Orthopedics Medicine at Lake Charles Hospital

State of the Art Orthopedics Care Since 1952

Orthopedic medicine involves the musculoskeletal system including joints, bones, nerves, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. An orthopedic doctor provides treatment for disorders, conditions, and injuries affecting the musculoskeletal system. As such, orthopedics is a large umbrella that covers a broad range of conditions including chronic pain, arthritis, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and rheumatic diseases.
