What Does an Orthopaedic Surgeon Do?

An orthopaedic surgeon is a specialist you should consult to evaluate musculoskeletal injuries. Perhaps you need a joint replacement or suffer afracture of a bone. The experts here at Samimi Orthopaedic Group - Dr. Babak Samimi, Dr. Soheil Samimi, and Dr. David Eldringhoff each have tremendous knowledge of the human body. Our orthopaedic surgeons in West Covina, CA and Los Angeles, CA have studied the biomechanics of bones and muscles for many years.

Diagnosing the Source of Pain

These specialists are certified to perform many services other than performing surgery. They can expertly diagnose the source of your pain or discomfort. An accurate diagnosis is vital to determine the most optimal treatment strategy.

We offer diagnostic services such as x-rays, MRIs, and other imaging techniques so that we can pinpoint the problem.

Younger patients may consult an orthopaedic surgeon when they have suffered an injury from sports. Alternatively, barring a traumatic accident, generally older patients would seek a consult with an orthopaedic surgeon regarding longstanding pain in their knee, shoulder, ankle, or other joints. Whether from a traumatic injury or arthritic wear and tear of a joint over time, our team will find the cause.

Some common conditions treated are listed below. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the conditions that we treat at Samimi Orthopaedic Group by the orthopaedic surgeons in West Covina, CA or Los Angeles, CA.

Additional Treatments

Surgical intervention is not always required for an injury or other condition, and we do our best to avoid it, exhausting less invasive interventions before surgery is recommended. Many times, injuries can be successfully treated with other interventions such as Platelet-Rich Plasma injections (PRP) and other forms of joint injections, such as corticosteroids. We provide these treatments as well.

You should not live your life in pain. If you have been experiencing pain in a joint for years, or suffer a traumatic injury, please make an appointment for a consultation at Samimi Orthopaedic Group with one of our esteemed orthopaedic surgeons, Dr. Babak Samimi, Dr. Soheil Samimi, and Dr. David Eldringhoff.
