OrthopaedicsYour Health. Your Hospital
Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. In other words, orthopaedics focuses on the musculoskeletal system. There are a few medical professionals who practice non-surgical orthopaedics such as sports medicine or physical medicine.
Our orthopaedists will provide you with a thorough health assessment, which will ultimately allow them to assign you a correct and precise diagnosis. Subsequently, they will present you with the safest, as well as the most effective, treatment options. For instance, if your mobility is limited by arthritis, injury, or joint pain, our medical experts can restore your health.
At Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, we employ a wide range of treatments for orthopaedic problems, from non-invasive treatments to surgery. We are proud to say that our team of orthopaedists is highly skilled, as they underwent extensive training and have the necessary expertise to assign a precise diagnosis, as well as to recommend the best treatment approach for you.
Forget The Pain. Enjoy the Journey
If you have one or multiple fractures that require immediate medical attention, our orthopaedic surgeons are ready to perform the procedures you need to remediate your health problems.
For this reason, our team of orthopaedists has a close relationship with the Department of Plastic Surgery, the Department of Neurosurgery, and the Department of Vascular Surgery, since a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals may need to attend to a complex orthopaedic case.
If, however, you do not have any emergency and your orthopaedic problem can wait, you can benefit from minimally invasive surgery, which can be performed at our hospital by virtue of the Da Vinci Si Surgical System, a robotic platform.
Benefits of the Da Vinci Si Surgical System in Orthopaedics
The benefits of this type of surgery are numerous, including:
Nonetheless, it is important to know that not everyone is a good candidate for robotic surgery. The reason not everyone can safely undergo robotic surgery is that certain health problems involving bones and muscles require a traditional surgical approach due to the extent of the damage. For a thorough assessment of the health of your musculoskeletal system, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment with one of our talented orthopaedists.
