General orthopaedics is the medical specialty that treats both injuries and diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal system. Areas of injury include the bones, joints and nerves as well as soft tissue injuries to ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
General Orthopaedists have a broad knowledge base on the musculoskeletal system and how both injuries and disease can have a negative impact on its system. Their goal is to treat the injury or disease in such a manner that the patient can have a full recovery. Orthopaedic doctors will use medical, rehabilitative, exercise, and surgical solutions in order to treat the injury or disease.
Performance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine offers on-site digital X-Ray imaging to provide our patients with the quickest and most convenient orthopaedic care. Patients who come to our clinic are dealing with musculoskeletal injuries and disease and benefit from the in-office use of diagnostic imaging. The sooner our orthopaedic surgeons can view images of the injured area, the faster we can diagnose conditions and recommend treatment options.
Our diagnostic imaging helps our orthopaedic doctors discover problems, such as arthritis, fractures and broken bones. Once we find the problem, we can start working on the solutions. We also consider our patients’ safety, which is why our state-of-the-art equipment provides high quality images with reduced exposure to radiation.
Dr. Diehl always listens and takes the most conservative approach for the injury rather than surgery first. He’s taken care of several of my sprains & falls. Highly recommend.
I really like Dr. Maurer. He is so down-to-earth and honest. I’ve learned to trust his advice and guidance because he cares about his patients.
Scheduling was quick, office staff was friendly and efficient and nurse and x-ray tech were friendly and thorough. Dr. Lessner was prompt and friendly. He made us feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and thoroughly.
This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!
Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!
Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.
