Total Joint Replacement

Our goal in joint replacement is to relieve extreme pain caused by severe cartilage damage. This pain may be so severe, a person will avoid using his or her joint, thereby weakening the surrounding muscles and making it even more difficult to move. The extent of the damage to the patient's joint is determined after a physical examination and diagnostic testing, such as X-rays and MRIs. Total joint replacement will be considered if other, more conservative treatment options will not relieve the pain and disability.

Arthroscopic Surgery

Performing more knee arthroscopy than any other surgeon on the Upper Cape, Dr. Wilsterman is the go-to surgeon for this procedure in which he visualizes, diagnoses and treats joint injuries. Pencil-sized instruments are inserted through small incisions to magnify and illuminate the structures inside a joint. The arthroscope is attached to a miniature television camera which displays the joint on a monitor, allowing an examination of the cartilage and ligaments surrounding the bone. Dr. Wilsterman can then determine the amount or type of injury and repair or correct the problem, if it is necessary.

Sports Medicine

Dr. Wilsterman promotes lifelong fitness and wellness and encourages prevention of illness and injury. He helps the patient maximize function and minimize disability and time away from work, sports, school or active life. Dr. Wilsterman's team is an excellent resource for patients who want to become active or begin an exercise program. He applies the same expertise for the Weekend Warrior or the "Industrial Athlete", who works as hard as the star of any sports team.
