They are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, arthritis, and other issues affecting the bones and joints. Our orthopedic doctors and team use both surgical and non-surgical methods to address all conditions related to your bones, muscles and joints. 


What Orthopedic Conditions Are Treated at Garden State Pain and Orthopedics?


Knee Conditions

  • ACL Reconstruction: The ACL is a ligament that helps stabilize the knee joint. An ACL tear often occurs during sports or activities involving sudden stops, changes in direction, or direct impact to the knee.
  • MCL Reconstruction: The MCL is a ligament on the inner side of the knee that helps stabilize it. MCL sprains can result from a direct blow to the outer part of the knee or from a twisting injury.
  • Meniscus Tears: The meniscus is a wedge-shaped cartilage in the knee that acts as a cushion and helps with stability. Tears can occur due to twisting or rotating the knee, often seen in sports or activities that involve such movements.
  • Patella Injuries/Dislocation:  This occurs when the kneecap is forced out of its normal position. It can happen due to a sudden change in direction or a direct blow to the knee.
  • Total Knee Replacements: If you have a history of knee injuries and general knee pain, Garden State Pain and Orthopedics offers knee replacements that allow you to walk the same day as surgery. 


Hip Injuries

  • Hip Fractures: Fractures of the hip bones, particularly the femoral neck or the greater trochanter, can occur due to falls, trauma, or osteoporosis.
  • Hip Labral Tears: The labrum is a ring of cartilage that surrounds the hip socket. Tears can result from injury or repetitive movements and may cause pain and limited hip motion.
  • Hip Dislocation: Dislocation occurs when the ball of the hip joint is forced out of the socket. This often happens due to trauma, such as a car accident or a fall.
  • Hip Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae (fluid-filled sacs) around the hip joint can cause pain and swelling. Trochanteric bursitis and iliopsoas bursitis are two common types.
  • Hip Tendonitis: Inflammation of tendons around the hip joint, such as the iliotibial (IT) band or the iliopsoas tendon.
  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip: Degeneration of the hip joint cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. It is more common in older individuals but can also result from injury or overuse.
  • Hip Replacements: Dr. Deepan Patel specializes in hip joint replacements. 


Shoulder Conditions

  • Shoulder Impingement: This occurs when the rotator cuff tendons or the bursa (a fluid-filled sac in the shoulder) become pinched between the bones of the shoulder. It can cause pain and inflammation.
  • Rotator Cuff Tears: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. Tears in these tendons can occur due to overuse, trauma, or degeneration with age. Rotator cuff tears tend to occur during sports like baseball. 
  • Labral Tear: The labrum is a ring of cartilage that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint. Tears in the labrum can result from injury or repetitive shoulder motions. Many labral tears occur in active gym going individuals. 
  • Frozen Shoulder: This condition involves stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. It usually develops gradually and can be associated with inflammation and the formation of scar tissue.
  • Dislocation: This occurs when the upper arm bone (humerus) pops out of the socket (glenoid) in the shoulder blade. Dislocations often result from trauma or excessive force from car accidents or impact sports like rugby. 
  • AC Joint Sprains: An injury to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint, which is the joint between the collarbone and the shoulder blade. It can be caused by falls or direct impact.
  • Tendonitis: Inflammation of the shoulder joint from overuse.
  • Arthritis: Degeneration of the cartilage in your shoulder. 
  • Deltoid Tears: Competitive lifters put themselves at a high risk of muscle tears
  • Garden State Pain and Orthopedics also offers total shoulder replacements. 


Arm Injuries

  • Fractures: Fractures or breaks in the bones of the arm, including the humerus (upper arm bone), radius, and ulna (forearm bones). Fractures can result from falls, trauma, or direct blows.
  • Dislocations: Elbow and wrist dislocations. 
  • Elbow Sprains and Strains: Both occur commonly in the elbow or wrist.
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Inflammation of the tendons on the outer side of the elbow, often caused by repetitive motions or overuse.
  • Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis): Inflammation of the tendons on the inner side of the elbow, also caused by repetitive stress or overuse.
  • Biceps Tendonitis: Inflammation of the biceps tendon, which can cause pain and discomfort in the upper arm.Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow, leading to pain, tingling, and numbness in the arm and hand.
  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the radial nerve in the forearm, causing pain and weakness.


Foot Conditions

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. It can cause heel pain, especially with the first steps in the morning.
  • Stress  Fractures: Small cracks or fractures in the bones of the foot, often caused by repetitive stress or overuse. Stress fractures are common in athletes and runners.
  • Turf Toe: Hyperextension of the big toe, often seen in athletes playing sports on artificial turf. It can result in sprain or ligament damage.
  • Morton's Neuroma: Thickening of the tissue around a nerve between the bases of the toes, leading to pain and discomfort, often in the ball of the foot.
  • Bunions: A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the joint at the base of the big toe. It can be caused by genetics, improper footwear, or arthritis. Minimally invasive bunion surgery allows you to walk the day of your procedure.
  • Hammer Toes: A deformity where one or more toes bend abnormally at the joint, creating a hammer-like appearance. It can be caused by muscle imbalances and improper footwear.
  • Ingrown Toenails: When the edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin, leading to pain, swelling, and sometimes infection.
  • Plantar Warts: Viral infections that cause warts on the soles of the feet, often painful when walking.
  • Gout: A form of arthritis that can affect the joints of the foot, causing sudden and severe pain, swelling, and redness.
  • Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons in the foot, such as the posterior tibial tendon or peroneal tendons.
  • Sprained Toes: Injuries to the ligaments surrounding the toe joints, often caused by stubbing the toe or other trauma.

Ankle Injuries

  • Ankle Sprains: Injuries to the ligaments surrounding the ankle joint, often caused by twisting or rolling the ankle. Sprains can range from mild to severe.
  • Achilles Tendonitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It can result from overuse, improper footwear, or sudden increases in physical activity.
  • Ankle Fractures: Fractures or breaks in the bones of the ankle, which can include the tibia, fibula, and talus. Fractures can result from trauma, falls, or accidents.
  • High Ankle Sprain (Syndesmotic Sprain): A sprain involving the syndesmotic ligaments that connect the tibia and fibula bones. This type of sprain often requires a longer recovery period than a typical ankle sprain.
  • Peroneal Tendon Injuries: Injuries to the tendons that run along the outer side of the ankle. Tendonitis, tears, or subluxations can occur.
  • Chronic Lateral Ankle Instability: A condition where the outer side of the ankle feels unstable, often due to repeated ankle sprains or insufficient healing of previous sprains.

Additional Leg Injuries

  • Leg Fractures: Fractures: Breaks in the leg bones, such as the femur (thigh bone), tibia, and fibula (lower leg bones). Fractures can result from trauma, falls, or overuse.
  • Muscle tears: Athletes that participate in sprinting, jumping, and heavy weight training may experience:
