FAQs on Orthopedic Surgery
Why Would I Need Orthopedic Surgery?
Orthopedic surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the joints, muscles and bones. Some bone surgeons even specialize in particular areas of the body, such as orthopedic knee surgeons, orthopedic hip surgeons and hand specialists. Some of the most common conditions treated by the team at Prima CARE include:
- Sports injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Herniated and ruptured discs
- Artificial knee replacement
- Foot and ankle injuries, including those to the Achilles tendon
- Hip dysplasia
- Hand injuries
- Bone tumors
Will I Need Physical Therapy After Surgery?
While it is ultimately up to your doctor to make the right recommendation for your individual needs, most patients who undergo orthopedic surgery should compete physical therapy as part of the healing process. When bones, muscle and tissue are healing after surgery, failure to properly use the affected parts of the body can make the healing process improper or incomplete, giving you less favorable results and potentially causing future pain.
How Long Is My Recovery Time From Orthopedic Surgery?
Some patients recover quickly from surgery, while others may need weeks or months. However, we understand that recovery time is a concern for patients who have busy lives and obligations. At Prima CARE, our surgeons will work with you to develop a treatment plan on a case-by-case basis, taking all your individual needs and goals into consideration to give you the best care possible.
