Joint Preservation Surgical Treatments of the Hip, Knee and Shoulder
Dr. Urse is trained in joint preservation surgeries of the hip, knee and shoulder. These include arthroscopic procedures and computer-assisted partial and total joint replacement surgeries. Also, he has published articles corrective realignment surgeries of the knee (osteotomies) and has additional training in orthobiologic treatments such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections to delay joint replacement surgeries.
Dr. Urse has a special interest in hip arthroscopy, particularly in reshaping the ball and socket of the hip joint to prevent early arthritis and need for joint replacements. He also uses hip arthroscopy to repair torn gluteus medius tendons – the so-called “rotator cuff tear of the hip”. He holds a patent on these repairs done through three small holes as an outpatient procedure.
Dr. Urse’s mission is to provide an accurate diagnosis of the patient’s condition in order to provide operative and non-operative treatment options, tailored to the patient’s specific needs.
