General Orthopaedics

The Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine waiting roomIf you break your arm, sprain your ankle or experience ongoing pain that feels like arthritis, you may benefit from seeing a general orthopaedic physician at UK Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine.

General orthopaedics focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions connected to bones, joints and the musculoskeletal system. While general orthopaedic doctors typically focus on nonsurgical solutions to these issues, they can also refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon if your condition calls for it or if conservative treatment doesn’t help. Our general orthopaedic doctors use leading-edge techniques to resolve your pain and get you back on your feet.
