Syracuse Area Health – Strasburger Orthopaedics

What Makes Dr. Scott Strasburger’s Approach So Unique?

At Strasburger Orthopaedics – Syracuse Area Health, you’ll find so much more than just an orthopaedic surgical practice. For years, Dr. Strasburger has been practicing medicine, refining his approach, and discovering ways to blend traditional surgical approaches with leading-edge technology and holistic treatment options for a balanced approach to healthcare.

A background in athletics

A former Husker, Dr. Strasburger has strong roots in Nebraska’s sports history. His time as an athlete gave him a strong sense of obligation to other people who love sports participation. This led him to a dual specialty as an orthopaedic surgeon and a sports medicine practitioner.

Today, Dr. Strasburger’s patients range from young athletes who are still growing and striving towards peak performance, to seniors looking forward to an active lifestyle in their golden years. His focus on tailoring treatment to the patient drives positive outcomes and long-term results.

Our sports outreach and athletic training program help ensure those engaging in youth sports are protected and promptly treated in case of injury. 

Expertise in the operating room

When surgery is the right answer to a patient’s problem, Dr. Strasburger has a range of options available. Arthroscopic surgery can be used in many instances to reduce trauma to a joint and restore functionality with minimal downtime and discomfort.

For knee replacements, one of the most invasive surgeries, Dr. Strasburger leverages the capabilities of the CORI◊ robotics-assisted surgical system. This groundbreaking approach to knee surgery maps the patient’s knee accurately, so the implant can be chosen that most closely matches the patient’s original knee structure.

With the added precision provided by this system, placement of the implant requires less trauma to surrounding tissues than traditional surgery, leading to faster healing and ultimately a greater range of motion. Dr. Strasburger was one of the first physicians in the state to train with CORI◊, and remains one of the only surgeons in Lincoln offering the option.

Supplemental treatments 

In addition to his skill as a surgeon, Dr. Strasburger also has embraced the forward-thinking side of medicine, drawing on regenerative therapies to provide minimally invasive options for patients in discomfort or recovering from orthopaedic surgery.

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is created from the patient’s own blood, by putting it through a centrifuge to isolate and concentrate powerful platelets and growth factors. When these are injected into the site of discomfort or injury, the body’s natural healing processes are shifted into high gear for faster recovery.

For postoperative knee discomfort, Dr. Strasburger also offers iovera°, a cryotherapy injection he can administer before surgery to help “freeze away” postoperative discomfort for an easier healing process.
