Other Conditions

Orthopedic medicine treats diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These conditions need not be site-specific (e.g., a broken arm or leg bone). In fact, some of the most common orthopedic conditions can strike anywhere in the body or affect the entire musculoskeletal system. Other potentially harmful conditions produce only subtle symptoms, that sometimes go unrecognized and untreated. This latter group includes certain ligament tears of the knee, slipped hip joints in adolescents, and stress fractures of the scapula or shoulder blade. The orthopedic specialists at Baptist Health take all these considerations in mind, to provide you and your loved ones with the understanding and care appropriate for your situation.
