General Orthopedics

The Montefiore Approach

The Division of General Orthopedics at Montefiore brings together a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise for the diagnosis and management of new and long-standing musculoskeletal conditions.

Musculoskeletal injuries and ailments can be very common. While such conditions frequently resolve on their own, some can be more sudden in onset, cause severe pain or be otherwise concerning. Our Division’s goal is to help a patient best navigate their unique medical needs.

We routinely work with other specialists, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, physiatrists, and pain management specialists, to help improve the symptoms and function of our patients, allowing them to resume their normal activities as soon as possible.

The experience of our patients and their loved ones—not simply their ailments—demands our full attention. Your dedicated care team will be there to discuss your condition, answer questions, assess treatment options and develop a treatment strategy that is best for you.

While common, musculoskeletal injuries and ailments can be the cause of pain and discomfort. At Montefiore, we recognize that our patients are unique individuals with unique values, concerns and expectations. It is our belief that identifying the best treatment plan requires an understanding of and a sensitivity to each patient’s particular condition. Our patients deserve a comprehensive understanding of their problem and the treatment options available to them. By keeping our patients informed, our physicians allow for effective shared decision making.

Bursitis is a painful swelling of a small sac of fluid called a bursa. Bursae (plural of bursa) cushion and lubricate areas where tendons, ligaments, skin, muscles, or bones rub against each other. People who repeat the same movement over and over or who put continued pressure on a joint in their jobs, sports, or daily activities have a greater chance of getting bursitis.Bursitis is commonly caused by: Read More

Our Treatments

The Division of General Orthopedics emphasizes non-operative strategies that can best address a patient’s recovery and help them transition to a healthier lifestyle. Our ultimate goal is to address not just the current complaint, but to help prevent the development of future symptoms and conditions through nutrition, exercise, lifestyle modifications, and judicious use of medicine when appropriate.

While many musculoskeletal injuries and ailments often resolve or improve using non-surgical intervention, in some instances, surgery represents the most effective solution. In these cases, members of other orthopedic divisions work closely together to identify the most appropriate service or provider, and to facilitate a patient’s subsequent referral and evaluation. For those seeking further information, we have included a few examples of common treatment options that we perform at Montefiore.
