WE’VE GOT A LEG UP ON
A Hip & Knee Specialist at ORA Orthopedics Provides
Compassionate Treatment throughout the Quad Cities
Visit a hip and knee specialist at ORA Orthopedics if joint pain is preventing you from enjoying the activities you love. The doctors at our Hip and Knee Center of Excellence provide a full spectrum of diagnostic and treatment services to residents of Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, and other communities throughout the Quad Cities.
The hips and knees are among the most complex and versatile joints in the body. Because of their intricate anatomy and near-constant use, they are particularly vulnerable to arthritis, cartilage and ligament injuries, inflammation, dislocation and other painful conditions. When you become an ORA Orthopedics patient, a hip and knee specialist who has the training and experience necessary to treat musculoskeletal injuries and diseases will evaluate your joint pain. ORAâ€™s orthopedic doctors will design an individualized treatment plan that considers your unique diagnosis, as well as your health care preferences and lifestyle.
Every ORA hip and knee specialist takes a conservative approach to treatment that focuses on non-surgical treatment options first. We offer the latest advances in non-surgical therapies, including physical therapy to help stretch and strengthen the muscles and ligaments that facilitate the movement of the joints, joint injections to reduce pain and inflammation at the injury site, and medication to provide everyday relief from discomfort. In the event surgery is necessary to fully restore joint function. ORAâ€™s experienced orthopedic surgeons will carefully explain your options and help you make an informed decision. We perform a wide range of surgical treatments from minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to total joint replacements.
When you visit an ORA hip and knee specialist, you can trust that you will receive the finest service possible at every stage of your care, from diagnosis to recovery. The well-being of our patients is our utmost focus. We encourage you to ask questions about your treatment and share any concerns you may have, because your satisfaction and healthy recovery is our success.
