Decorah Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
When you suffer an injury or a disorder that affects your joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons, the pain and discomfort can be keeping you from doing the things you enjoy. At Gundersen Decorah Clinic, our orthopedic specialists provide diagnosis and treatment options that can help ease your pain.
Our team and services
Decorah orthopedic physician assistant Andrea Wilson, PA-C, provides sports medicine management and non-surgical treatment options:
Our goal is to decrease your pain and increase function. This means starting with conservative treatments whenever possible, such as:
- Activity modification
- Over-the-counter or prescription medications
- Assistive devices
- Physical therapy
In some cases, surgical treatment is the best option and surgical referrals are made as appropriate to a Gundersen orthopedic surgeon for:
- Fracture repair (wrists, ankles, hips, shoulders and more)
- Hip replacement
- Knee replacement
- Hand surgery (carpal tunnel, trigger fingers, fractures)
Every patient is different and may require different treatment options. We will work together with each patient to determine the right treatment based on their injury, lifestyle and age.
Gundersen Health System has a wide range of additional orthopedic services if you'd like to learn more.
