Orthopaedic Surgery, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation
Because it is important that you understand your medical conditions and treatment plan, education will be a major part of our service. Our physicians and staff will spend time helping you understand your health conditions. In addition to the scheduled office time, the nurse is available for phone consultation and education.
Here is a glossary of the most commonly used medical words you may hear while under our care. It is important that you write down any words which may not be familiar to you and ask for help as needed.
