We help patients with a variety of symptoms and conditions.

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the human body. With flexibility comes instability and susceptibility to injury. The shoulder allows you to rotate your arm in many positions in front, above, to the side, and behind your body. Depending on the nature of the problem, many methods of treatment can be recommended to minimize symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of shoulder problems can make a significant difference in the chances of full recovery.

Your knee is the largest joint in your body and one of the most complex. The bones, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles work in harmony to produce movement. Articular cartilage is at the ends of the femur and tibia, and the back of the patella. Meniscal cartilage acts as "shock absorbers" between your femur and tibia. Different from articular cartilage, the meniscus is tough and rubbery to help cushion and stabilize the joint. The knee bones are connected to each other by ligaments. The four main ligaments in your knee act like strong ropes to hold the bones together and keep your knee stable.

Hip problems are becoming more common as the population ages. According to AAOS, the number of cases is expected to become even more frequent. Replacing the hip joint with an implant or "prosthesis" relieves pain and improves mobility. However, total hip replacement isn’t the only way to address hip problems.

Capital Surgical Associates specializes in caring for the ligaments, tendons, and bone of the ankle. The ankle joint allows the up-and-down movement of the foot. The subtalar joint sits below the ankle joint and allows side-to-side motion of the foot. Numerous ligaments surround the ankle and subtalar joints, binding the bones of the leg to each other and to those of the foot.

Your spine is made up of three segments and these segments form three natural curves. The "c-shaped" curves of the neck (cervical spine) and the lower back (lumbar spine). As well as the "reverse c-shaped" curve of the chest (thoracic spine) also called kyphosis. These curves are important to balance and make it possible to stand upright. If any one of the curves becomes too large or small, it eventually causes the patient problems.

Your elbow is made up of three bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, three major nerves and a joint capsule that all work together to form a hinge joint. The design of your elbow allows you to bend your arm and rotate your hands. Many daily activities require repetitive movements of the elbow that can lead to wear and tear. The most common elbow conditions are due to dislocation, fracture, and arthritis. We specialize in orthopedic care for all areas of the body including your elbow.

Dr. Williams often removes skin lesions (such as moles, or nevi), subcutaneous masses such as lipomas, or even chronic areas of repeated infection such as sebaceous cysts that tend to recur intermittently.

CAPITAL SURGICAL TESTIMONIALS

 

Dr. Doerr and all of his staff have been wonderful during my whole experience with a total hip replacement surgery. The care they gave to me during each facet of the surgery made me feel confident and secure. I received follow up phone calls each week to make sure that everything was going well, this from Dr. Doerr himself. If I did call back with a question the staff was right there to help me. I have never received such personal treatment from a medical establishment. My experience at the Treasure Valley Hospital was the same. It is great comfort to know that we have this facility in the valley that provides such quality of care and at a reasonable cost.
