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.
