My staff and I at the Nebraska Hand & Shoulder Institute, P.C. believe that prevention and elimination of painful or debilitating conditions of the upper and lower extremities can consistently be achieved. Our success is made by a strong effort at patient education via frequently updated brochures, video and verbal instruction, and ongoing clinical outcomes research. We bring these services to you for sports injury, fracture, nerve entrapment and arthritis at four convenient locations across Nebraska.
Efforts by my staff and I in improving outcomes have led to offering a host of the least invasive, minimally uncomfortable treatment options. These are rarely offered elsewhere for problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome (endoscopic carpal tunnel release), tennis elbow (percutaneous elbow tenotomy), trigger finger (percutaneous A-1 pulley release), Dupuytren's contracture (percutaneous fascial band release), wrist arthritis and painful wrist instability (percutaneous wrist denervation) along with a variety of arthroscopic procedures for the shoulder, knee, and wrist.
In fact, Dr. Ichtertz was among the first involved in arthroscopic meniscal repair (1984), arthroscopic wrist surgery (1986) and has been doing arthroscopic shoulder surgery since 1985. You have come to the right site. Dr. Ichtertz has broad-based experience with the most modern techniques for common and unusual problems of the upper and lower extremities. We have the only pressure-specified sensory device in the state of Nebraska to help in the diagnosis and treatment of tarsal tunnel syndrome, particularly in diabetics. Total joint replacement for arthritis of the major joints of the body is also offered.
