Advanced treatment, the latest technology and least invasive techniques

About Dr. Mcglowan

Fellowship trained in arthroscopy and adult/adolescent sports medicine including patients with open growth plates.

Our Mission is to offer the most advanced treatment, latest technology, and the least invasive techniques in the field of sports medicine. In the past 16 years, I have performed over 6,000 successful arthroscopic joint procedures, 2000 reconstructive fracture procedures and 1,300 hip, knee and shoulder replacements.

I have treated over 100 Division I athletes and athletes on scholarships post reconstructive surgery.  My patients have included Olympic-trial athletes, athletes pursuing the NFL, NBA and WNBA, bodybuilders, fitness and bikini models, and minor league players. This includes patients from multiple countries worldwide.

Our Services

We specialize in the following:

We offer a full spectrum of medical care for active people of all ages and fitness levels. This includes gender-specific, minimally invasive hip and knee replacements, orthopaedias, arthroscopy (shoulder, knee, ankle, and elbow), and pediatric/adolescent sports medicine. Our facilities include comprehensive X-ray, MRI and ultrasound services.

In addition, we specialize in MAKOplasty, an advanced surgical procedure developed by the MAKO Surgical Corporation for partial knee or total hip arthroplasty. It uses a robotic arm called “RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System” to perform minimally invasive surgery.

Science Makes a Difference

We use titanium instead of stainless steel because it is both osteoinductive and osteocompatible. It also stimulates healing immediately the day of surgery for fracture care.

All implants for shoulder reconstructive procedures are bio- composite, with a composition similar to real bone. We perform double row fixation and triple loaded anchors for triple tendon repair. This makes it immediately stable.

Our autograft anterior cruciate ligament surgeries utilize double looped hamstrings (semitendinosis and gracilis) that can handle 4,000 Newtons compared to the native ACL procedure that only handles a force of 1,786 Newtons. This allows for a superior construct and result.

Many of our patients with proximal bicep tendon repairs return to full contact sports, such as black-belt karate, within eight weeks.
