Prior to undergoing surgery, you should try to alleviate your discomfort with non-surgical treatment options. These options include rest, ice or heat, exercise, medications, therapy, weight-loss, and injections.
If home remedies have not worked its best to seek out advice from a orthopaedic specialist. At Orozco Orthopaedics, we will get x-rays, evaluate your concerns, and determine a treatment plan. This plan may include additional imaging such as MRI/ CT-scans, injections, or surgery.
Advanced imaging like an MRI or CT scan may be ordered to evaluate your condition if your symptoms have not improved with conservative treatment.
