Berkshire Orthopaedic Associates – which has earned a five-star rating from Health Grades for joint replacement surgery – provides comprehensive orthopaedic surgery at Berkshire Medical Center and Fairview Hospital. This highly-skilled team of surgeons offers the community general orthopaedic care and the latest in minimally-invasive techniques which are revolutionizing orthopaedic surgery for patients of all ages. With smaller incisions, less pain and fewer complications, minimally invasive surgery is now enabling patients to return to active lives as quickly as possible.
The practice cares for patients of all ages. Berkshire Orthopaedic Associates performs hip, knee and shoulder reconstruction and replacement for “baby boomers” and older patients, and care and treatment for complex fractures and other trauma to bones and joints. The doctors of BOA are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to care for orthopaedic trauma injuries in our region.
New pain management techniques not available even a few years ago have positively impacted orthopaedic surgery. The surgeons, with a team of anesthesiologists, often employ ultrasound-guided regional anesthetic techniques to help minimize post-surgical pain. This enables patients to go home and start physical therapy more quickly.
The region’s most experienced orthopaedic practice, Berkshire Orthopaedic Associates provide the community with around-the-clock care, a commitment to excellent patient results, and leading edge surgical techniques and treatment. Recently, the first autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) was performed at BMC by a surgeon at Berkshire Orthopaedic Associates. This procedure involves harvesting a small section of a patient’s own cartilage, sending the cells to a lab where they are grown into a larger segment, and implanting the segment to replace lost or damaged cartilage in a patient’s knee.
