At Orthopaedic & Spine Center, the majority of patients respond well to conservative care such as anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy. If a patient does not respond well or has a traumatic injury or disorder, surgery is a viable option to improve function and a return to the activities the patient enjoys. Not every patient is a candidate for surgery, but this is an option that should be discussed with your orthopedist when alternative treatments are unsuccessful.
Below is information about different types of orthopedic surgery, how to prepare and what to expect afterwards.
