DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY
The Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine deals with injury and disease of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Orthopedists are often sought after for joint problems, but they also treat diseases of the nervous system, such as, muscular dystrophy and Cerebral Palsy. An emerging field of orthopedics is Sports Medicine, which is composed of board certified orthopedic surgeons who deal with sports and exercise-related injuries.
Orthopedics covers a wide variety of injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including acute injuries and chronic problems. The treatment of a patient is dependent on the age, the orthopedic condition, and how the condition was acquired, and the patient's lifestyle. Because there are many conditions to treat, orthopedists use a variety of physical, medical and rehabilitative methods to treat patients.
Enormous strides have been made with the development of artificial joints, bone replacement materials, and the advancements in plastics and metal technology, allowing orthopedists to mimic the natural functions of bones, joints and ligaments. Orthopedists can now achieve greater accuracy in restoring damaged parts to their original range of motion. The La Peer Orthopedic surgeons also carry out clinical trials and research into various aspects of this medical area, so that we can improve personal service to our patients in the future and provide medically advanced treatments at the same time.
