Orthopaedic Care

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine concerned with the bones, joints, muscles, and associated structures. Your musculoskeletal system is comprised of 206 bones that are connected by joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Your musculoskeletal system protects your internal organs, supports your weight, and allows you to move. It is a complex interdependent system where even a minor disruption can result in discomfort and physical limitations. Blue Ridge physicians are trained to diagnose and treat various injuries, deformities, or diseases that interrupt this system. They have a breath of knowledge to cover all or most of the variety of aches and pains, injuries and developmental abnormalities that patients experience. Using the most advanced techniques and technologies, our group of surgeons treats a full range of orthopaedic problems.
