You have probably heard the terms “orthopedic surgeon” or “orthopedic clinic” but you may not realize exactly what they are or if their services apply to you. According to verywell.com, orthopedics is,
“the medical specialty of treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves.”
So people seeking help from an orthopedic surgeon might have knee trouble, wrist pain, shoulder problems, or hip issues. At OCP Medical Center in Dubai, we seek to treat your pain so you can return to your full range of motion and active lifestyle without pain.
We work with only qualified and experienced orthopedic surgeons, like Dr. Ibo van der Haven from the Netherlands. Our patients might be seeking help for a sports related injury or pain that developed over time for other reasons. You may be hesitant to see an orthopedic surgeon because you are afraid of hearing you need surgery or you can’t return to your normal activities. But rest assured, our doctors want to see you restored and will do everything in their power to get you back to where you want to be physically.
Before meeting with an orthopedic surgeon, it is important to gather a few things to bring with you. Make sure you bring any notes if you have already consulted with another orthopedic surgeon or your primary care physician. Also gather any imaging you have, like X-rays or MRIs. This will save you both time and money. You should also be prepared to share a brief timeline of when the issue began and how it progressed and have any questions ready to ask.
