

Arthritis Treatment

Arthritis Treatment

Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are common conditions that cause pain, swelling, and limited movement. They affect joints and connective tissues around the body. 

Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat conditions that affect joints. The surgeon can directly view the inside areas of a joint using a tool called an arthroscope, a small, tube-shaped tool that's used to look inside a joint. Orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy to diagnose and treat joint problems. 

Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel release is a surgery used to treat and potentially heal carpal tunnel syndrome, which can be caused by injury, such as a sprain or fracture, repetitive use of a vibrating tool, or even a congenital predisposition (something that runs in families). 

Cubital Tunnel Release

Cubital Tunnel Release

Cubital tunnel syndrome happens when the ulnar nerve, which passes through the cubital tunnel (a tunnel of muscle, ligament, and bone) on the inside of the elbow, becomes inflamed, swollen, and irritated.

Shoulder Instability Repair
