Learn More About Your Condition

There are a wide variety of injuries and conditions – ranging from broken bones to congenital disorders – that can damage your musculoskeletal system and impact your mobility.

The orthopedists at Loma Linda University Medical Center’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery understand that pain can inhibit your movement and thereby affect your quality of life.

With that in mind, our orthopedic specialists work together in multidisciplinary teams to provide rigorous diagnostic evaluation and analysis before choosing your course of treatment. Depending on your needs, treatment may include some combination of nutrition, exercise, surgical or non-surgical procedures and mind-body research.
