Hand & Upper Extremities

In this video, Dr. Miladore and Dr. Schwendeman of Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates speak about their specialties of treating hand & upper extremity injuries. YOA treats patients of all types, whether it be athletes injured in competition, to the average joe injured on the job site. Before jumping to surgical treatment options, YOA will first explore conservative treatment options, like bracing and physical therapy, which in many cases are sufficient to alleviate chronic and acute pain. Common surgeries like carpal tunnel surgery can now be done in as little as 15 minutes, with patients not requiring a hospital stay.

Hip & Knee Joint Replacement

In this video, Dr. David Weimer and Dr. James Jamison of Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates speak about their practice, specializing in hip and knee joint replacements and the benefits of choosing Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates to treat your injury. Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates has three fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons that specialize in joint replacement.

The doctors discuss typical treatment paths, which often start with conservative treatment options first. Should conservative treatment fail, the doctors then discuss the process of patient preparation & education on surgical treatment options, helping patients better understand what all their surgery will involve and the expected outcomes. With the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, roughly 90% of hip and knee joint replacement surgeries can be performed with no hospital stay required.

Sports Medicine

In this video, Dr. Thomas Joseph and Dr. Anthony Berdis of Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates discuss the benefits of choosing YOA to treat your sports injury. At YOA, surgery is not your only option. In fact, our doctors will work with patients to implement more conservative treatment options first, before evaluating if surgery is necessary to fix the problem. Joseph and Berdis also speak to recent advancements in orthopedic surgery that are helping patients heal faster, like the adoption of robotic-assisted surgery, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and platelet cell infusions that can help speed up recoveries of injuries.
