      Our Treatments And Technology

      Our dedicated team of orthopedic experts is committed to providing you with the best orthopedic treatments, supported by exceptional healthcare services and state-of-the-art technologies. From our Orthopedic Urgent Care services and specialized programs for osteoporosis to our innovative robotics-assisted knee surgery and minimally invasive procedures like carpal tunnel release, we are committed to providing comprehensive orthopedic care.

      Your journey to optimal musculoskeletal health starts here!

       ROSA® Knee Robotic Technology

      ROSA® Knee Robotic Technology

      Getting a precise knee implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following knee replacement surgery. The ROSA Knee robot uses data collected before and during surgery to inform our surgical team of many details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit. By using this data to make more informed decisions, we are able to plan and carry out a personalized surgery based upon your individual needs.

      Benefits of ROSA Robotic Knee Replacement include:

      • Patients can potentially save money on their ROSA robotic surgery as the system does not require the use of CT scans
      • Less exposure to radiation
      • Increased accuracy compared to traditional knee replacement
      • Better implant positioning, which can result in a more natural-feeling knee after surgery
      • Potential for better long-term satisfaction and outcomes

      Zimmet Biomet Persona IQ® The Smart Knee®

      Zimmet Biomet Persona IQ® The Smart Knee®

      The worlds first and only Smart Knee implant by Zimmer Biomet is here! Our surgeons at AOS are now trained to work with the new Persona IQ technology, designed to provide real-time monitoring and personalized care, ensuring optimal recovery and improved patient outcomes.

      To learn more about this innovative technology visit Zimmer Biomet’s website.

      Osteoporosis Program

      Osteoporosis Program

      The Osteoporosis Program was developed by Auburn Orthopaedic Specialists to provide patients a comprehensive evaluation of osteoporosis.

      The evaluation will examine the patient’s history, nutrition, balance and fall prevention as well as a DEXA or bone mineral density review. It will explore treatment options and make recommendations to the patients. The program will also include evaluation for secondary causes, if needed, and x-ray evaluation if indicated. Patients can be self referred or provider referred.

      Micro-Invasive Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

      Micro-Invasive Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

      Carpal tunnel syndrome, or CTS, is a common condition that affects more than 12 million people, with an additional 2.6 million people diagnosed every year. If you’ve experienced the pain, tingling, or weakness that can occur with CTS, you know how debilitating it can be, and how much it can affect your work and personal life. Those days are over!

      Thanks to a low profile, safe, and effective instrument called the SX-One MicroKnife® — and ultrasound guidance—we can perform CTR in a matter of minutes, using only a small (4-5 mm) wrist incision. After the procedure, you’ll be able to resume activities as tolerated. And most patients can return to work and the activities they love within 3-6 days.

      Benefits include:

      • Performed in a procedure room or office setting
      • Typically performed using local anesthesia
      • Small wrist incisions usually closed without sutures
      • Reduce or eliminate the need for opioids
      • Postoperative therapy is typically not required— saving time and money
      • Immediate motion in your hand for rapid recovery
      • Return to normal activity in days not months
