There are a wide range of mobility problems, caused by loss of a limb, genetic conditions, or injury. Limited mobility can be a serious challenge for individuals who are attempting to live their best life, as they may experience pain, reduced limb function and more. While many mobility issues can be solved through orthotics and physical therapy, there are times when orthopedic surgery is the best option for treating loss of mobility. See how a trusted orthopedic surgeon can help restore function and allow individuals to more fully participate in life.
The Focus of Orthopedic Surgeons
Orthopedic surgeons are medical doctors who have taken the additional steps involved in learning to diagnose, treat and prevent conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. These doctors specialize not only in surgery but also in non-surgical treatments of patients for damage to muscles, tendons, bones, joints and ligaments.
