Orthopedic Specialties & Conditions

Orthopedic doctors play a vital role in helping our bodies get back to their normal functions when they are broken or injured. With expertise in how to repair and treat important muscles, tendons, and joints in the body, orthopedic doctors are well-versed in helping patients get their muscles back into working condition.

Although therapists and pain management specialists can help patients get their injured muscles, tendons, and joints back to normal, orthopedic doctors and surgeons have the ability to diagnose, treat, and perform surgery on any torn, sprained, or hurt muscle of the body. At OALI, our highly-experienced team of orthopedic physicians draws from decades in practice to provide patients with the help, support, and tools they need to help their body get back to its normal state - free from pain.

At OALI, our orthopedic surgeons are proud to provide treatments for a wide range of conditions.

Hand & Upper Extremity

The hands, wrists, fingers, elbows, and arms are all parts of the body that go through a lot during a person’s day-to-day life. With all the activity we do with our hands and upper extremities, it’s easy for people to experience pain, soreness, or weakness over time, but at OALI we’re able to provide treatment for any of the following:


Shoulder pain can be one of the most challenging cases to treat. Many people carry a lot of tension in their shoulders and experience pain even when their shoulders or arms are in a resting state. While our surgeons are open to exploring non-surgical options such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory injections, and lifestyle changes with you before operating, they do offer surgical treatment for the following shoulder conditions:


The hips are a vital part of the body. Acting as the main bridge between the legs and the torso, hip pain can affect not only your lower back but also your legs. Pain in this area of the body may become serious enough that it hurts the patient to sit, stand, or walk. However, with the right treatments, it’s possible to get the hips functioning without pain. We provide treatments for the following hip conditions:


Healing a damaged knee involves precision and patience. With highly-qualified surgeons to help, patients with knee pain or those who are recovering from a knee injury will be able to seek treatment for the following conditions after consulting with your surgeon about nonsurgical options that may still help improve knee function.

Foot & Ankle

Because our feet and ankles hold the weight of our entire bodies, it’s important to resolve any issues that cause pain in these muscles. This healing process can be difficult, but not impossible. From physical therapy or healing arthritis to ankle replacements or tendon surgery, our foot & ankle specialists provide first-rate treatment and care for the following conditions:

sports medicine img

Sports medicine is a subspecialty of orthopaedics that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered during athletic activity. The goal of treatment is to heal and rehabilitate injuries so patients can quickly return to their athletic activities. Participating in sports places wear-and-tear on the body, and can lead to orthopaedic injuries. Athletes are susceptible to injuries that include stress fractures and chronic pain, as well as tearing or stretching of internal structures. Treatment for these conditions can involve surgery, orthotics, physical therapy and rest.

concussion img 1

A concussion is a common type of brain injury most often caused by a direct blow to the head or sudden head movement that causes temporary brain malfunction. When the head is hit unexpectedly, the brain can move and hit the skull, affecting memory, judgment, reflexes, speech, balance and coordination. A concussion may also be caused by a sports related injury, a motor vehicle accident or from being violently shaken. Most concussions are considered mild injuries, and people usually fully recover from this condition.

*IMPORTANT: Our practice will not be offering acupuncture services until further notice.

Practiced by Chinese healers for more than 5,000 years, acupuncture is a type of holistic medicine designed to facilitate the proper flow of Qi (ch'i), the life-giving energy that travels through the body's pathways (meridians). By helping Qi to move unimpeded through the meridians, acupuncture provides nourishment to all of the body's cells, muscles, organs, glands and tissues. During an acupuncture session, fine needles are inserted into the body at specific points along the meridians to break up blockages and restore a full, healthy flow of Qi.

Patient Testimonials:

"Thank you to Dr. Petraco for performing my first ever surgery and making it a seamless and near painless experience. My new hip has been a game changer in terms of mobility and pain free walking. After spending 30 plus years working in healthcare, I did my homework on orthopedic surgeons and I can wholeheartedly say Dr. Petraco is the wise choice for a successful joint replacement procedure"

"Dr. Harary is one of the best doctors ive ever been too, he personally makes a bond with each patient so he can truly understand them. Ive had shoulder problems for months now and every other doctor told me it was nothing or to just take advil. Well turns out i potentially have a torn labrum, would have never know this if it wasnt for Dr. Harary and his diligent work. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Harary for any medical needs that he specializes in."

"Dr. Gamez is absolutely amazing. I could not say enough to express how I feel about him. He is compassionate, thorough, listens, and makes the most informed decisions based on what is best for the patient. There is no other doctor that I would recommend for your orthopedic needs. Not only is he amazing but his staff is just as attentive and caring. There is no one else I would entrust with my ankle!!"
