Learn About Orthopedic Surgery for Injuries

by | Nov 21, 2018 | Physical Therapy

Whether you are an athlete, a weekend warrior or someone who simply enjoys taking walks or bike rides for leisure, you could experience an orthopedic injury. Disorders and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle are treated by our orthopedic surgeons in Arlington Heights. We use surgery to treat orthopedic injuries and disorders when conservative treatments are either unfeasible or unsuccessful for the problem.

Our orthopedic surgeons help restore full functionality to major joints of the body. Whether your injury or disorder is a result of an anatomical feature, overuse, acute injury or something else, our physicians provide you with the best possible level of care. We help you return to your favorite activities after your surgery, physical therapy and post-operative care.

When you come to us for evaluation, we take your complete history and symptoms. For acute injuries, we may ask some questions about what happened and what you experienced during and immediately after the injury. We may ask you to have some imaging studies done so that we can choose the most appropriate surgical approach to your care. We treat you as a full partner in your care during the pre-operative testing, surgery and post-operative care, physical therapy or rehab.

If you have questions about your condition or injury, the success rate of the surgery or the experience of our surgeons, we invite you to ask. We take the time to fully answer and explain every aspect of your care. This allows you to make informed decisions about your care, post-operative recovery and your overall health.
