Patient Education and Information

Orthopaedics is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves that allow you to move, work and be active.

Many conditions can lead to the need for treatment from an orthopaedic surgeon, the most common of these being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Since there are many options available for treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, you need to be informed of these options to lessen the fear of seeking treatment for any of these conditions. Our highest recommendation is to seek the medical advice of a physician who alone, after an appropriate physical examination, can give you appropriate advice about your medical condition.
