General Orthopedics

If a person lives long enough, they will have issues with their bones and joints. That’s a fact of life. General orthopedics is a collection of medical services that address the common joint aches, muscle sprains and strains, and bone fractures that nearly everyone experiences.

Suppose your child breaks an arm at soccer practice; one of our general orthopedic physicians can make sure it heals correctly. Or, if arthritis attacks your joints, we can take care of that, too. Our doctors can treat your injuries or chronic pain issues even if you aren’t sure where that pain originates. We can also accommodate your needs if you’re looking for a specific orthopedic specialist.

The Orthopaedic Institute of Western Kentucky (OIWK) has a history of outstanding work in general orthopedics. In fact, our physicians have 17 collective decades of experience. They have used that expertise to build the Institute’s reputation as one of the best providers for orthopedic care in the region.

This strong reputation has helped us attract the most skilled doctors. Our general orthopedic physicians are not only trained in this area but they each have acquired additional education as well in an orthopedic specialty, such as sports medicine; or hand and upper extremity.

General Orthopedics

If your injury or condition requires another specialized physician, our doctors can refer you to a colleague within the OIWK network. You can simply go down the hall instead of across town or across the state, making your healthcare experience easier and more convenient.

Schedule Your Appointment

Schedule an appointment with any OIWK general orthopedics physician and start working on a plan to feel better and get back to your normal lifestyle.
