Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics (sometimes spelled orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedics) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders (Wikipedia).

The Surgical Services department at Virginia Gay Hospital provides many types of surgical services, such as General Surgery (e.g., hernia repairs, gall bladder, colon surgery, and appendectomies), with Dr. Lariviere; Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Surgery with Dr. Viner; and Podiatric Surgery with Dr’s Tanner, Arosz, and Dr. Siebrecht.

Many people may not realize Virginia Gay Hospital also provides Orthopedic Surgical Services. The Orthopedic surgeons (Dr’s Fehrle and Pilcher) at VGH provide many of the same surgical services you’d expect at an urban clinic, these include: arthroscopic surgery (also known as “knee scopes”) for torn ligaments, carpal tunnel surgery, rotator cuff repair, and joint replacement (e.g., knee/hip replacement).

If you’ve been putting off talking with your healthcare provide about an ache or pain, don’t put it off any longer. Contact your VGH clinic today for a check-up.
