We all know someone who has been stopped in his or her tracks by bone, muscle or joint pain.
Musculoskeletal conditions and pain affect people at any time and any age, keeping people of all ages from working or enjoying life. The good news is that everyone—from the child with scoliosis to the person with traumatic injuries requiring limb-saving surgery—can benefit from the expertise of an orthopaedic surgeon. There are treatment options that help people lead happier and more productive lives.
What is Orthopaedics
Orthopaedics is a large area within medicine which concentrates on concerns with injuries and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system (the bones, ligaments, tendons, joints nerves and muscles) which is why they need ‘super-specialists’ who concentrate on just one area within a specialty.
Healthy joints and bones are extremely important to us as active individuals, allowing us to do the basic movements such as walking, running and jumping. We offer this service of healthcare because we understand that having healthy joints is vital to maintaining an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
