Our physicians are committed to providing you with the latest treatment options and medical options for the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries.
Not all patients who see an orthopedic surgeon will require surgery, but if surgery is the best treatment method for you, we will take the time to educate you on the risks and benefits of the procedure(s) you need. Our goal is to help you return to your daily activities as quickly and safely as possible. We will explain what signs and symptoms to watch for and what you can do to prevent problems from occurring. Becoming an active partner in your care will help you develop a partnership with your orthopedic team and help you become as independent as possible.
Our rehabilitation services include physical therapy as an essential part of the recovery process after orthopedic surgery. Physical therapists work with patients to develop exercise and rehab programs customized to their needs. The program includes exercises to improve range of motion for patients who have had joint replacement surgeries, as well as strengthening exercises for the muscles surrounding the joint. You will also be trained in daily-life activities for recovery.
