From high school athletes, to weekend warriors, to those suffering from arthritis, Dr. Garvin Yee is who patients turn to for elbow, shoulder, and knee pain treatments.
Dr. Yee is a dual board-certified orthopedic surgeon with expertise in sports medicine and knee arthritis and has been practicing at The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery of the Palm Beaches for 27 years. He has also been named a Castle Connolly “Top Doctor” since 2008.
He focuses his practice on minimally invasive procedures through the use of arthroscopic surgery and non-surgical therapies including aquatic therapy, customized bracing, and viscosupplementation (gel) arthritis injections, which alleviate pain associated with arthritis in the knees.
Dr. Yee has expertise in regenerative biologics including PRP (platelet-rich plasma), cytokine therapy, and is a consultant for CBD management options.
Dr. Yee also offers state-of-the-art, minimally invasive radiofrequency TOPAZ treatments for those suffering from tennis elbow. The procedure doesn’t require a lot of downtime and does not require the patient to wear a cast or brace.
He works alongside 12 other orthopedic specialists who offer a variety of services including total hip and knee joint replacement, hand surgery, and foot and ankle surgery. The practice has offices in Royal Palm Beach, Wellington, Belle Glade, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, and Port St. Lucie.
“Teamwork is important,” says Dr. Yee. “When patients come to us, they know they have the support of a group of skilled professionals to help get them back on their feet.”
