WHEN

to seek a GENERAL ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON
There are a variety of symptoms that can occur that would require a general orthopedic surgeons' care. Pay attention to these symptoms so when you meet with one of our board certified doctors, you can provide them with detailed information regarding your pain.

  • Chronic pain

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Joint instability

  • Limited range of motion of the shoulder, knee, hip, or another joint

WHAT

to expect with our ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS
After a thorough assessment, which can include on-site imaging (including X-ray and MRI), our doctors will work with you to determine a customized course of treatment to best suite you. Our experts will always consider nonsurgical treatment before recommending surgery, such as medication, physical therapy with one of our certified physical therapists, and in-office regenerative medicine.
