Our specialty-trained doctors at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine are the area's distinguished experts in the diagnosis and treatment of patients' orthopedic injuries and conditions.
The musculoskeletal system is comprised of a variety of bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons. When one of these components is damaged or is afflicted with a chronic condition, it can cause pain and ultimately, have a large impact on a patient's life. General orthopedics is the specialized field of medicine dedicated to the treatment of these conditions, injuries, and disorders that can affect the musculoskeletal system. Patients experiencing severe pain should seek medical attention from an experienced general orthopedic surgeon, who can diagnose orthopedic injuries and conditions and provide treatment options for pain relief.
