Orthopedic FAQ

Whether you’re recovering from orthopedic surgery or considering consulting with one of our doctors, we want you to have the information you need.

  • I have older imaging tests. Can you use them?

Our orthopedic team can tell if your older tests are still useful. If appropriate, we make every effort to use these older scans.

  • I have a complex care condition. Can an orthopedist still help?

Because Adventist Health offers a comprehensive care network, we collaborate with neurologists and other specialists as we determine the best way to care for your condition. If you need a referral, we can make recommendations based on our working relationships with other doctors.

  • What is arthroscopic surgery?

In arthroscopic surgery, your doctor makes a small incision and inserts a thin tube with a camera and tools. This enables the doctor to diagnose orthopedic problems and perform some surgeries. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of joint problems including torn or damaged cartilage, joint lining inflammation, torn ligaments, joint scarring and loose bone fragments.

  • Do you offer pain management treatments?

We never want you to be in unnecessary pain. Whether we treat you with anti-inflammatory injections or prescribe medication after orthopedic surgery, our team will carefully monitor and manage your pain.

  • I had surgery at another orthopedic hospital. Can I complete my rehabilitation at Adventist Health?

Yes. Contact us to get started with orthopedic rehabilitation at Adventist Health.

  • How can I get my medication refilled?

Contact our orthopedic office. If necessary, we can help you refill the prescription.
