Specializing in Minimally Invasive Shoulder Surgery Procedures
Specializing in the field of Orthopedic Surgery, Dr. Daines is prepared to treat a wide range of injuries to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, in either a non-surgical or surgical manner, resorting to surgery when all other treatment methods have been exhausted or ruled out. Additionally, Dr. Daines is trained to diagnose a range of musculoskeletal conditions, such as fractures or sprains.
Minimally invasive shoulder surgery procedures require only a small incision or the insertion of an instrument into a shoulder area. This involves minimal damage of body tissue. This technique allows patients to optimally recover from surgery, resulting in better patient outcomes and faster recovery to their normal daily activities.
Dr. Daines has long roots in the Treasure Valley, following in the footsteps of his father Joseph G. (Pete) Daines, MD and Joseph G. Daines, MD, his grandfather, in practicing orthopedics here.
