Orthopedic Surgery

About Orthopedic Surgery

Musculoskeletal problems affect many Americans. These conditions, which involve the muscles, bones, and joints of the body all come under the umbrella of orthopedic conditions. Musculoskeletal problems can arise from a wide range of different causes, including sports or workplace-related accidents and injuries, degenerative conditions, or, in some instances, they can be present at birth.

How it Works

Orthopedic conditions can be problematic and, if left untreated, may lead to disabilities that inhibit a person’s ability to perform day-to-day tasks, such as washing the dishes, cooking dinner or even having a comfortable walk. These conditions can even impact a person’s ability to be productive at work.

For these reasons, it is important to properly care for your musculoskeletal system and, when something goes wrong, to have the problem promptly and expertly diagnosed and treated. If you have a musculoskeletal condition and have not been able to obtain relief through conservative treatment, surgery could be an option or, depending on the severity of the condition, it might become a necessity in order to prevent the condition from progressing and causing irreversible nerve or organ damage.
