Orthopedics & Spine in Miami‚Äč

Back and spine pain is one of the most common afflictions in America; studies indicate that most adults will experience at least one bout of back pain during their lifetime. Whether you are suffering from back pain, have been involved in an accident, or experience joint pain due to a condition such as arthritis, the Orthopedic & Spine Institute at Aventura Hospital & Medical Center is here to help. Our state-of-the-art orthopedics department specializes in all types of orthopedic care, from emergency care following trauma to sports medicine and surgical services near Miami.

Types of Orthopedic Care

Orthopedics is the treatment of the bones and muscles in your body. There are several branches of orthopedic care; the appropriate type of treatment for you will depend upon your personal needs.

  • Acute orthopedics and trauma care focus on the treatment of patients with spine, joint, or limb injuries following an accident, such as a car accident, slip and fall, or other incident.
  • Sports medicine is the treatment of sports and exercise injuries to promote a healthy recovery and a faster return to the activities you love. Your sports medicine specialist may also focus on areas such as strength and flexibility to prevent future re-injury.
  • Ongoing orthopedic care is beneficial for patients with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, degenerative disc disease, or certain types of neuromuscular disorders. This type of care focuses on relieving pain and improving or maintaining mobility.
  • Orthopedic surgery may be required to address certain types of injuries or the effects of disease in order to relieve pain and restore or replace the structure of a damaged joint or bone. Following surgery, physical therapy and other treatments facilitate recovery.
