PATIENT EDUCATION

Excel Orthopaedic Specialists is committed to providing our patients with everything they need to help better explain and educate them with regards to their orthopaedic condition. Many of these products are distributed through national organizations, such as The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery.

We like patients to understand what to expect postoperatively, and this can be done through educational pamphlets or through a visit with physical therapy, where the expectations and physical therapy regimen will be explained to the patient preoperatively. If you are interested in a brief sketch of numerous orthopaedic conditions and treatments, visit The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Public Information page.

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine is a specialty practice, providing care for athletic and recreational injuries sustained by people of all ages. Today’s athlete can be a little league baseball player, a working mother interested in staying fit, or a senior citizen who golfs on the weekend. These people, in addition to high school, collegiate, and professional athletes, will benefit from the care of a sports medicine professional.

Through advances in surgical techniques, orthopedic sports medicine specialists have been able to treat and rehabilitate athletes whose types of injuries were once career-ending. In addition to improved surgical techniques, sports medicine has also made tremendous strides in identifying, treating and preventing sports-related injuries through nonoperative care.
