Welcome to The Greater Washington Orthopaedic Group, PA

The Greater Washington Orthopaedic Group offers a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic services related to orthopaedic surgery. We evaluate and treat injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

Most conditions treated by an orthopaedic surgeon, however, never require surgical intervention. The majority of conditions seen in an orthopaedic practice involve either injuries or degenerative wear and tear diagnoses. An orthopaedic surgeon has received five years of post-doctorate training to become eligible to practice his specialty and become board certified.

Injuries are classified by the activity responsible. Trauma such as slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents, and work related injuries account for a significant number of serious injuries. Recreation is also responsible for increasing numbers of injuries and has brought sports medicine to the forefront. Whether you are an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, we will treat you like a pro. Many of these conditions are initially treated by the family practice physician. When the symptoms are severe, or when a more complicated injury is involved, the patient will be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon.

Some of the diseases of the musculoskeletal system include the degenerative conditions of arthritis and repetitive motion syndromes such as tendonitis, bursitis, and nerve compressions.

Treatment begins with a complete medical history to determine the cause or inciting event for the patient's symptoms. Trauma, working conditions and recreational activities all play a part in causing most musculoskeletal conditions, the single common element in each case being pain. The medical history gives most of the clues to the patient's diagnosis, so a detailed description of your symptoms is a great help to your doctor in determining the diagnosis.
