Common Orthopaedic Disorders
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and a leading cause of joint disease. This disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, hips and knees. Osteoarthritis results in the degeneration of cartilage over time. This can lead to symptoms like hip pain and knee pain. An orthopaedic surgeon or other bone and joint specialist can help you find relief from this pain.
The Iowa Clinic’s bone and joint specialists can also help patients find relief from neck pain and provide treatment for swelling, pain and discomfort caused by an inflamed tendon (tendonitis).
Athletes are often referred to an orthopaedic surgeon after sustaining a sports injury. Common sports injuries include sprains and strains, knee injuries, Achilles tendon injuries and rotator cuff injuries. An orthopaedic surgeon is your go-to resource for all your sports medicine needs.
Beyond sports injuries, an orthopaedic surgeon can also diagnose and treat injuries related to falls and accidents that result in orthopaedic trauma, such as broken bones or fractures.
