Treatment & Care

At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad City area, we take a conservative approach that focuses on non-surgical treatment options and therapies, when possible. Your elbow and shoulder doctor will perform a thorough evaluation and suggest treatment options based on your diagnosis, lifestyle and health care preferences.

In the event that surgery is necessary, rest assured that your elbow and shoulder doctor will employ the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to minimize incision lengths, improve your recovery and provide the best outcome possible. We encourage that you ask questions about the care options we recommend because we believe partnering with you is key to the best treatment plan that gets you back to everyday life.
