Orthopedic physicians specialize in treating problems specifically related to the musculoskeletal system – the body’s framework of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
Your evaluation will start with an examination and discussion of your condition with your orthopedic physician. Imaging Studies are often useful in diagnosing orthopedic problems. Your doctor may order a joint X-ray (arthrogram), bone scan, computed tomography (CT) scan, discography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Depending on the diagnosis, there are many treatment options available and physical therapy, medications, joint injections or even surgery may be recommended.
