Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the skeleton, joints, muscles, connective tissue and other supporting structures including ligaments and cartilage.
Our services include special centers for arthritis, bone cancer, spine disorders and sports injuries as well as services to treat conditions of the ankle and foot, hip and knee, shoulder and the special orthopedic conditions that affect children.
Treatments range from simple lifestyle changes to major surgeries, although the trend is toward non-invasive "arthroscopic" procedures performed through tiny incisions.
These are supplemented with services in pain management, physical therapy and orthopaedic devices such as braces and prosthetic limbs, providing a comprehensive approach to orthopaedic problems. In some cases, joint replacement of the hip, knee or shoulder may be the best suitable treatment.
