Do you suffer from musculoskeletal injuries from trauma sustained in a motor vehicle accident?
Orthopedic surgery is a medical specialty designed to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and prevent injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and nerves. All of these can be traumatized in a motor vehicle accident. Therefore, it is not uncommon for an injury victim of a car accident- related injuries to consult with a board certified orthopedic surgeon for fractures of upper and lower extremities, spinal fractures and/or pelvic fractures, as well as other musculoskeletal complications.
These types of injuries often require surgical intervention, in addition to extended physical therapy and rehabilitation. If you have been injured and suffer from any of the above conditions, it is important that you consult with a board certified orthopedic surgeon.
Examples of orthopedic surgical techniques that are frequently used and considered less invasive are:
- Arthroscopic surgery

- Video Assisted Thorascopic surgery
