Orthopedics Specialists in New Jersey

Our Services

    We offer surgical & non-surgical treatment options

    Redefine Healthcare’s orthopedic team provides cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical treatment for conditions affecting your bones and joints.

    Orthopedics focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its interconnecting parts; this includes your muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Damage to any part of this system can stem from a chronic condition or an injury. Our orthopedists will recommend non-surgical treatment wherever possible, but when conservative treatment fails to provide the pain relief you need, our top orthopedic surgeons will move forward with surgery.

    What are the signs of an orthopedic condition?

    Because orthopedic conditions involve so many different parts of the body, from the neck to the ankle, symptoms can vary depending on whether the pain is acute or chronic, and where the affected area is. Signs of an orthopedic condition may include:

    • Numbness
    • Weakness
    • Joint pain
    • Stiffness
    • Restricted range of motion
    • Swelling
    • Warmth

    Acute vs. chronic pain in orthopedic conditions

    Orthopedic conditions can occur as a result of injury or trauma, or age-related wear and tear, and categorized as either acute or chronic pain. Acute pain is usually associated with an obvious injury, linked to some type of trauma, such as a muscle strain or broken bone. Acute pain is linked to sudden and severe pain, swelling, a visible bone break or dislocation, or limited range of motion. This type of pain will often decrease as the injury heals.

    Common acute orthopedic conditions:

    • Dislocations
    • Fractures
    • Muscle strains
    • Ligament tears

    Chronic pain is progressive, starting slowly and continually getting worse over time. Chronic pain usually stems from overuse or age-related wear and tear. This type of pain can affect your daily activities, and may require an ongoing treatment plan from a pain medicine doctor in order to manage.

    Common chronic orthopedic conditions:

    • Arthritis
    • Bursitis
    • Osteoporosis
    • Tendonitis

    How are orthopedic conditions treated?

    Treatment for orthopedic conditions can vary. As with most pain and injury, most conditions can be improved without surgical intervention, and your best chance at a full recovery involves early diagnosis. Initial treatment recommended by your orthopedist for minor conditions may include:

    • RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation)
    • Over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication

    Pain Management

    Interventional pain management uses ache-blocking techniques to make your daily life with an orthopedic condition more comfortable. These techniques can help relieve pain, swelling, and other symptoms associated with orthopedic conditions. Redefine Healthcare’s tried-and-true pain relief methods may include:

    • Anti-inflammatory medication
    • Corticosteroid injections
    • Narcotic pain medication
    • Nerve blocks
    • Muscle relaxers
    • Antidepressants

    Physical Therapy

    Physical therapy for orthopedic conditions helps to restore function to joints, tendons, ligaments, and bones. The physical therapists at Redefine Healthcare specialize in helping orthopedic patients regain their strength, flexibility, and mobility and manage their pain following an injury or surgery, or working through a chronic condition. We work with you to design a custom physical therapy program that builds strength and mobility where you need it most, incorporating your lifestyle and specific goals.

    Orthopedic Surgery

    When non-surgical treatment fails to provide relief, you may be a candidate for orthopedic surgery. The orthopedic surgeons at Redefine Healthcare utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical technology to treat a variety of orthopedic conditions. We specialize in joint replacements, ligament repairs, spine surgery, arthroscopic procedures, and more. With a multidisciplinary team of in-house physical therapists, pain management specialists, and more, Redefine Healthcare is also fully equipped to assist you through post-surgical rehabilitation to full recovery.

    Sports Medicine

    Many orthopedic conditions stem from sports-related injuries. Orthopedists who specialize in sports medicine are specially-trained to treat all bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons that can be affected by training, sports, and exercise. Just as we do with non-athletes, our team of physical therapists, pain management specialists, orthopedists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals collaborate to build a personalized treatment plan for your orthopedic pain or injury, for patients of all ages and abilities. If you have an orthopedic sports injury, it’s important to see an orthopedic specialist before the injury dominates your everyday life.

    For world-class orthopedic care, see the pain medicine experts at Redefine Healthcare. Whether you’ve recently suffered a sports injury or have developed a chronic issue, we can provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan to manage your orthopedic condition, if not make a full recovery.
