Orthopaedic Surgery Q & A

What is Orthopaedic Surgery?

Orthopaedics is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on injuries and diseases that affect your musculoskeletal system. This system allows your body to move, work, and engage in your favorite activities. The musculoskeletal system includes your bones, muscles, tendons, and other connective tissues that connect and stabilize your joints.

The team at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates helps patients of all ages — from young children who get hurt on the playground to college athletes to mature adults — recover from injuries and return to normal activities as quickly as possible.

What Does an Orthopaedic Surgeon Treat?

There are many kinds of injuries and diseases that can cause pain and limit your mobility. The expert team at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates specializes in diagnosing and treating a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Arthritis

Whether your pain is due to acute trauma, repetitive stress, or another condition, the skilled team at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates provides exceptional care.

What Procedures Does an Orthopaedic Surgeon Perform?

When you visit Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates, your provider spends time reviewing your medical history and evaluating your source of pain. Then, they develop a personalized treatment plan that best addresses your particular needs.

Just because you see an orthopaedic surgeon doesn’t necessarily mean your condition requires surgery. The team at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates always begins with the most conservative treatment. Depending on your particular needs, they may recommend one or more of the following nonsurgical treatments:

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
  • Medicines to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Therapeutic joint injections
  • Bracing and splinting
  • Physical therapy exercises

If your condition is severe or doesn’t improve with treatment, the team at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Associates may recommend surgery. They’re highly trained in the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical procedures, including:

  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Total and partial joint replacement
  • Tenex Health TX™ surgery
