It is estimated that more than 126 million Americans are affected by a disorder of the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves.
At Watauga Orthopaedics, our team of highly-skilled, board-certified providers specialize in general orthopedics, delivering personalized care tailored to the specific needs of each of our patients. Our surgeons take a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating and managing your condition, offering both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options based on your particular injury or condition, which may include:
- Cartilage injury
- Sprains and strains
- Muscle or ligament tears
- Traumatic injury
At Watauga Orthopaedics, we always try to treat injuries and conditions with non-surgical methods first. Nonsurgical treatment options may include physical or occupational therapy, PRP therapy, or medication.
However, should you require surgery, our doctors are highly skilled at performing all types of minimally invasive procedures using the most advanced technology. One of the most effective of these methods is robotic arm-assisted orthopedic surgery, which is used for partial and total knee replacements and total hip replacement.
Prior to robotic assisted surgery, advanced imaging is used to plan how much bone should be removed and to help in maximizing the accuracy of implant alignment and placement. During the procedure, the robotic arm ensures the plan is followed precisely and the desired outcome is achieved.
