Orthopedic care

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.

Orthopedic services at the Joint and Spine Center

From arthritis and chronic joint pain to surgery for osteoporosis and carpel tunnel, our skilled orthopedic surgeons are experienced in a wide range of surgical procedures.

Orthopedic treatment options

We will begin treatment with the safest and simplest options, such as rest or splinting. If your injury or illness is resulting from another treatable condition, such as diabetes or a hormone disorder, we may address that issue first to see if your health improves.

Other treatment options for orthopedic injuries and illnesses include:

  • Noninvasive pain management
  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Surgery

Arthroscopy

An arthroscope is an instrument that looks like a long tube with a miniature camera on the end. During an arthroscopy, the instrument is surgically guided to examine a joint. This minimally invasive procedure is performed to:

  • Diagnose an injury or disease
  • Remove bone or cartilage
  • Repair tendons or ligaments

Joint replacement

Joint replacement is a surgical operation. Parts of a damaged or arthritic joint are removed and replaced with a plastic, ceramic or metal device, referred to as a "prosthesis." The prosthesis is designed to give you the same range of motion as a healthy, normal joint.

Types of joint replacement surgery we perform include:

  • Knee replacement
  • Hip replacement
  • Shoulder replacement

Diagnostic services

Orthopedic care starts with imaging tests. For example, X-rays are commonly used to check for fractures or dislocations. We also offer advanced diagnostic exams, such as bone density tests, to detect osteoporosis and other serious conditions.
