Orthopedic Surgeon NJ

An orthopedist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of problems relating to the musculoskeletal system of the human body, including bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, or muscles. Orthopedic injuries can vary from a life threatening spinal cord injury to an uncomfortable sprain or broken bone. Even if they are, luckily, not often life threatening, orthopedic injuries can still be frightening, painful, and often debilitating. With many tools at their disposal, an orthopedic surgeon can decide on the least invasive treatment method to treat an injury or medical condition.

Broken and fractured bones

Broken and fractured bones are some of the most common auto accident injuries. They are often more severe than other types of breaks and fractures simply because car accidents involve much more force and speed than other types of accidents. A car accident victim is also more likely to need orthopedic surgery. The first step in orthopedic injury treatment is some form of diagnostic imaging – usually an x-ray with our on-site radiology services. A treatment method, ranging from pain management to orthopedic surgery, is then decided upon based on the severity of the injury.

Back and neck injuries

Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries. Whiplash symptoms include aching and pain to the neck and back, headaches, shoulder pain, and disturbance – like pins and needles – in the arms and legs. Other common injuries to the back and neck include:

  • Herniated disk (use pictures from linked website with credit)
  • Neck sprain
  • Cervical fracture
  • General neck and back pain

With this exception of cervical fractures, many of these injuries are mild and can be treated with help from our pain management doctors.
