Orthopaedics Q & A

What is orthopaedic surgery?

Orthopaedic medicine focus on the diseases and injuries that affect your bones, muscles, and connective tissue. Orthopaedic specialists like Dr. Ani diagnose and treat musculoskeletal issues and provide customized treatment, including medication, physical therapy, immobilization, and more to help your body and rebuild strength and flexibility.

What are common orthopaedic health issues?

You have over 200 bones, around 700 muscles, and countless tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues in your body that hold everything together. With so many moving parts, there’s no wonder that there’s an equally long list of potential injuries and conditions that can cause musculoskeletal pain.

Some of the most common orthopaedic health issues include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Tendon and ligament tears
  • Bone fractures
  • Joint dislocation
  • Inflammatory conditions such as tendinitis and bursitis
  • Repetitive strain injuries

The most prevalent symptom of an orthopaedic condition is the pain. You may also experience swelling, bruising, stiffness, and reduced flexibility and mobility. If you experience any of these symptoms and they don’t subside after a day or two of rest, icing, and with the use of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, you should make an appointment with one of their orthopaedic surgeons for diagnosis and treatment.

What are the available orthopaedic treatments?

At Ani Medical Group, a comprehensive range of orthopaedic treatments from physical therapy and rehabilitation, to minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, and traditional open surgical procedures are employed.

The doctors may use various diagnostic studies such as X-rays, ultrasounds, CT and MRI scans to examine your bones, muscles, and connective tissue in combination with detailed physical exams to diagnose the specific injury or condition that’s causing your symptoms. Then, depending on your needs, a customized treatment plan is offered to both relieve your pain and heal your body that may include one or more of the following:

  • Medication
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Casting and immobilization
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Arthroscopic surgical procedures
  • Joint replacement for knees, hips, and shoulders
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
