Our orthopedics department specializes in orthopedic medicine, a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses. While some diseases that we manage are present from birth, others can develop as a result of trauma or aging-related wear and tear, among many reasons.
Our orthopedic team frequently collaborates with a larger orthopedic team that may also include nurse practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational or physical therapists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. Together, they aid in the identification, therapy, and rehabilitation of patients with musculoskeletal disorders or injuries. Our whole staff of orthopedists undertook rigorous training to become licensed physicians. To keep it, they must pursue continuing education and training.
