What is Orthopedics?
Orthopedics deals with the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of injuries that may occur to muscles, bones and joints, negatively impacting mobility. Muscles cross from bone to bone, spanning the joints. With the support of ligaments and tendons around the joint, contracting muscles pull the bones and produce a specific range of movement. When injury occurs to any one of these areas, many are affected.
From diagnosis to management to critical care, we provide orthopedics services here at MCMC in Slayton to get you back into the game of life including:
