OUR SPECIALTIES

ARTHROSCOPIC SURGERY AND SPORTS MEDICINE

Dr. Landsberg is an arthroscopic surgeon, which means he is able to perform minimally invasive surgery through small holes. He has performed arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgeries for over 20 years and has worked with a number of local high schools to help treat student athletes' sports medicine injuries and perform pre-participation physical exams. He also performs elbow, ankle and wrist arthroscopies, including endoscopic carpal tunnel release. Dr. Landsberg has extensive shoulder surgery experience with respect to arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs, arthroscopic labral repairs and arthroscopic repairs for dislocating shoulders, which he has been doing for more than 10 years.

ENDOSCOPIC CARPAL TUNNEL RELEASE

As an arthroscopic surgeon, Dr. Landsberg has performed arthroscopic carpal tunnel release for more than 10 years through a small incision in the wrist. Most patients return to the office within 10 days following the surgery with full range of motion in the wrist and fingers. Most do not need any pain medication postoperatively, which allows a much earlier return to function and work.

ARTHROSCOPIC ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR

Dr. Landsberg performs all rotator cuff repairs arthroscopically as an outpatient procedure. Thanks to new arthroscopic techniques, visualization and treatment are greatly improved compared to traditional methods. Arthroscopic repair can even be used for for chronic and large tears. Sometimes the repair is augmented with a graft, which can also be inserted and repaired arthroscopically. All patients receive a shoulder block preoperatively, which often provides up to 15 -20 hours of postoperative pain relief, which allows for early immobilization and range of motion. A pain pump, which can be left in for 48 hours following surgery may also be used.

ARTHROSCOPIC KNEE SURGERY

After a failure of conservative or non-operative measures for knee problems, arthroscopic surgery may be performed. Landsberg Orthopaedics offers a number of treatment options for early arthritis or articular cartilage defects in the joint surface. Joint surface problems may be treated with simple debridement (removal of damaged
tissue) or cartilage repair procedures. These arthroscopic procedures include the OATS procedure and microfracture (chondral picking) techniques. The knee may also be realigned using osteotomy procedures to remove the dead, damaged or infected tissue.

MENISCAL PRESERVATION SURGERY

The medial and lateral meniscus (cartilage cushions on the inside and outside of each knee) are important shock absorbing structures in the knee. If a patient experiences a meniscus tear, it is important to remove as little of the damaged meniscus as possible. Dr. Landsberg strives to preserve as much normal tissue as possible, using multiple techniques. He is also one of the few orthopaedic surgeons in the area who is able to perform meniscal transplant surgery, and the only surgeon who has performed this procedure in Sumner County. These procedures are all performed arthroscopically.

KNEE REALIGNMENT PROCEDURES

In younger patients with malalignment (incorrect alignment) of the lower extremities and arthritis concentrated to one side of the knee, Dr. Landsberg may perform a realignment procedure. For the inside of the knee (medial compartment), this procedure is typically called a high tibial osteotomy (HTO). For lateral compartment arthritis (on the outside of the knee), a distal femoral osteotomies is often performed.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT

Knee replacement may be performed when all other treatment methods fail. Dr. Landsberg is one of the only surgeons in the area who is able to perform minimally invasive total knee replacement, which preserves muscle function through a small incision, allowing for less discomfort, earlier hospital discharge and improved recovery
time. He is also one of the only surgeons in Middle Tennessee who uses computer-assisted navigation to aid in exact placement of the new knee components and is the only surgeon who performs both procedures together.

GetAroundKnee

Landsberg Orthopaedics offers Stryker's single-radius knees, which have been used in knee replacement surgery since 1996. They are designed to work with the body to promote a natural-like circular motion. This is due to the single-radius design of the knee implant. Single radius means that as your knee flexes, the radius is the same, similar to a circle, potentially requiring less effort from your quadriceps muscle.

ConforMIS PATIENT-SPECIFIC KNEE IMPLANTS

Landsberg Orthopaedics also offers ConforMIS personalized knee replacement systems, which provides implants that are custom-made for each patient. The instruments Dr. Landsberg uses during the operation is also personalized, using the same CT scan data used to make the implant. Using these personalized instruments
simplifies many of the sizing and alignment steps used in standard knee replacement surgery, which simplifies the surgery itself, as most adjustments are able to be accounted for before the surgery even begins.
