Orthopedic injuries and disorders can be treated in a variety of conservative ways including medication, physical therapy, injections or bracing. When severe injuries or conditions such as arthritis occur, causing extensive damage that cannot be significantly improved by conservative treatment approaches, surgery is often recommended.
