What does orthopedics deal with?
It deals with functional disorders, possible diseases, and developmental disorders of the bones, muscles, spine, limbs, as well as their diagnosis and treatment. The group of symptoms that are treated by an orthopedic specialist are usually referred to as musculoskeletal complaints.

Joint cartilage damages, developmental disorders, scoliosis, lumbago, discus hernia, neck and back pain, dislocated hip, clubfoot, shoulder complaints, temporary or prolonged movement restriction, limited mobility, lower back pain, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, knee problems, muscle and bone diseases of neural origin, limb pain, etc.
What happens in a personal consultation?
In addition to a personal discussion with the consultant orthopedist of Emineo Private Hospital, which provides background information, lifestyle information, previous illnesses, and congenital anomalies, the background of the complaints is determined by physical examination and, if necessary, imaging scans. Imaging results are also provided to patients on CD in each case.
Knowing the background of the complaints, the diagnosis can be established or a specialist from another field, such as rheumatology or neurology, may be involved. Once the diagnosis has been established, it can be stated that the musculoskeletal complaint can be treated conservatively or surgically in order for the patient to regain mobility and muscle strength. Therapy may include medication to relieve pain or inflammation, as well as injections and personalized physiotherapy, manual therapy and physical therapy (electrotherapy, shock wave therapy, ultrasound). At Emineo Private Hospital, we believe in unique needs and treatments. If conservative solutions are sufficient, we can also provide the surgical solution in our institution with our professional specialist surgeons, after which the rehabilitation is also supervised by our qualified team. This way, our patient can use the entire service package in one place, in a coordinated manner.
