Orthopedics is the field of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, joints, and muscles. Orthopedics mainly deals with correction of disorders and deformities related to the musculoskeletal system; hence, orthopedics is central to the treatment of back pain. Orthopedic care can employ various pain management techniques, manual treatment, physical therapy, and bracing to treat a variety of spinal dysfunctions including chronic back pain, scoliosis, and sacrioiliac joint dysfunction.
Over the years, the field of orthopedic surgery has expanded to encompass many subspecialties and the treatment of many musculoskeletal disorders in patients of all ages and Mediplus is glad to provide all these services to the community.
Some of the common orthopedic surgery subspecialties include:
These and others often overlap with other medical specialties, including neurosurgery, plastic surgery, rheumatology, and podiatry. Orthopedic surgeons often have to work closely with other physicians in order to manage complex problems.
In addition, our orthopedic surgeons work directly with primary care doctors, pediatricians, anesthesiologists, emergency room physicians, as well as non-physician clinicians such as physician assistants, athletic trainers, orthopedic technologists, nurse practitioners, and others.
