Joint care

Doctors specializing in joint care, called orthopedists, diagnose and treat problems related to your joints. They treat injuries related to bones, shoulders, knees and hips and relieve pain with joint rehabilitation or replacement. You may need to see them if you have strains, sprains, arthritis or chronic joint pain.

Our orthopedists provide the comprehensive bone and joint care you need to overcome your chronic joint pain or arthritis. After performing various imaging tests, we will typically begin by offering non-surgical therapies before considering minimally invasive procedures.
