The structures of our musculoskeletal system – the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and other tissues – are highly susceptible to damage caused by trauma from accidents, injuries and other events. These traumatic events may include a fall, automobile accident or sports injury, and often include a direct blow or twisting on a specific area of the body, causing pain, swelling, inflammation and other sometimes serious complications.
At Urgent Orthopaedic Care, we provide comprehensive trauma care for all types of falls, accidents or injuries. Dr. Gendelman is experienced in everything from performing emergency surgeries to administering physical rehabilitation programs.
Treatment for accidents or injuries can vary depending on the type, severity and location of the affected area, as well as the patient’s overall health. Most treatment courses usually begin with conservative methods and only consider surgery as a last resort. Physical rehabilitation is often needed in order to restore movement and function to the affected area as it heals.
