Orthopaedic Evaluation

Your orthopaedic surgeon is trained to diagnose and treat any injury, deformity, or disease that interrupts the musculoskeletal system


Your musculoskeletal system -- which is comprised of 206 bones connected by joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves -- protects your internal organs, supports your weight, and allows you to move. It’s a complex, interdependent system where even a minor disruption can result in discomfort and physical limitation.

General orthopaedics covers all kinds of common and complex conditions that affect said system like:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Cartilage and ligament tears
  • Bursitis and tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Congenital defects and abnormalities
  • Bone and soft tissue tumors

Administering the right treatment starts with a detailed evaluation. Thanks to Mi-eye, Susquehanna Orthopaedics doctors are able to apply arthroscopy in knee and shoulder evaluations to ensure accurate diagnosis.

Mi-eye costs almost as much as a high-end smartphone, but it is fully reimbursed by Medicare and private plans. The clarity and image quality is unparalleled, and beats the MRI in different aspects such as results being viewed in real time.
