Practice Overview

The Orthopaedic & Spine Center (OSC) in Hampton Roads, Virginia, is a leading Knee clinic in the Virginia area. The center’s operating philosophy is to use state-of-the-art medical technology to bring old-fashioned care and comfort to its ever-growing list of satisfied patients. Robert J. Snyder, MD, a highly skilled board-certified knee surgeon at the OSC, actually lives this beneficial opposition — he’s an avid competitor on the fast-paced handball circuit and he’s a knee surgery patient, too.


Knee Care

Knowing knee surgery from both sides of the knife, Dr. Snyder quickly realized the benefits of a new line of knee replacement devices by ConforMIS and became a pioneer of the technology in the Virginia area. One of the major benefits of the ConforMIS product line is that each implant is designed individually and exclusively for the joint requiring surgery, which is, of course, opposite the standard practice in knee implants, which are mass produced so that one size theoretically fits all.

Not every patient experiencing knee pain or mobility problems requires surgery so the OSC offers a fully comprehensive line of treatment options in knee care. The OSC team will customize a treatment plan uniquely suited to address the needs of each patient. Whether knee problems are the result of injury or age, the OSC has a growing list of satisfied patients eagerly embracing a pain-free, active lifestyle they thought they’d never enjoy again.


OSC Knee Care Services

Some patients need no more than pain management medications to maintain the life they love. Others require physical therapy and perhaps knee surgery. The OSC works with all knee care patients to achieve maximum mobility no matter how extensive their care needs. Some services and surgeries offered at Virginia’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center include:

  • Advanced Knee Cartilage Treatment
  • Knee Arthroscopy
  • Knee Resurfacing
  • Partial Knee Replacement
  • Patellar Surgery
  • Revision of Total Knee
  • Total Knee Replacement Surgery
