Orthopedic surgery may be necessary for patients who have injuries or conditions in their musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled at delivering surgical and non-surgical treatment. Many musculoskeletal conditions are treated without surgery by using medication, exercise and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies. Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss your diagnosis and the orthopedic surgery services available to develop the best plan for your lifestyle.
Life-Enhancing Orthopedic Surgery Services
Thousands of people have successful orthopedic surgery each year to recover from injuries or to restore lost function. The degree of success depends on the patient’s age, general health, medical issue and willingness to comply with rehabilitative therapy after the surgery.
Generally, orthopedic surgeons implant screws, wires, pins, tongs or prosthetics in the body to properly align damaged bones or support connective tissue. As developments occur in the fields of metallurgy and plastics, increased sophistication will be reflected in orthopedic surgery services. Man-made materials will more closely resemble the natural functions of bones, joints and ligaments and should restore damaged parts to their original ranges of motion.
Our orthopedic surgery services are wide-ranging and provide treatment for a variety of diseases and conditions, including:
• Fractures and dislocations
