Orthopedists are the go-to physician for joint replacement, arthritis, sports injuries, and more. Our skilled, board-certified orthopedic physicians at Carteret Health Care utilize proven diagnostic procedures and advanced technology to find the root cause of bone and muscle pains. Whether you are dealing with a sports injury, muscle tear, or bone fracture, once we have assessed the source and extent of your pain, we can start putting together a treatment plan. If you need imaging tests, our doctors will review the results with you and explain what they believe to be the cause of your pain.

In orthopedic care, your care team should always start with the least invasive treatments, except in extreme cases. Many muscle, joint, and bone conditions can be treated with medication and rest, but our team is prepared should you require more intensive treatment. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed with highly experienced orthopedic surgeons. We are even capable of performing total joint replacement surgeries, when necessary.

Some common conditions orthopedists treat include:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Arthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Hip displacement
  • Back and spinal pain
  • Bone fractures
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Tennis elbow
  • Foot pain (podiatry)
  • Sports injuries
