What Do General Orthopedic Surgeons Treat?

Your Hands

The hands, similar to your feet, are a base of everything we do. From working to sipping that morning cup of coffee, our hands allow us to perform tasks that range from simple to complex. Degeneration and pain can bring our lives to a screeching halt and that’s where we come in. Alleviating pain and restoring normal function are main focuses that determine course of treatment.

Your Hips

The hip joint connects the pelvis with the legs. It is a ball and socket joint with the ball on top of the femur (thigh bone) and the socket in the pelvis. It allows for twisting, bending, and back and forth motions. Reaching down to the floor and putting on your socks and shoes require a nearly normal range of motion of the hips.

Walking, running, and most other upright activities can be painful if the hip is damaged, and even sitting for long periods and sleeping can be disrupted by a diseased hip. Strong muscles connecting the pelvis to the femur power the hip joint and are also subject to injury. Ongoing research into hip joint mechanics and various injuries is leading to more options for treating this large and important joint.

Your Knees

The knee is a complex, hinge-like joint. With support from cartilage, ligaments, and muscles, the two bones at the joint move over each other so you can straighten and bend your leg. In a healthy knee, the surfaces of the thigh and shinbones are smooth and lubricated by joint fluid so they can roll, rotate, and glide easily over each other. Cartilage covers the bones evenly, allowing smooth movement. Protected by the kneecap and held in place by muscles and ligaments the joint bends freely.

Your Shoulders

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and is the most dependent on soft tissue balance for stability. Trauma or age-related degeneration can cause pain or disability in any part of the shoulder. Treatment of shoulder pathology, ranging from physical therapy to surgical reconstruction, is often successful in relieving pain and restoring function.

The shoulder girdle is composed of three joints and one articulation:

  • Sternoclavicular joint
  • Acromioclavicular joint
  • Glenohumeral joint (the shoulder joint)
  • Scapulothoracic articulation

General Orthopedic Physicians

"Although my ailment had been bothering me over a week, it turned out to be pretty much insignificant. But it was enough of a concern for me to find the root of my foot pain. I was treated by the staff, technicians and physicians as though it was highly important. The time spent with me and the care I received was beyond expectation. ROC came highly recommended, and I can understand why. Thank you for your undivided attention and expertise. It meant the world to me."
