What is general orthopedics?

General orthopedics focuses on the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions – disorders and injuries affecting the:

  • Joints
  • Bones
  • Cartilage
  • Muscles

  • Tendons
  • Nerves
  • Spine

Why might I need general orthopedic services?

General orthopedics covers a broad range of conditions affecting every part of the musculoskeletal system. Problems you might need to visit Rogozinski Orthopedic Clinic about include:

Joint pain

Osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, and other forms of arthritis frequently cause chronic joint pain. You might have an overuse injury that’s led to tendinitis or bursitis or suffer an acute injury like a dislocation, torn cartilage, or sprained ligament.

Fractures

Broken bones are a common reason for needing general orthopedic services. There are different ways in which bones can break, from stable fractures that just require a cast or splint to severe comminuted or compound fractures where the bones shatter into multiple pieces or break through the skin.

Sprains and strains

Strains are injuries to the tendons, connective tissues that attach muscles to bones. Sprains affect the ligaments, which connect bones to other bones in your joints.

Common conditions of this type include Achilles tendon strains and ankle sprains, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprains in the knee, and rotator cuff tears in the shoulder.

Back and neck pain

Back pain and neck pain are common problems that can be due to acute injuries like whiplash or chronic conditions such as arthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

What treatments does general orthopedics use?

Every patient at Rogozinski Orthopedic Clinic has an individual treatment plan tailored to their condition, age, activity levels, general health, and other such factors. 

Unless you require urgent surgery to repair a traumatic injury, your treatment plan is likely to contain conservative approaches like physical therapy, medication, and activity modification.

If your condition doesn’t improve with these treatments, you might need more advanced interventions such as:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Joint injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation

General orthopedic surgeons can perform specialized operations for the few patients who don’t respond to non-surgical treatments. 

Common types of surgery include partial or total joint replacement, ligament reconstruction, tendon repair, corrective surgery for abnormalities like scoliosis and flatfeet, fracture repair, and various types of spine surgery.
