Non-Surgical Treatment

When Surgery Isn’t an Option

Sometimes, surgery is not a good choice for patients. Sometimes the injury isn’t severe enough to warrant it. Other times, the patient’s health would not sustain the stress and trauma of surgery, even arthroscopic surgery. In any case, our orthopaedic specialists are well-versed in a number of non-surgical orthopaedic treatments.

Our specialties in pediatric orthopaedics, sports medicine, and other disciplines allows us to address patients with diverse needs. Sometimes, rehabilitation, therapy, or medication is far more beneficial. For ankle injuries, some tendons and ligaments may heal on their own with enough therapy. We can help patients recognize healthy limits, allowing them to grow stronger without causing further damage.

Our treatments include steroidal medical injections to heal inflamed tendons, anti-inflammatory medicine for cartilage and bone structures, and innovative therapy techniques. We help patients regain mobility and function—without using a scalpel.
