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.

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.
