Orthopedic Surgeon Q & A

Why do I need an orthopedic surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon is your go-to practitioner if you suffer from any kind of injury or trauma, including sports, workplace, automobile accident, or personal injuries. Orthopedic surgeons can diagnose and treat any of the following conditions (to name a few):

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Broken bones and stress fractures
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Meniscus tears 
  • Ankle sprains 
  • Arthritis 

Building a relationship with a dedicated orthopedic surgeon is essential not just for pain relief and immediate treatment, but also to help you heal and get back to 100%. Your orthopedic surgeon helps you prevent future injuries or re-injuries as much as possible.
