Orthopedic surgeons are skilled at both surgical and non-surgical techniques for evaluating and treating conditions of the musculoskeletal (bones) system.
Trauma to the bones, sports injuries, congenital conditions, bone degenerative disease, tumors, infections and other conditions related to hips, knees, spine/back, legs, arms, hands, foot and ankle and other bones are all conditions that are seen by orthopedic surgeons.
Board-certified and specialty-trained orthopedic surgeons practice at Sentara facilities. This means that physicians have met the specific educational, evaluation and examination testing of The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Tips for Finding an Orthopedic Surgeon
Check to make sure your physician is board-certified.
Ask your physician if he/she has any specialty areas of care that relate to your concern.
Physicians choose the facilities where they practice. Be sure to ask where your surgeon operates so you will be able to have any surgeries performed at the hospital/outpatient center you want to go to.
