When you have a chronic condition that affects one or more of your joints, doing everyday activities can be difficult and painful. We see patients with arthritis, degenerative diseases and repetitive stress injuries of the knees, hips, elbows, wrists and shoulders. Our practice cares for people with conditions that could progress without the proper type of care.
In addition to caring for people with chronic disorders of the joints, we also help people who have an acute injury or trauma to a joint. Perhaps you slipped and fell, causing a fracture of your hip or knee. Maybe you were a weekend warrior and injured yourself while doing some intense sports activities. We offer a full range of treatments. Every patient is fully assessed with a physical exam and imaging studies as needed. We offer conservative care when it is an option. If conservative care is unlikely to help you with your problem, we offer orthopedic surgical services.
In addition to conservative care and orthopedic surgery, we also help you with physical therapy. Our orthopedic surgeon in Arlington Heightsoften refers patients for physical therapy as a means of providing an increased chance at a full recovery. After orthopedic surgery, physical therapy may help you to regain your strength, balance and range of motion.
Our staff is always available to answer any questions that you have about your plan of care. We include patients in the treatment plan, and you always have the final say in your course of treatment. Our doctors offer on-call services, so if you have a question at night, one of us can help.
