Ocean County Sports Medicine specializes in surgeries for the shoulder, knee and hip, including arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, direct anterior hip replacement, ligament repair, shoulder replacement, joint preservation, meniscal transplant and cartilage transplant. Take a moment to watch the videos below to learn more about these and other procedures.
We employ anatomically correct repair techniques with proven increases in healing rates for patients and specialize in the treatment of complex shoulder problems, including patients who have had failed prior surgery. Orthopedic surgeons throughout the country utilize Dr. Tauro’s innovative techniques.
Dr. Tauro is using a cutting-edge Muscle Sparing, No-Tourniquet Knee Replacement Technique! Traditionally, knee replacement required cutting through muscle. The new technique avoids cutting through muscle, and instead, goes underneath the muscle. This allows the patient to stand up soon after surgery, and have the muscle strength to walk, facilitating a faster return to normal activities.
At Ocean County Sports Medicine, we specialize in treating various foot and ankle conditions such as ankle sprains, joint surface injuries and fractures. The ankle joint provides the body with balance, stability and the ability to bear the body’s weight.
As recognized leaders and innovators in the field of orthopedics, Ocean County Sports Medicine treats a range of injuries and disorders to the hand, wrist and elbow.
A hip replacement involves removing the diseased surface of the ball and socket of the hip and replacing it with an artificial lining. There is typically a stem that goes into the canal of the femur that has the new ball attached.
Joint Preservation means preventing joint deterioration and arthritis, thus reducing the chance you will need a joint replacement. It involves both non-surgical and surgical techniques.
Cartilage and meniscus transplantation is a way for us to prevent or delay the need for future joint replacement. For cartilage transplantation, we use the patients own cartilage from an unneeded area of the knee or use carefully selected fresh donor cartilage.
