Orthopedics & Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedics and orthopedic surgery is a specialty that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the bones and muscles. These can include sports injuries, or injuries from falls or other accidents. Our orthopedists also treat degenerative diseases, congenital (present since birth) diseases and infections. Our orthopedic surgery team performs joint replacement surgeries and repairs bony or muscular injuries. We offer both open and arthroscopic procedures, and are available to coordinate your care before, during and after surgery, including physical or occupational therapy rehabilitation if needed. Presbyterian’s orthopedists are available to provide a wide range of care for both adult and pediatric patients.
If you need to be seen quickly for orthopedic care, we can help.
