Orthopedic treatments

Treatment plans are patient specific and personalized according to each unique situation which allows for the best outcome. At LewisGale Physicians, our team offers a variety of treatments including:

Nonsurgical treatments

When possible, your care team will recommend minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatments for your orthopedic condition.

These can include:

  • Bracing, booting, and casting to heal sprains, strains, and some closed fractures
  • Joint injections directly into the problem area to reduce pain
  • Medication management taken orally to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation to strengthen and increase mobility

Surgical treatments

If nonsurgical treatments prove to be ineffective, our expert surgeons are here to help. They are experienced and skilled in performing a wide range of procedures — from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair to joint replacements and revisions.

Minimally invasive surgical treatments

Minimally invasive surgical techniques create smaller surgical incisions compared to traditional methods, decrease hospitalization, produce less scarring, and improve recovery outcomes.

One of the most advanced minimally invasive surgical methods is robot-assisted surgery, which uses advanced robotic technology that provides an enhanced view of the surgical site and increased precision for the surgeon.
