Arizona Joint and Spine Hospital specializes in orthopedics. What is Orthopedics you ask? Well in general terms it is the study of the musculoskeletal system. The word orthopedics is derived from the Greek work ‘ortho’ which means straight and ‘pedics’ which comes from the word ‘pais’ meaning children. Early study of orthopedics was actually brought about to treat children who were crippled or had debilitating diseases. Today’s orthopedic doctors treat everyone, no matter their age which gives us a broad base of experience. We here at Arizona Joint and Spine Hospital take the time to get to know everyone one of our patients so that we know just how to help them live an active life no matter what they are being treated for.
