Baptist Medical Group Orthopedic Surgery

Your bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves all work together as a team to allow you to move. When one of them is injured, it disrupts the function of all of them. Luckily, the field of orthopaedic surgery can help.

Orthopaedic surgery is the branch of medicine that focuses on repairing injuries and diseases of the body's musculoskeletal system through surgical procedures. This allows patients to get back to moving, working and being active through healthy bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves.

What Do Baptist Medical Group Orthopaedic Surgeons Do?

The orthopaedic surgeons at Baptist Medical Group are trained to treat injuries and diseases of the body's musculoskeletal system. This can include diseases in the bone, joints, back, neck, arms, legs, hands and feet. In an arm or leg, Baptist Medical Group orthopaedic surgeons tend to deal more with diseases and injuries of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, joints and bones.

While orthopaedic surgeons use surgery to treat problems in the musculoskeletal system, they may also treat patients with medication, physical therapy, braces, or injections.
