The Lakeside Orthopedics Team is with you every step of the way
Get experienced, one-to-one care from evaluation to rehab
Orthopedic problems range from the simple to the complex—joint and back pain…fractures…arthritis. No matter what the situation, your Lakeside orthopedist and orthopedics team will be there every step of the way. You’ll deal with specialists who know your case inside and out, whether you’re getting an initial evaluation or regaining your strength after surgery.
Lakeside physicians work closely with patients and their families, often seeing them multiple times during treatment, surgery, or rehabilitation. You’ll get to know your doctor very well—and vice versa. As importantly, you’ll probably have your surgery done right at the hospital, close to home.
You’ll receive physical therapy at Lakeside, too. That means your doctor can keep a close watch on your progress and even collaborate with your physical therapist to design a customized rehab program. Exercise therapy, treatments like moist heat or electrical stimulation, education, and other techniques help you improve function, ease pain, and promote healing.
Experienced orthopedists and physical therapists for adults and children
All Lakeside orthopedists are well trained, board certified, and experienced. Indeed, they each have spent many years in practice, developing their skills and maintaining their knowledge of current orthopedic techniques and treatments. Your physical therapist is a college-trained health professional licensed by New York State.
