Dr. Allan Adajar

Dr. Allan Adajar, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Dr. Allan Adajar, MD has dedicated a substantial portion of his training towards mastering advanced surgical techniques. His surgical training includes two years of General Surgery residency, completion of an OB/GYN residency in Chicago, IL, followed by a fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at one of the top institutions in the country, The Methodist Hospital of Houston, Texas. Dr. Adajar is a fellow of both the American college of Surgeons and the American College of OB/GYN.

AAGL, the leading association promoting minimally invasive gynecologic surgery among surgeons worldwide, has bestowed upon Dr. Allan Adajar the designation as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery.

Dr. Adajar is a pioneer in mini-laparoscopic techniques, with multiple publications and presentations given on a national level.

His pursuit to perform the painless hysterectomy, with the least amount of scarring, at a significantly reduced cost, serves as the foundation of his evolving technique

Suresh Nayak

Dr. Suresh Nayak

orthopedic surgeon

Dr Suresh Nayak has been striving for excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery since 1995. His practice involves Sports Medicine and Joint Replacement surgery. This includes arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. Surgeries include, for the hip: labral repair, FAI surgery. Shoulder: rotator cuff repair; instability reconstruction, SLAP lesion repair. Knee: meniscal repair, ligament reconstruction. Cartilage preservation procedures are also a keen interest.

In joint reconstruction, state of the art procedures such as Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement, Hip Resurfacing and Computer Navigated Total Knee Replacement are routine. Shoulder replacement surgery proceeds from Hemi-cap to Total Shoulder Replacement and includes the Reverse Ball and Socket, Delta prosthesis.These surgeries are married with the latest techniques in post surgery pain management protocols and with Implants that have proven longevity.

An injury to a tendon, ligament, muscle, bone, or joint can have a serious, negative impact on a patient’s life; but can be treated with a variety of therapies and procedures. Dr. Nayak is devoted to providing the best treatment plan to each and every patient, by exploring both non-surgical and surgical medical management of musculoskeletal injuries or diseases.
