At Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group, our general orthopaedic doctors address a wide variety of disorders affecting bones, cartilage, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They are trained in all aspects of the musculoskeletal system and are committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal orthopedic health and movement.
As one of our patients, you can expect a timely and thorough consultation. Our doctors will provide you with a detailed diagnosis, a clear explanation of your injury or condition, and your treatment options.
They share information readily, in terms you can understand, and they encourage you to actively participate in the decision-making process so you feel confident and comfortable about your care.
If necessary, our general orthopaedists will consult with and/or refer you to another sub-specialized orthopedic surgeon within our group.
The most common disorders and diseases treated by our general orthopedists include:
Most injuries or conditions can be resolved with non-surgical treatment options such as physical or occupational therapy, cortisone injections, viscosupplementation, or PRP therapy. However, if you and your doctor determine that surgery is the best treatment option, our surgeons offer a number of procedures that can reduce your pain and speed your recovery.
The doctors at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group also see and treat pediatric orthopedic injuries. We understand the unique orthopedic care children require and how important it is for broken bones and other acute injuries to receive immediate, compassionate care.
Our orthopedists will help your child get back to school and play as quickly as possible. And with diagnostic services, an outpatient surgery center, and physical therapy on site, your child can receive the full spectrum of pediatric orthopedic care all at one location.
Areas of expertise include:
The procedure requires only small incisions and is guided by a miniature viewing instrument or scope, which allows the doctor to examine the joint in great detail. If treatment is necessary, tiny surgical instruments are inserted. Arthroscopy has a number of benefits over traditional open surgery, including:
- No cutting of muscles or tendons, which means less tissue damage
- Smaller incisions, which means less scarring
- Shorter recovery period
- Decreased pain
- Decreased risk of infection
Arthroscopy is not appropriate for every patient. Your doctor will evaluate your condition and discuss the diagnostic and treatment options that are best for you.
With the large military presence in southern Colorado and troops returning from war, our surgeons also perform amputations and provide comprehensive and compassionate follow-up amputation care, including custom-fitted prosthetics. In fact, we offer this service in-house, with locations at both of our main offices on the Audubon Medical Campus and St. Francis Medical Center Campus.
As the largest and most experienced group of board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons in southern Colorado, rest assured that we have you covered from head to toe.
