Orthopedic surgeons specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Some of the more common orthopedic services include:
Our rheumatologists treat diseases and disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, they work with problems involving the joints, soft tissues, certain autoimmune diseases, and the allied conditions of connective tissues. This includes many autoimmune diseases, as these conditions often cause rheumatic issues.
OSMS has partnered with Bellin Health to offer in-house outpatient surgery. For more information, please see the Bellin Orthopedic Surgery Center (BOSC) website at www.bellinosc.com.
OSMS provides infusion services (intravenous therapy) for a variety of medical conditions related to arthritis and osteoporosis. Our experienced and caring staff provide this service under the direct supervision of a physician in a comfortable atmosphere.
OSMS has in house lab services and medical lab technicians for your convenience.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging modality that uses a very large magnet in conjunction with radio frequencies to acquire high quality, cross-sectional images of the human body. Unlike CT scans or traditional X-Rays, MRI uses no ionizing radiation (x-rays). MRI scans are used to diagnose many kinds of conditions, especially since MRI is more sensitive to soft tissue and bone changes than X-Rays. For more information about our MRI, please click here.
To detect osteoporosis accurately, doctors use an enhanced form of X-Ray technology called Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA). DXA bone densitometry is today's established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). DXA is a quick, painless procedure for measuring bone loss.
Bone density is used most often to diagnose low bone mass due to osteoporosis, but this technology can be applied to other orthopedic and rheumatologic conditions. Click here to learn about the Bone Densitometry machine that OSMS uses.
We have two digital radiography machines and one computerized radiography machines in house.
