Restoring mobility and keeping our nation in motion
We all know someone who has been stopped in his or her tracks by bone, muscle or joint pain. Musculoskeletal conditions and pain affect people at any time and any age, keeping people of all ages from working or enjoying life. The good news is that everyone—from the child with scoliosis to the person with traumatic injuries requiring limb-saving surgery—can benefit from the expertise of an orthopaedic surgeon. There are treatment options that help people lead happier and more productive lives.
Unitas Hospital Orthopedic Surgeon – WHAT IS AN ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON?
Orthopaedic surgeons are devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles.
Some orthopaedists are generalists, while others specialize in certain areas of the body, such as:
- Hip and knee
- Foot and ankle
- Shoulder and elbow
Unitas Hospital Orthopedic Surgeon – WHO ARE OUR PATIENTS?
Orthopaedic surgeons treat patients of all ages— from newborns to the elderly. We treat conditions that include sports injuries and joint replacement to fractures and spinal deformity.
WHAT DOES AN ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON TREAT?
Orthopaedic surgeons explore nonsurgical options first, such as pain medication or rehabilitation. They also have the expertise to perform surgery to repair an injury or correct a condition, if necessary.
Musculoskeletal pain is the number one reason why people visit their doctors each year.
Many people know that orthopaedic surgeons treat broken bones, and replace painful joints, but did you know that orthopaedic surgeons also treat patients for these problems?
- Sports injuries
- Back pain, ruptured disks and spinal stenosis
- Bone tumors
- Carpal tunnel, hand arthritis and hand injuries
- Club foot, bow legs and hip dysplasia
- Orthopaedic trauma
- Limb lengthening
- Achilles tendon injuries, bunions and foot and ankle injuries
WHY CHOOSE AN ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON?
An orthopaedic surgeon is an expert with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and both non-surgical and surgical treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS ARE COMMITTED TO YOU AND TO PROVIDING HIGH-QUALITY CARE
