What is an Orthopaedic Surgeon?
An orthopaedic surgeon is a specialist in a surgical branch that addresses musculoskeletal conditions. Ortho surgeons use one or a combination of surgical and non-surgical interventions to relieve pain and treat bone, joint, and muscle diseases and trauma. Our team at Push Pounds Sports Medicine consists of orthopaedic surgeons who have completed advanced education and training in therapy and medicine.

Our orthopaedic surgeons specialize in a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Consultations typically begin by obtaining a detailed history of your condition, including medications and any therapy received before the appointment. We will conduct a full physical examination, which usually includes reviewing of all medical imaging or bloodwork. If needed, these will be ordered by our physicians. Our specialist will then provide a detailed explanation of your diagnosis, prognosis, and design a treatment program through our highly integrated, multidisciplinary approach, to help you regain your best physical health and performance. Our goal is to treat the underlying problem, give you a deeper understanding of your condition, and educate you on credible possible treatment options available.
