"I was limping along through life and couldn't do many of the activities I enjoyed. Thanks to Gundersen, I'm back to my full, active, athletic life."
- Chris Weiss, knee replacement
When you suffer an injury or a disorder that affects your joints, muscles, ligaments, or tendons, the pain and discomfort may be keeping you from doing the things you enjoy. At Gundersen Health System, a team of experienced orthopaedic specialists provide diagnosis and treatment options that can help free you from the pain.
Gundersen's orthopaedics team is not only trained to treat general orthopaedic conditions, but each provider also has specialized training in areas such as:
They provide surgical and non-surgical options for many conditions including:
- Broken bones or fractures
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rip, torn or cut tendons
- Rotator cuff tears
- Tennis or golfers elbow
The goal of the orthopaedics team is to decrease pain and increase function. Even though they do offer surgical options, they try conservative treatments whenever possible, such as:
- Activity modification
- Over-the-counter or prescription medications
- Assistive devices
- Physical therapy
Orthopaedics specialists also provide information to prevent injuries or slow the progression of diseases.
Every patient is different and may require different treatment options. A member of the orthopaedics team will meet with you and determine the best treatment based on your injury, lifestyle, and age.
