Orthopaedic Medicine | Spine Care | Pain Management
In parallel with its literal translation that suggests that this field is limited to ‘straightening of legs’, orthopaedics covers all activities involving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system constituted of the bones, cartilages, joints, tendons and ligaments, muscles and other connective tissues.
With reference to the operation of the musculoskeletal system, some of the most common musculoskeletal conditions handled by field of orthopaedics include arm, elbow, hips, hands, foot and spinal injuries, hemophilia, arthritis, and bone cancer. These musculoskeletal conditions usually result from several agencies such as birth deformities, prolonged and continuous stress (from sports and other occupation), traumatic incidents (such as accidents), infection, and aging.
To cater for these musculoskeletal conditions irrespective of their source and severity, the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery has vetted specific forms of orthopaedic care including: sport medicine, Joint Replacement and Surgery in Arthritis, orthopedic surgery (hand, shoulders, elbow, and spine), arthroscopy, musculoskeletal oncology, medical rehabilitation, trauma and fracture orthopedics, and pediatric orthopedics. These forms of orthopedic care are targeted to specific musculoskeletal conditions and specific patient categories.
South Florida’s Orthopaedic and Spine Care Treatment
Patients at Florida OrthoCare can expect three interconnected categories as part of the care treatment including:
- patient assessment
- medical interventions
PATIENT ASSESSMENT IN ORTHOPAEDICS AND SPINE CARE:
A wide range of techniques are employed in orthopedic treatments to diagnose the nature and severity of the musculoskeletal condition, as well as the patient’s medical history. These techniques would cover well-structured interviews, urine and blood examinations, x-ray, MRI and CT scans, and in the case where a bone cancer or tumor is identified, a biopsy is undertaken as an additional step in the patient assessment procedure.
MEDICAL INTERVENTIONS IN ORTHOPAEDICS AND SPINE CARE:
It is our goal at Florida OrthoCare to proactively introduce orthopedic intervention to reduce the pain from the musculoskeletal condition, enhance the mobility of the body part affected, and support the performance of activities daily life for affected patients.
