What is an Orthopaedic Surgeon?
Orthopedic 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, Hand and Spine.
When to see an Orthopaedic Surgeon?
If you are having difficulty using a part of your body due to pain or stiffness, or if you have suffered any type of soft-tissue injury like muscle, tendon, or ligament that is not improving, an orthopedist can help you heal. This is the type of doctor who will have you feeling better and moving more efficiently as quickly as possible, without unnecessary tests or extra wait time.
Conditions Orthopedists Treat
Orthopedic surgeons treat all sorts of musculoskeletal issues, including Backache, Work injury, Sports injury, Pinched nerve, Arthritis, Strain (tendon or muscle injury), Sprain (ligament injury), Osteoporosis, Joint injury, Bone trauma and broken bones, Sciatica pain, Numbness or tingling sensations and loss of strength.
Orthopedic surgeons can perform total joint replacement, such as new hips, knees, and shoulders. Following some type of trauma, it is best to see an orthopedist rather quickly, before the body has a chance to create potentially debilitating scar tissue inside the injury.
Treatments Orthopedic Surgeons Use
In addition to performing surgery, orthopedists also use a variety of other methods – and they always try the least invasive technique possible. Orthopedic physicians can provide shots to help relieve aching joints and nerve ablation for pain.
They also may recommend physical therapy as a precursor to surgery, or for rehabilitation after it. A group orthopedic practice can also offer nurse practitioners and physician assistants who can help with prescriptions and can answer your questions.
