When Should You Seen An Orthopedic Surgeon

You don’t have to live with pain. In fact, there’s a good chance your symptoms could improve with treatment that may not even require surgery.

  • Pain, stiffness, or discomfort that makes daily activities difficult
  • Chronic pain (pain that has lasted longer than 12 weeks)
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Instability while walking or standing or trouble falling
