An Orthopedic Surgeon In Princeton For Every Need

Rothman Orthopaedic Institute Provides Skilled Surgeons for Patients of All Types

When it comes to orthopedic care, one size does not fit all.

The range of musculoskeletal issues that fall under the field and practice of orthopedics is broad and extensive. From torn ACLs to hip arthritis and from broken bones to spinal deformities, there are no shortage of orthopedic conditions that may require the specialized care of an orthopedic surgeon in Princeton.

Equally extensive and diverse are the types of patients that experience orthopedic issues. Orthopedic injuries can happen to anyone, from young, healthy athletes to older patients experiencing the wear-and-tear associated with aging. The treatment needs of these patients vary greatly, and the methods and options appropriate for one patient will never exactly match those of another.

With specialties ranging from Sports Medicine to joint replacement, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute can provide you with an ideally-suited orthopedic surgeon in Princeton, no matter your age, your particular condition, or your specific needs.

Orthopedic Care for Young Patients

Rothman Orthopaedic Institute understands that the orthopedic needs of adolescents are unique and demand specialized, personalized care. That’s why Rothman Orthopaedic Institute offers unparalleled pediatric care for our younger patients.

While many associate orthopedic conditions with aging demographics and assume that young people are naturally healthy and resilient in terms of orthopedic health, adolescents can be affected by a great number of congenital, developmental, and acquired issues. Listed below are some of the orthopedic conditions that may affect adolescents:

  • Foot conditions, including metatarsus adductus, calcaneovalgus foot, club foot, pigeon toes, overlapping toes, and hammer/mallet toes.

  • Leg conditions, including internal femoral torsion, internal tibial torsion, bow-legs, and knock-knees.

  • Knee conditions, including popliteal cyst, osteochondritis dissecans, and Osgood-Schlatter disease.

  • Hip conditions, including developmental dysplasia, Perthes’ disease, and repeated dislocations.

  • Spine conditions, including scoliosis, kyphosis, and spondylosis.

Of course, the active nature of adolescents also makes them highly prone to traumatic injuries and consequential orthopedic injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments, sprains, strains, etc.). Whatever your child’s orthopedic issue, a Rothman Orthopaedic Institute pediatric orthopedic surgeon in Princeton most likely can help.

Orthopedic Care for Adults

Following childhood growth and development, adults experience an overall stabilization of orthopedic health. However, developmental conditions or deformities that were left untreated or unaddressed during growth may begin to cause serious complications during the adult years. In these cases, orthopedic attention is essential.

For active adults, traumatic orthopedic injuries are an all-too-common reality. For athletes, injuries are extra common and cause a greater disruption of lifestyle and activity. Athletic adults can pursue specialized Sports Medicine care at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute that is specifically tailored to those who are involved in intense physical activity.

As adults enter middle-age and later middle-age, maintaining sound orthopedic health becomes critical. Minor or newly developed conditions that are not addressed immediately may advance and become more serious as old age approached.

Orthopedic Care for Seniors

As the body ages, it naturally experiences physical degradation. And, as people live longer, their propensity to orthopedic issues that affect their bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons become more common. As the symptoms and long-term repercussions of neglected conditions and issues grow, it becomes especially important for seniors to receive evidence-based, specialized care.

Among the primary issues that affect seniors are arthritis (in particular, osteoarthritis) and osteoporosis. As bone health declines and bones become weaker and more brittle, the risk of fractures and dislocations become more serious. These and other conditions may cause chronic pain or immobility, preventing an active lifestyle among seniors.

  • Cartilage Restoration Institute

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
