Our Services


Orthopedic doctors and surgeons are highly skilled medical professionals dedicated to the care of your musculoskeletal system, which encompasses your bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, and tendons. Their specialization lies in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries commonly associated with sports or physical activities. They employ a diverse array of diagnostic tools, including X-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRI scans, to accurately assess your condition. While orthopedic practitioners possess comprehensive knowledge of the entire musculoskeletal system, they often focus their expertise on specific areas of the body. Therefore, a treatment plan addressing both ankle and back issues may necessitate consultations with two distinct specialists.

Hand and Upper Extremities

A complex system of joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels within the arms, wrist, and hand. Many conditions don’t require surgery, but in cases where procedures are necessary can be performed with local anesthetics.



Treatments include nonoperative recommendations, such as injections, medications, weight loss plans, and exercise. Surgical intervention, often joint replacement surgery, may be needed if these areas are sufficiently worn-out.


Orthopedic Trauma

The management of broken bones, often due to high-energy impacts such as a car accident or low-energy impacts with conditions like osteoporosis. Treatments include plates and screws or surgical intervention to heal the bone.
