What is orthopedics? What do Orthopedic Associates of Wisconsin 's orthopedic surgeons do?
Orthopedics is comprised of many subspecialties focused on the study and treatment of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves). Orthopedics is, in general, the study of chronic pain, rheumatic diseases, musculoskeletal injuries and arthritis. Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin is the largest provider of orthopedic specialty medicine in Wisconsin.
When Should You See An Orthopedic Specialist?
It can be confusing, deciding if you should visit your primary care physician or see an orthopedic specialist right away. If you have a traumatic or repetitive motion injury to a bone, joint, tendon or nerve, seeing an orthopedic specialist right away can help you on your way to a speedy recovery. If you are experiencing chronic hip pain, back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, cervical neck pain, hand pain, writs pain, elbow pain, foot pain or ankle pain, an orthopedic specialist can be an integral part of your treatment.
If you have any questions on when to visit an orthopedic specialist, contact you primary doctor or give Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin a call: 262-303-5055. All physicians at Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin are fellowship trained in specialty orthopedics, are Board Certified or Board Eligible, and have advanced training in their respective fields, including arthroscopic, reconstructive, and fractural surgeries. We are dedicated to using progressive treatment techniques in the most efficient ways, with the ultimate goal of restoring patients to their highest possible levels of orthopedic functioning.
