Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

If you’ve ever injured a bone, joint, or muscle, you know it’s a serious injury – and that your treatment can mean the difference between disability and independence. It’s best to seek out excellent care right away to insure the injury heals correctly.

Our expert orthopedics and sports medicine team is well-equipped to care for patients facing injuries or other conditions in their:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Nerves

Some bone or muscle conditions may just need simple treatments, such as medications and therapy. Others may require surgery, physical therapy, and time off. The sooner you work with an orthopedist – a physician who specializes in bones, muscles, and joints – the better your outcomes will be.

Treating the Whole Person, Not Just the Injury

Your treatment plan will be tailored to relieve pain, build back your strength and coordination, and get you back to your life as quickly as possible.

Our treatment plans also include wraparound care, which addresses any non-medical issues that can stem from a bone or joint condition. This can include:

  • Caregiving advice for your spouse or family
  • Information about community resources that might be helpful

Our surgeons will follow up with you to monitor your condition and provide care as needed, as well.

We also count your primary care provider as an integral part of your care team and encourage you to keep him or her updated on your treatment. If you are with Cotton O’Neil for primary care, your orthopedic specialist’s records that detail your health condition and treatments will be available to your primary doctor through our electronic health record.

Conditions We Treat

Many patients come to us because the nagging pain they’ve overlooked has become too much to bear. Maybe your pain has gone from a dull pain to a constant ache in your bone, muscle or joint.

You may have tried to compensate for the pain by changing the way you sat, walked, or did your favorite activities. Over-the-counter medicines just aren’t helping anymore.

This scenario is most common with arthritis, and also with overuse injuries, such as tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder or runner’s knee.

Serious injuries may occur from trauma like a fall, a car accident, or a sports injury. The pain in your bone, joint or muscle may be severe, and you should get care promptly. This scenario is most common with people who have a fracture or ligament tear.

Treatments for all of these issues can include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Stabilizing wraps, braces or casts
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

Meet Our Team

All of our orthopedic specialists are board certified or board eligible, meaning they have completed extensive training in orthopedic medicine and surgery. Some have received training in subspecialties, such as sports medicine, joint replacement, or spine surgery, to learn complex treatments such as knee, hip, or shoulder reconstruction.

Our orthopedic providers are not just at the top of their field. They are also part of the community. Some of our physicians have served Topeka for 30 years, and are leaders in many community organizations.

You may see them at high schools providing care at athletic events, or giving educational presentations.

Our care extends beyond Topeka. If you don’t live in the Topeka area, we have outreach clinics in various locations.

At these outreach clinics, you can see one of our orthopedic specialists to get diagnosis and treatment.  Patients who just had a surgery may be able to save the trip to Topeka and follow up with their doctors at the closest clinic, as well.
