General Orthopaedic Medicine & Surgery
General Orthopaedic Surgery refers to the medical non-operative and operative treatment of the musculoskeletal system - bones, tendons, ligaments, joints and cartilage of the body. This includes urgent care of sprains and fractures to chronic care of arthritis.
The diagnosis of orthopaedic problems is based on the history & physical examination, possibly radiology studies, and an overview of the entire patient including other diseases and medications. Treatment varies based on the diagnosis, but the vast majority of patients never need surgery.
General Orthopaedic Surgery includes subcategories such as musculoskeletal health, osteoporosis, sports medicine, dance medicine, workman's compensation injuries, aches & pains, bumps, bruises, arthritis treatment, sprains, exercise physiology, cartilage restoration, orthobiologics and regenerative medicine. Other subcategories are determined by region of the body, such as hip, knee, foot ankle, hand & wrist, shoulder, neck and back. Whether you are active or sedentary, young or old, weekend warrior or professional dancer, construction worker or a computer analyst, military dependent or embassy employee, CEO or dog walker, chef or waiter - all patients need orthopaedic care at some time. Individualized, compassionate, comprehensive personal care is at the core of our treatment. Conservative and holistic measures are always given priority over any surgical recommendations.
