ORTHOPEDIC MEDICAL CONSULTATION
We take the time to fully understand your situation, your medical history, as well as your goals and priorities. Together, we assess your options and we support you in making the best choices, for you.
Management of fractures and other injuries of the upper and lower limbs, such as meniscal injuries, sprains, tendon tears, etc.
Avoid waiting in emergency rooms: we see you with minimal delay, organize imaging with our partner clinics when necessary, and we coordinate the execution of additional examinations and your treatment with the various stakeholders (pre-surgery preparation, clinics, rehabilitation and return to sports and competition)
When necessary, we provide home visits for people who are fragile or at risk.
Surgery is sometimes necessary to restore the functionality of a joint or for pain relief. We never take surgery lightly and weigh the pros and cons with you.
The keys to a successful surgery? A good indication, appropriate preparation, precise execution and optimal support for rehabilitation.
OUR PARTNER CLINICS
When surgery is required, your operation and your hospitalization can be organized in one of our partner clinics:
Physiotherapy is essential in our practice: in almost nine out of ten cases, a conservative approach is preferable to surgery.
When surgery is planned, we generally offer targeted programs for optimal preparation, as well as in the immediate phase after the intervention to promote optimal recovery of joint mobility and muscle strength.
It helps to relieve pain and fastens recovery of autonomy for transfers and displacements.
A good training will aim in particular at recovering quality of movement, endurance during exercise and safely and effectively return to normal daily, professional and sports activity.
Our occupational therapist will meet with you to identify your specific needs and offer you tailor-made solutions. Her role is to support you to maintain or restore your motor and sensory functions and to allow you to do what you love.
When necessary, she supports you in developing new skills to compensate for lost abilities.
She is involved in our rehabilitation and muscular strengthening program, to which she brings her expertise in balance training and falls prevention.
She also participates in collaboration with the attending physician and other specialists (ophthalmologist, etc.) in the overall assessment of the risk of falling.
She carries out home assessments and advises on ergonomic adaptations, eg for falls prevention.
Finally, she also designs and crafts hand-made custom orthotics and splints.
To all the patients who offered their precious time to keep us informed of their progress and their experience of being treated by us: a huge THANK YOU!
