How An Orthopedic Surgeon Can Help You
Whether arthritis, back pain, sports injuries or overall stiffness, an orthopedic doctor from Southeast Orthopedic Specialists can help treat your pain and discomfort. An orthopedic surgeon is a medical professional that is dedicated to the diagnosing, treating, prevention and rehabilitation of injuries, diseases or disorders relating to the musculoskeletal system. This can include tendons, muscles, nerves, joints, ligaments and bones. Many orthopedists specialize in certain areas, making them more knowledgeable for specific injuries such as hand & wrist or foot & ankle.
We at Southeast Orthopedic Specialists treat patients of all ages. We believe in treating as many conditions as possible without surgery using medication, exercise and other alternative and/or rehabilitative treatments. If necessary, we can recommend surgical treatment for patients who don’t respond to other treatment types.
