At St. Clair Orthopaedics, we understand that your time is precious. Our goal is to help you achieve a full and speedy recovery. For your convenience we provide a variety of services located at both locations.
X-Rays


St Clair Orthopaedics is pleased to provide patients with the latest in digital x-ray technology. The high resolution images, made possible with digital x-rays enable our physicians to give a more accurate diagnosis. Instant image availability means less time spent waiting for x-rays. Digital x-ray also uses a lower dose of radiation compared to conventional x-ray. It is environmentally friendly because the chemical processing is eliminated. Our onsite imaging department is staffed with experienced registered radiographers who strive for excellence in the production of digital images and high quality patient care.


Back & Neck Pain Treatment/surgery

Treatment for Back and Neck Pain can vary depending on the severity. Treatment could include medication, physical therapy, bracing, injections and surgical procedures. Surgical procedures include the kyphoplasty, laminectomy and microdiscectomy and lumbar or cervical fusions. Dr. Sidhu and Dr. Minster have fellowship training in advanced spinal reconstruction techniques.


Fracture Care

A fracture is a complete, or incomplete, break in a bone. Treatment can include casting, splinting, bracing or surgery. Depending on the severity of the fracture we have multispecialty trained orthopaedic surgeons to take care of any fracture. Our doctors have advanced fellowship training in joint replacements, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery, spine surgery, sports medicine and shoulder surgery.


Joint Replacements

A joint replacement is the process of removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. This can be done on the major joints such as the Hip, Knee, Elbow, Shoulder and Ankle. Our specialty trained physicians will evaluate you and determine the best course of treatment.


Joint Injections

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a form of arthritis that is caused by the breakdown of cartilage in joints. It is the most common form of arthritis. In addition to cortisone injections, there are several visco supplementations that are used to treat osteoarthritis. These are injected directly into the joint. St. Clair Orthopaedics physicians use the following viscosupplements; Synvisc & Synvisc One, Hyalgan, Euflexxa, and Gel One.


Ultrasound

When using an injection to deliver treatment in to painful joints, ultrasound guided injections may be used to aid in the precision of injection placement. The ultrasound can ensure a more precise and accurate needle placement. St. Clair Orthopaedics physicians and nurse practitioners are trained in ultrasound guided injections. These injections can be done in the office and are usually covered by your insurance.


Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

St. Clair Orthopaedics offers the convenience of on-site DME to our patients. We are able to provide a variety of items to patients, whose insurances cover durable medical equipment, directly in the office. We will work with you to get you the best brace for your needs.

Each patient receives a customized rehabilitation program tailored to their individual needs.

Independent Medical Exams (IME's) and Legal Exams

IMEs occur when a doctor who has not previously been involved in the patients care examines an individual. Legal Exams are also a review of patient records regarding medical care provided by other physicians. Our physicians perform both IME’s and Legal Exams at the request of insurance companies and legal counsel. Contact the office if you are interested in scheduling an IME or Legal Exam.
