Orthopaedic Surgery Consultations
WHAT IS ORTHOPAEDIC MEDICINE?
Orthopaedic medicine is a specialized area of medicine that assesses and treats injuries and conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system (i.e., the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc.).
WHAT IS AN ORTHOPAEDIC SPORTS MEDICINE SURGEON?
Orthopaedic Sport Medicine Physicians are orthopaedic surgeons who have additional training in sport medicine. They have a very detailed knowledge and understanding of all treatment options including rehabilitative treatment such as physiotherapy or massage therapy, as well as injections, bracing, and of course, surgery if necessary.
The orthopaedic sport medicine physician at PhysioPlus Health Group can review all treatment options with patients and will ensure that non-surgical treatment options have been considered prior to recommending surgery.
COORDINATED MEDICAL CARE
Sport Medicine Physicians are responsible for coordinating care with other members of the sports medicine team including athletic trainers, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Osteopaths, Nutritionists, other medical specialists and other health care professionals involved in rehabilitation.
