Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
General SurgeryPhysician Assistants (P.A.s) are licensed healthcare professionals who practice medicine with physician supervision. As part of the physician/P.A. team, P.A.s diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries. They deliver a broad range of medical and surgical services to diverse populations in both rural and urban settings throughout the United States. Their focus is patient care, which may include education, research, and administrative activities. P.A.s can treat patients when the physician is away from the practice and can write prescriptions.
OrthopedicsOrthopedic Associates P.A. is the largest orthopedic practice in Northern New Mexico. Orthopedic Associates was founded in 1972 and has grown to seven board certified orthopedic surgeons, one board certified podiatric surgeon, and three physician assistants. Orthopedic Associates provides care for most subspecialty areas of orthopedics including sports medicine, total joint replacement and revision, arthroscopic reconstruction of the knee and shoulder, pediatric orthopedics, and foot and ankle reconstruction.
Joint ReplacementTotal joint replacement means replacing both sides of the surface of a joint. In the knee it means replacing both the thin cartilage surface on the lower joint surface which is the tibia, and the upper joint surface which is the femur. Also, the joint surface under the kneecap is replaced. This requires removing the thin cartilage surface and a thin surface of bone for replacement with a metal and plastic surface. This allows all movement of the joint to occur between the metal and plastic parts rather than the raw bone left by arthritis.
Diabetic Foot CareHe is a member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the American Podiatric Medical Association. Dr. Waters is excited to be here in the four corners region. He wants to keep the population up and active without foot and ankle pain. He provides a full range of foot and ankle care from non-surgical care and basic foot and ankle questions to advanced reconstruction of foot and ankle deformity and the full range of diabetic foot care.
General PodiatryA Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), or podiatrist is a licensed healthcare professional who is qualified by their education and training to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg. Podiatrists are uniquely qualified among medical professionals to treat the foot and ankle based on their education, training and experience.
Plantar FasciitisInjectable cortisone is synthetically produced and has many different trade names, such as Celestone, Kenalog and Depomedrol, but is a close derivative of your body’s own product. It can be injected into areas of the body that have become inflamed from overuse, injury, or arthritis, with significant relief of symptom. Common areas for injection include the major joints such as hips, knees, or shoulders for arthritis or bursitis. Other problem areas such as tennis elbow, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome or plantar fasciitis in the foot are common sites for injection. Cortisone injections usually work within a few days and the effects can last for several weeks. Often physicians do not want to give more than three cortisone injections at least 3 months apart. If the response is not helpful, repeating it may not be worthwhile.

Orthotics and Prosthetic Therapy
Physical TherapySynvisc is a different kind of treatment for patients with OA (OsteoArthritis) of the knee that actually replaces damaged knee fluid in the knee joint. Only your doctor can decide if Synvisc is a good option for you if mild exercise and physical therapy or simple pain relievers like acetaminophen or other anti-inflammatory medications haven’t given enough relief. It is administered directly into the knee, one injection a week for three weeks. It may reduce OA knee pain for up to 6 months, with maximum relief usually 6-8 weeks after the series. Some people may begin to experience pain relief after the first injection of Synvisc, however all three injections are recommended for maximum benefit.
