Dr. Alpert's particular specialty is the evaluation and treatment of patients with knee and shoulder pain. When conservative measures can be applied successfully to avoid surgery, Dr. Alpert will recommend an individualized treatment plan that may include physical therapy, cortisone injections, lubricant injections, and/or PRP therapy. If surgery is determined to be necessary, Dr. Alpert commonly performs the following procedures:
-Knee arthroscopy including treatment of the meniscus, cartilage, and ACL.
-Shoulder arthroscopy including treatment of the labrum and rotator cuff.
-Shoulder replacement including total shoulder and reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
Regardless of the treatment plan or surgery, Dr. Alpert’s primary goal is always to return his patients to their regular activities and a pain-free lifestyle as quickly as possible.
