Additional Information About This Offer:
What is an Orthopedist?
Orthopedic doctors specialize in diagnosis and treatment of problems of the musculoskeletal system, such as diseases or injuries of bones, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves and muscles.
Some, but not all orthopedic doctors perform surgery on injured parts of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic doctors strive to help patients achieve maximum function of the musculoskeletal system using medications, physical therapy and surgery.
When is it time to visit your Orthopedic Surgeon?
So often people go to the emergency room rather than go directly to an orthopedic surgeon, also know as an Orthopedist, or simple "Ortho". This is often an unnecessary step in all but the most significant injuries. If you get in a car accident and have significant injuries, we highly recommend the ER. If you think you broke your ankle or twisted your knee, then come straight to an orthopedic surgeon and save yourself the cost and time of going to the local ER.
What Types of problems to Orthopedic Surgeons treat?
Orthopedists treat a wide variety of bone and joint problems. Dr. Steingart has expertise in these areas, as well as spinal and cervical injuries. He treats traumas such as broken bones, sprained ankles and sports injuries. He also treat s normal aging related conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis, along with infections and bone cancer.
As an osteopathic orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Steingart strives to give a holistic approach to the human body. Therefore, he may find what appears to be unrelated parts of your body the cause of your orthopedic problem. He also performs corrective orthopedic surgery.
Orthopedic surgeons work in a variety of settings, such as small private practices, hospitals and clinics. Most FairCareMD Orthopedic surgeons work in hospitals, private clinics and surgicenters. Dr. Steingart works in all three.
Following graduation from medical school, most doctors complete a residency or internship. A residency is a form of paid on-the-job training. According to the University of Iowa, most candidates to become orthopedic doctors complete a residency in orthopedics lasting five years. Certification from the American Board of Medical Specialties can be obtained after residency has been completed and by passing written and oral exams.
In addition to general orthopedic surgeons, there are sub-specialists who work only on one area like hands or shoulders. However, most orthopedic injuries do not require a subspecialist. An excellent orthopedic surgeon can handle most issues and will refer out cases that require sub-specialists. Dr. Steingart has subspecialty training in endoscopic laser spine, and sports medicine. He performs, joint replacements, pediatric orthopedics, fractured bone repair, spinal surgery, joint surgery, as well as foot and ankle surgery and carpal tunnel syndome. He teaches medical students from around the country.
Doctors wishing to specialize in orthopedic surgery usually complete an internship or residency of 1 year in general medicine or surgery and specialization is followed by 4 years training in orthopedic surgery.
Dr. Steingart has completed his training with an internship of various fields such as pediatrics, internal medicine, rheumatology, and general surgery, followed by a four year orthopedic residency. He then was rewarded a fellowship in sports medicine encompassing bone and joint issues. He went on for further training in endoscopic laser spine surgery. His experience and vast knowledge in all of medicine makes him one of the best in his field.
