What Is An Orthopedic Surgeon?
An orthopedic surgeon is skilled in diagnosing and treating issues or medical conditions associated with your bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles. Some orthopedic surgeons focus on your whole body, and some specialize in certain areas of your body including your hips and knees, shoulders and elbows, hands, spine, or feet and ankles.
The podiatrists at Benenati Foot and Ankle Care Centers specialize in foot and ankle care. They have three convenient office locations in St. Clair Shores, Warren, and Macomb, Michigan to help you.
Orthopedic surgeons treat a variety of issues by first focusing on non-surgical alternatives like medications and rehabilitation or physical therapy. After non-surgical therapies have been explored, surgery may still be indicated. In cases where surgery is recommended, and orthopedic surgeon can repair injuries to the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments or muscles.
If you are dealing with a condition that impacts the bones, muscles, ligaments or joints of the feet and ankles, our podiatry and orthopedic team may be the ideal specialists to diagnose and treat these issues.
