General Orthopedics

General Orthopedics

From diagnosing and treating problems, to surgical care, the orthopedic surgeons at Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute provide expert care to patients at five different locations in Northwest Indiana.

Lakeshore Bone and Joint is the place to be where experience and compassion come together to deliver quality care for your orthopedic problems.  Our team of specialists is the reason so many people with orthopedic injuries think of Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute. They are all highly trained and respected professionals who deliver specialized, comprehensive care for a wide array of musculoskeletal injuries.

Exceeding our patients' expectations is Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute’s main goal.  Our in-house diagnostic imaging, consisting of X-ray, MRI, and bone density studies, along with our occupational and physical therapy departments, allow our surgeons the ability to deliver stellar care.

Our general orthopedic s address a wide variety of disorders affecting bones, cartilage, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. They are trained in all aspects of the musculoskeletal system and are committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal musculoskeletal health and movement.

As one of our patients, you can expect a timely and thorough consultation. Our orthopedic surgeons will provide you with a detailed diagnosis, a clear explanation of your injury or condition, and your treatment options. They share information readily, in terms you can understand, and they encourage you to actively participate in the decision-making process so you feel confident and comfortable with your care. If necessary, our general orthopedists will consult with and/or refer you to another sub-specialized orthopedic surgeon.

Orthopedic Conditions

General orthopedic conditions treated by our surgeons:

  • Fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bursitis and tendonitis
  • Ligament and tendon tears
  • Cartilage tears
  • Pediatric injuries

Most injuries or conditions can be resolved with non-surgical treatment options such as physical therapy or occupational therapy, cortisone injections, or viscosupplementation, which is the injection of gel-like substances into a joint to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. However, if you and your doctor determine that surgery is the best treatment option, our orthopedic surgeons offer a number of surgical interventions that can reduce your pain and speed your recovery.
