Orthopedic Surgery

What We Do  

Orthopedics treats all aspects of disease and injury affecting the neck, back, upper and lower limbs.This obviously includes a vast array of conditions involving the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. In addition to conditions of the knees, ankles and feet, the orthopedist is also focused upon conditions and injuries to the muscles, tendons and ligaments that move and support these parts. Orthopedists frequently need to collaborate with their colleagues from neurology, rheumatology, and pain management for the complete management of more complex musculoskeletal problems.


Conditions we treat  

  • All fractures, excluding ribs and facial bones
  • Sprains, strains and contusions
  • Arthritis in its various forms and locations
  • Tendon injuries, excluding hand
  • Neck and back injuries

Procedures We Do  

  • Nonsurgical and surgical treatment of all fractures
  • Total joint replacements
  • Nonsurgical and surgical treatment of muscle, tendon and ligament tears
  • Injection procedures for tendinitis, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Injection procedures for arthritis

Why We Are Different  

Unlike groups that are comprised only of orthopedic surgeons, WESTMED orthopedists are not limited to the treatment of a single body part. Each of us is different, but we are all trained to manage and direct the care of the entire musculoskeletal system. We have both surgical and nonsurgical team members. And our being part of such a strong multispecialty group allows us and our patients to benefit from the expertise of over 200 medical colleagues in all specialties. Because of this advantage, we enjoy the high degree of connectivity through our electronic medical record, electronic and digital X-ray files, and rapid communication with each other. Also, we do not hesitate to reach outside of WESTMED for more complex problems requiring the expertise of a tertiary medical center.
