Why Should You See an Orthopedic Surgeon?

Many people who experience pain in their muscles, back, joints, and tendons think that the only way to cope is through medication. This is a flagrant untruth. Here at Summit Medical Center, we have orthopedic surgeons who specialize in these medical issues and can treat them to alleviate and even eradicate the pain. These Oklahoma City surgeons dedicate themselves to the diagnosis and treatment of anything ailing the musculoskeletal system, and patients can come to them with such varied complaints as serious sports injuries and simple muscle pains. 

So how do you know that it’s time to visit one of our orthopedic surgeons? Take a look at the list below to determine whether or not you should call our office to schedule an appointment.

Are you …
  • Experiencing constant (or even intermittent) pain in your muscles, joints, back, or tendons?
  • Having difficulty carrying objects or are only able to use a particular hand or arm?
  • Unable to fully straighten your back?
  • Experiencing pain or stiffness in your back when you stand?
  • Feeling pain in your joints that gets stronger at night or when you’re resting?

This is only a short list of the reasons that you should contact a surgeon specializing in orthopedics in Oklahoma City. You may be unsure of the cause of the pain that you're feeling, but with the expert care and knowledge of one of our doctors, you can get answers to your questions. Further, an orthopedic surgeon can go over your treatment options, and explain what they are in plain terms that will help you make an educated decision.

Often, surgery is a last resort and will only be performed after less invasive treatments have been tried; however, it may be exactly what you need to overcome your pain. If you are feeling any discomfort or tenderness, reach out to a doctor -- the longer you wait, the more serious the problem may become. By seeing one of Summit Medical Center's professionals, you may be able to resolve the problem without relying on any medication in the long term.
