An orotopedist deals with diagnostics and conservative treatment, as well as qualification for procedures and surgical treatment of diseases, congenital defects, acquired defects, inflammations, infections, cancers as well as damage and post-traumatic changes of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, he performs diagnostics of the skeleton, joint and ligament system, muscles, nerves and the vascular system.
An orthopedic surgeon should be consulted if there is recurrent pain in the musculoskeletal system. Most often, it is the first noticeable signal for us that something is happening in the body that requires our immediate reaction. Other, and at the same time, frequent reasons for visiting an orthopedist are injuries such as fractures, sprains or dislocations. Symptoms in these cases, as a rule, are quite clear. A different situation occurs in the case of degenerative diseases of the spine, where the first symptoms are not specific. There is pain in the area of the sternum, commonly known as low back pain, recurrent and persistent headaches, numbness in the legs, or tinnitus.
The orotopedist in Gliwice, during the medical interview, will ask about the symptoms and diseases that prompted you to visit. At this point, worrying symptoms should be presented in an orderly manner – how long they have been present, whether their intensity changes over time and whether remedial measures have already been used and with what effect. The information obtained in this way will enable the orthopedist to decide on further treatment, necessary diagnostic tests, and selection of the optimal treatment method.
At the orthopedic clinic of the GlivClinic Medical Center, we provide a comprehensive approach to the patient – you can immediately arrange a consultation with an orthopedist from Gliwice and an ultrasound. To sign up for a visit, we encourage you to use the online registration via the widget available on our website or the ZnanyLekarz.pl portal.
