Diagnostic Care


Offering advanced technology for accurate diagnosis

Accurate diagnosis is a prerequisite for effective orthopedic care. This begins with your orthopedic surgeon who evaluates your movements; feels for crackling, looseness, thickenings, tenderness or warm tissue; and listens to your input about the location, intensity and quality of your pain. Working much like a detective, your physician will identify possible causes of your problem.
