Orthopaedic Surgery & Rehabilitation in Northwest Wyoming

Making Your Health a Priority

Orthopaedists are experts in sports injuries, arthritis, joint replacement, and anything that involves the musculoskeletal system (the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues). At Cody Regional Health, we use proven diagnostic procedures and state-of-the-art technology to determine what is causing your bone or muscle pains so we can put together your customized treatment plan. We will always recommend the least invasive treatments, except in cases where surgery is the recommended first-line treatment. However, many orthopaedic conditions can be treated with “RICE” – that is, rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the injured extremity.

Orthopaedic Conditions We Treat

We treat the following types of injuries:

  • Foot and Ankle Injuries: Foot and ankle injuries include the injuries in the leg below the knee. They are especially common among athletes who play sports such as football, hockey, and skating. Treatment for some of these conditions may be orthotics, braces, physical therapy, injections, or surgery. Common sports injuries include sprains and strains, ankle fractures, and Achilles tendonitis.
  • Shoulder Injuries: Shoulder pain may be from a torn ligament or dislocation. These may be caused by overuse of the shoulder while playing sports. Simple pain or acute injuries may be treated with conservative treatment, and chronic injuries may require surgical treatment.
  • Hip Injuries: Fractures of the femur bone, labral tear affecting the hip. These injuries require immediate medical intervention to avoid further complications. Rehabilitation programs and physical therapy is often recommended following the medical intervention, where you need to perform specific exercises to strengthen the muscles and improve the movements.
  • Knee Injuries: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a major stabilizing ligament in the knee which may tear with overuse or from a sports injury. Other common knee injuries are cartilage damage and meniscal tears. Knee injuries may require surgical intervention performed using open surgical or minimally invasive techniques. Your surgeon will recommend you for physical therapy to strengthen your muscles, improve elasticity, and improve the movements of the bones and joints.

Conservative Treatments & Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Total Joint Replacement is a surgical procedure where damaged joints are removed and replaced with metal, plastic, or ceramic devices. Patients may undergo joint replacement procedures for dysfunctional hips, knees, and shoulders. Joint replacement is considered as a treatment option when severe joint pain or dysfunction is not alleviated by less-invasive therapies.

When only some of the joints are damaged, a surgeon may be able to repair or replace just the damaged parts. When the entire joint is damaged, a total joint replacement is done. To replace a total hip or knee joint, a surgeon removes the diseased or damaged parts and inserts artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

With less intrusiveness into the body combined with the skill in using a variety of techniques to operate, it means patients experience less pain, fewer complications, and shorter hospital stays, and faster heal time.
