Joint pain is common, so how do you know when it warrants a visit with an orthopedic specialist? If you have lasting pain that is keeping you from your normal activities or daily life, you should consider making an appointment.
Common reasons to see an orthopedic specialist include:
SageWest Health Care’s orthopedic specialists can evaluate and diagnose your concerns, offer treatment and provide orthopedic surgery if needed. Our orthopedic services are available at both our Lander and Riverton locations.
The orthopedic physicians at SageWest Health Care are specialists in diagnosing and treating joint pain. As part of your evaluation and diagnosis, we will consider:
As a result of the exam, your doctor may ask you to have an X-ray or an MRI. These tests will help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis. (Note: If you already have X-rays, please bring them with you to your appointment.)
SageWest Health Care offers many effective orthopedic treatment options, and we always begin treatment with the least invasive methods first. In more severe cases of joint pain, surgery may be recommended.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique used to diagnose and treat joint problems. SageWest Health Care's orthopedic surgeons use highly specialized instruments inserted through incisions about half an inch in size to reconstruct joints.
Other patients may require full joint replacement surgery. In each case, our orthopedic surgeons perform surgical procedures to lessen pain, reduce recovery time and allow you to regain the full use of the joint as soon as possible. A rehabilitation program will help you get back to functioning at your fullest potential following surgery.
