Brooklyn orthopedics is known as sports medicine when you visit due to injuries sustained in sporting activities. Not every injury calls for it, but orthopedic surgery is sometimes necessary. Since so many things can happen to your musculoskeletal system, your general practitioner Brooklyn physician has to understand the underlying interconnected structure of the physiology at play that lets you walk and move. The types of injuries you may suffer include:
Broken or fractured arm
Rotator cuff injury
Knee ligament tear
Diseases can strike your body too, and our doctor at Century Medical and Dental Center has to respond with appropriate treatment. Some of the conditions that orthopedics in Brooklyn can treat include:
Arthritis in your knee
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Our pediatric orthopedics work to correct birth defects in children, protecting growing bodies from harm and helping them heal when an accident does happen.
Orthopedics Consultation and Diagnosis
Your initial orthopedic consultation determines what type of treatment you need. Since your musculoskeletal system is so intertwined, a pain in your foot may be caused by a back or hip issue. To reach a diagnosis, your doctor may perform a lower and upper extremities evaluation to test feeling and function.
Our doctor listens to your description of your pain and takes a full medical history, asking when your pain started, when it’s better or worse, and whether you’ve had it before. Your doctor then gives you a full examination. He may ask you to undergo one or more diagnostic tests, such as an x-ray or MRI.
