Strains, Sprains & Fractures

Comprehensive NJ orthopedic care of your sprains, strains and fractures includes proper diagnosis and treatment. As the initial symptoms of a strain, sprain, and smaller fracture may appear similar, it is imperative to get to your orthopedic specialist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Arthroscopy/ Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopy is used to further diagnose and treat damaged joint areas through a less invasive surgical procedure, including rotator cuff repairs and meniscul repairs. The recovery time for arthroscopic surgery is usually less than more invasive procedures and has less downtime. Dr. Barr is affiliated with Virtua, Jefferson and South Jersey Surgical Centers.

Hand Surgery & Carpal Tunnel

Carpal Tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on your median nerve resulting in pain and/or numbness that can lead to weakness, damage, and loss of ability. Non-invasive treatments like braces may be used to relieve some of the symptoms while an often-quick, outpatient surgery is often used in severe cases.

Surgical Reconstruction

Dr. Barr is skilled in the highly specialized field of reconstructive orthopedic surgery. Reconstructive surgery for orthopedics involves the surgical reconstruction and re-building of a part of the musculoskeletal system that may be too damaged for other types of repairs, including ACL Reconstruction.

Need-For-Treatment & Permanency Exams

In New Jersey, Need-for-Treatment Exams are often required to be eligible to receive treatment and assistance. In the case of Permanency Exams, Dr. Barr is skilled at determining the degree of disability. Dr. Barr has successfully trained and practiced in these types of evaluations.

Independent Medical Evaluations/ Second Options

In many cases, insurance companies need a qualified orthopedic specialist to review treatment profiles and complete independent medical evaluations (IMEs). Dr. Barr takes the time to thoroughly review each patient’s records and examine the patient to determine if the right course of action is being taken.
