Orthopedics is a medical specialty focusing on injuries and diseases of your musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. The scope of orthopedic care includes careful assessments and expert diagnoses of musculoskeletal problems. It is an essential branch of medicine that helps people get back in motion, restore function, and reduce pain caused by bone or joint disorders.
Our specialists will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your needs. While Orthopedic care can encompass various treatments, from minor injuries such as strains, sprains, and muscle tears, each injury and situation needs to be handled with individualized care. We also serve more extensive cases involving sports injuries, joint replacements, or fracture repairs; recommendations for non-invasive treatments such as physical therapy; advanced medical technology and surgery when necessary; and follow-up care to help ensure optimal recovery. Regardless of your needs, our specialists deliver ideal treatment plans that cater to you and the quickest recovery possible.
Hand and upper extremity orthopedic services include a variety of specialized treatments and procedures to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate, and manage conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. These services range from casting and splinting to reconstructive surgery (such as carpal tunnel release) and prosthetic fitting for amputations.
Our Orthopedic specialists create and use patient-tailored treatment plans suited for individual injury needs. Some comprehensive assessments include x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds, MRIs, and physical exams. These assessments help evaluate further treatment steps, medication management, therapy (occupational or physical), custom bracing/splint fabrication, or other surgical interventions.
Lower extremity orthopedic services can provide specialized treatment for conditions of the foot, ankle, knee, and hip joints, such as arthritis, bursitis, tendon tears, ligament injuries, cartilage damage, and more.
These services can also help with chronic conditions like plantar fasciitis and sprains, as well as acute injuries from sports and other physical activities. Experienced orthopedic specialists use advanced treatments and technologies to diagnose the root cause of a patient’s lower extremity issue and create a personalized plan for managing pain, improving mobility, and restoring function.
Joint replacement surgery has become a viable option for many people suffering from chronic joint pain due to conditions such as arthritis and osteoarthritis, providing them with a chance to reduce their discomfort while restoring their range of motion and function. By replacing damaged joint components with artificial ones, surgeons can return patients to an active lifestyle they may have thought was no longer possible. The procedure is becoming increasingly common, frequently done by experienced orthopedic teams in modern medical facilities, utilizing state-of-the-art techniques and cutting-edge materials to give individuals the most successful outcomes possible.
