Patients of All Ages
We have qualified joint replacement surgeons who work with patients of all ages including newborns and young athletes. These particular patients require specialized care to ensure their young musculoskeletal system function properly.
Young athletes who require arthroscopic surgery will find our joint replacement surgeons very helpful. Additionally, parents whose newborns have club foot will find the help they need with our team of surgeons.
We're also well-equipped to deal with conditions that affect older patients. These conditions include back and hip issues as well as arthritis. You'll find our orthopedic doctors in Gaithersburg, MD, a delight to work with.
Our treatment begins with a diagnosis, which involves a physical examination where you'll be asked questions to help us ascertain the source of the problem and to get to know how you feel. Once that's done, our specialist will recommend physical therapy in Gaithersburg, especially if the injury and pain are less severe.
If physical therapy fails, then we recommend medication mainly in the form of a cortisone injection. This usually works in such cases as osteoarthritis. However, if the problem is severe, this type of treatment may not suffice.
The bottom line is that the orthopedic surgeon won't be quick to advise surgery unless the severity of injury immediately calls for it. If the cortisone injection doesn't work, then our specialist will suggest a surgical procedure to help you recover. We'll discuss the expectations with you and answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure and recovery.
The recommended procedure will naturally depend on the extent of the injury. You may need a simple, non-invasive outpatient procedure, which our surgeons will perform, allowing you to go home the same day. However, if the injury is severe, then you may need to stay in the hospital for a while for a more advanced procedure.
