Those days pitching shut-outs on the high school baseball field are taking their toll. As are hours on the computer, the tennis court, the sewing machine or any other repetitive actions that have worn down the amazing mechanics of the shoulders, the elbows, the arms and the hands.
New, very effective treatments ranging from therapy to surgery provide relief for those of all ages suffering joint, tendon and other pain in the upper extremities.
This specialized care is available at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, winner of Healthgrades 2014 Distinguished Hospitals Award, named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals in the nation for orthopedics and recognized nationally for excellent nursing.
Jonathan Oheb, M.D., an orthopedic hand and upper extremity specialist, has just joined the medical staff at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center and is partnering in practice with Ramin Ganjianpour, M.D., a long-time member of the hospital staff.
“So many people suffer with chronic pain in their hands and arms, pain that can be treated effectively,” Dr. Oheb said. “If surgery is necessary, we offer the latest non-invasive procedures to have you quickly back to doing the things you like to – or need to – do.”
Dr. Oheb brings his expertise in problems from the shoulder to the fingertip, diagnosing and treating the entire spectrum of conditions. He provides reconstructive hand surgery, minimally invasive arthroscopic wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery and also evaluates, diagnoses and provides non-surgical treatments. His care includes follow-up therapy to ensure the best possible results.
“Dr. Oheb will expand the scope of orthopedic care here at Providence Holy Cross as we continue to build one of the finest centers of orthopedic excellence serving the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys,” said Bernard Klein, M.D., the hospital’s chief executive.
