/ How Our Orthopedic Specialty Centers of Excellence Can Help You
Our general orthopedic doctors are important members of many of our centers of excellence, from our Foot & Ankle Center to our Sports Medicine Center and Joint Replacement Center. Having dedicated their practices to treating injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, our orthopedic specialists provide valuable knowledge and expertise to the foundations of our centers and provide patients with expert education and care.
When you visit any one of our centers of excellence, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest level of specialized care. Our orthopedists not only offer the latest evidence-based treatments but also perform advanced orthopedic surgeries.
To provide an accurate diagnosis of your musculoskeletal problem, our doctors will perform an evaluation and run diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, to help determine the cause. Once you have been diagnosed, our orthopedic specialists will work together to formulate an individualized treatment plan that utilizes nonsurgical treatment options first instead of recommending surgery. These treatments may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, or an additional medical treatment option. If the conservative treatment options are ineffective at providing relief, our orthopedic surgeons will develop a surgical plan that is right for you.
If surgery is recommended for you, our orthopedic surgeons are some of the most highly skilled surgeons and offer a broad range of orthopedic surgeries. This includes the following surgeries and procedures:
- Foot and ankle reconstruction
- Joint replacement surgery, including hip replacement and knee replacement
- Ligament reconstruction
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Surgical fracture care
