Living with daily bone and joint pain can be unbearable for many people. Your ability to move, work, and be physically active is related to the health of your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. When aches, pains, or serious injuries compromise your ability to function in comfort, turn to the Orthopedic Specialists at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center (PBGMC). Palm Beach Gardens Orthopedic Program cares for patients requiring various levels of treatment.
Palm Beach Gardens Orthopedic Program combines the experience of a focused, multidisciplinary team. This team includes internists, anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, nursing, occupational and physical therapists. Together, with the patient, they develop, collaborate, and deliver comprehensive care - from diagnosis through recovery.
Whether receiving a hand X-ray in our Outpatient Radiology department or having a hip X-rayed in our Emergency Room after a fall at home, our dedicated staff of professionals is there to offer technical, yet compassionate care.
Diagnosis of pain, injury or disease is key to prescribing a treatment for successful recovery. At PBGMC, we use advanced orthopedic imaging tools to create precise and detailed images of bones, joints, and tissues. Imaging tests utilized at PBGMC include:
- Computerized Tomography (CT)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Arthroscopy is a diagnostic procedure performed most frequently on the knee or shoulder joint, but can also include ankles, wrists, and hips. It can be used to diagnose suspected ligament tears, damaged meniscus cartilage, bone fragments, joint pain, or the need for joint surgery. In many cases, repairs can be made through the arthroscope reducing the need for larger incisions and longer recovery time.
