Sutter Surgical Hospital - North Valley
Orthopedics is the study of disorders relating to the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, skin, nerves, and bones that comprise the musculoskeletal system. Musculoskeletal disorders are the top reason that patients visit doctors.
Orthopedic surgeons care for patients with a variety of conditions including: arthritis, osteoporosis, sciatica, scoliosis, tendon injuries, fractures, dislocations and torn ligaments. Our orthopedic and spine surgeons work with patients to diagnose injuries and disorders, formulate treatment plans, assist with rehabilitation needs, prevention of future injuries and slowing the progression of chronic diseases. In addition to surgical methods, surgeons may aid patients in other ways including helping them with details related to medication, exercise and physical therapy.
Orthopedic and spine surgery spans a wide range of options for patients to correct problems that affect the musculoskeletal system. Aches, stiffness and discomfort are common afflictions, but the more severe cases may require a surgical solution. A patient’s muscles, tendons, joints and bones can all be worked on to erase the effects of traumatic injury, disease, aging or a combination of the three.
