Sports Medicine & Joint Pain Treatment

In August 2018, Methodist Health began a partnership with Orthopaedic Associates to bring new resources and programming to Methodist Health while expanding access to highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons.

Orthopaedic Associates works with Methodist Health to grow and enhance their orthopaedic service line. The program is supported by multiple surgeons. All surgeons are board-certified or board-eligible physicians from Orthopaedic Associates in Henderson, providing specialties including sports medicine, spine, foot and ankle, and reconstructive hand. Orthopaedic Associates also offers diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, casting and durable medical equipment, plus scheduled patient visits five days a week.

Services include:

  • Hip Replacement and Hip Revision Surgery
  • Anterior Hip Replacement
  • Knee Replacement and Knee Revision Surgery
  • Hand/Microsurgery
  • Arthroscopic Surgery
  • Joint Injections
  • Sports Medicine
  • Foot and Ankle Care

We also have a dedicated joint replacement program for patients suffering from severe joint pain. Patients are referred to this program only when more conservative treatments have failed or are unlikely to produce results.


When Do I Need to See an Orthopaedist?

Orthopaedists treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system, which consists of the skeletal system, muscles, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissues. If you suffer from pain in the muscles, joints, or tendons, you may be better served seeing and orthopaedist than your regular primary care physician.

People often schedule appointments with an orthopaedist when dealing with the following:

  • A sports-related injury
  • Difficulty moving
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Foot and ankle pain

When treating these and other musculoskeletal conditions, our orthopaedists only use surgery as a last resort. In most cases, aches and pains can be effectively treated through conservative treatments such as pain injections and physical therapy. We carefully evaluate every patient’s condition before planning treatment.
