Injury is inevitable. Whether you are a non-professional active person or have a life dedicated to sports as an athlete, injury happens. From simple sprains to more complex torn ligaments and fractures, our Orthopedics and Sports Medicine team is exceptional in treating injuries to help you or your loved ones to get back in the game.
Many people believe that the only solution for these issues is medication. If you are experiencing any type of pain in your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, or back, you should consider seeing an orthopedic surgeon. Our team takes care of not only patients with sports injuries but also patients with other orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis and fractures.
Our orthopedic doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating a variety of orthopedic injuries and conditions. Among the most common injuries we treat include the following:

Often times, surgery will be a last resort for any musculoskeletal issues after medication and physical therapy has been previously tried to treat your issue. Should you require surgery, the surgeons at Saint Camillus Medical Center focus primarily on minimally invasive surgery and techniques to help treat your injuries and manage your pain while providing for the best possible outcome for your case. Minimally invasive procedures can help reduce pain and allow for a quicker recovery time. Orthopedic surgeons can also perform a variety of arthroscopic procedures, which allow them to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside of a joint. Additionally, our doctors at Saint Camillus Medical Center can help manage your entire care from advice about pain management including medication and/or injections, rehabilitation and physical therapy including a potential time frame, and ongoing orthopedic care and treatment.
