Orthopedic Surgery Q & A

What is orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery is the field of medicine that focuses on treating problems in your musculoskeletal system. This system is made up of many tissues and structures that work together, including:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Nerves

The musculoskeletal system allows you to work, play sports, and move throughout your day. This system is vulnerable to many injuries and medical conditions that cause pain and limit your ability to move.

The team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is committed to helping you heal from these conditions so you can return to the activities you love.

When should I see an orthopedic surgeon?

You should seek professional medical treatment any time you experience pain in an arm or leg or a joint that keeps up longer than a few days or doesn’t get better with self-care like rest, ice packs, and elevation.

If you experience a sudden (acute) injury like a car accident or sports injury, you can walk into the Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine clinic in McKinney. They offer high-quality services performed by skilled orthopedic surgeons and physician assistants with no appointment needed.

What services do orthopedic surgeons provide?

Just because you visit an orthopedic surgeon doesn’t mean you will need surgery. The caring providers at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine always begin treatment with the most conservative methods possible. These include:

  • Physical therapy exercises
  • Immobilization in a splint, brace, or cast
  • Oral or injected medications

They also offer regenerative medicine like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections. These methods utilize your body’s own healing factors to stimulate tissue repair and speed recovery.

Sometimes, surgery is necessary. In these cases, the team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine performs the most advanced procedures available, including:

  • Minimally invasive arthroscopy of the shoulder, hip, knee, elbow, and ankle
  • Robotic-assisted joint replacement of the knee and hip
  • Minimally invasive knee and hip replacement
  • Anterior supine total hip replacement
  • Hip and knee replacement revisions

They always recommend the least-invasive treatment possible to ensure the best experience for you.
