Orthopaedic surgery also known as orthopaedics is a branch of surgery that deals with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical methods to treat trauma and disease of the bones, muscles and joints.
Canadian residents will require a referral from their family doctor for consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon at Studio Athletica. International clients may book directly by contacting Studio Athletica by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 416-722-3393.
You can expect to be seen in a timely manner (1-4weeks) by one of our professional and courteous surgeons. Your orthopaedic consultation will start with a detailed history of the musculoskeletal issue, a review of medications, medical history and previous surgical history if any. A full physical examination of the involved structures will then ensue. This typically requires exposing the involved body part and often the other side for comparative purposes. A review of any necessary bloodwork and medical imaging may follow. If these have not been done they may be ordered by your doctor and the appropriate follow up will be arranged. You can expect to have a detailed explanation of the diagnosis and a treatment plan to help you get back to your optimal physical abilities. The treatment plan may consist of surgical procedures, injection therapy, non-operative therapies or a combination of the above. Either way, you will leave with a better understanding of the problem and all the treatment options that exist.
