Orthopaedic surgeons specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries and diseases related to the musculoskeletal system. They provide specialized care to patients who suffer from various conditions such as fractures, trauma, arthritis or other chronic conditions, and sports injuries. At Ortho Louisville, our specialists use a variety of diagnostic tools, including X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans, to accurately diagnose the patient’s condition and develop an effective treatment plan to meet their individual needs. Orthopaedic surgeons generally recommend non-surgical treatments before commencing any surgical procedures. Some conditions can be treated or healed nonsurgically when utilizing things like physical therapy, regenerative medicine techniques, and even exercise and lifestyle changes. Our orthopaedic surgeons practice in a variety of subspecialties including: spine surgery, knee and hip surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, hand and wrist or foot and ankle surgery, along with joint replacement surgery and more. The importance of orthopaedic care cannot be overstated, as it can significantly improve the patient’s quality of life and allow them to resume their normal activities.
