Whether an injury is related to home, work or recreation, the return of efficient function is crucial. We use the most recent advances in diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
Our orthopedic physicians are dedicated to the care of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and nerves. Orthopedists are medical doctors who have had five years of additional training in this specialty area. The orthopedist can perform surgery for those conditions that require it, but the practice of orthopedics involves much more than surgery.
Orthopedists treat people of all ages to restore functions lost from disease or injury, to correct birth abnormalities and to educate patients in the prevention of injury and disease. There are many forms of treatment, including casting, exercise, medications and surgery.
Injuries to the limbs, advanced arthritis and injuries from repetitive activities (recreational or work related) receive prompt attention through nonoperative, operative and reconstructive procedures. Orthopedists also care for the severely injured patient and can correct deformities caused by trauma. The following are examples of concerns handled by our orthopedists:
- Hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders
- Hips and knees
- Feet and ankles
- Sports injuries
- Joint replacement
- Broken bones, sprains and strains
