Helpful FAQs

Here at WCMI Ortho, we don’t just aim to heal our patients; we wish to help educate them on their conditions, the different treatments that are available to them, and what to expect on the road to recovery. This is why we have composed a frequently asked question, “FAQ” page, where our most common conditions and treatments are discussed in detail.

What is an orthopedic surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon is a medical doctor who has received up to 14 years of education in the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system (bones and joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage).

Some orthopedic surgeons practice general orthopedics, while others specialize in treating certain body parts such as the foot and ankle, hand and wrist, spine, knee, shoulder, or hip. Some orthopedists may also focus on a specific population such as pediatrics, trauma, or sports medicine.

If I go to the surgeon, will I definitely need surgery?

Absolutely not! Surgery is only considered when both the patient and the surgeon decide it is the best solution. There are times when surgery is urgent, but those situations are easy to identify. The majority of care provided by WCMI leans towards the conservative side.

The view shared by the providers at WCMI Orthopedics is that the goal of treatment is to maintain the quality of the patient’s life in the least invasive way. Remember, it’s your body, and you need to be involved in the decision-making process about your care. We like to say it’s a team effort.

Shoulder Care

The shoulder is the most flexible part of the human body with the widest range of motion. It consists of three bones: the humerus, the scapula (shoulder blade), and the clavicle (collarbone). Intertwined within these bones are muscles, ligaments, and tendons that allow movement and flexibility.

If any of these components become inflamed or damaged, it can cause severe pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. The providers at WCMI Orthopedics are shoulder specialists who have vast amounts of experience and the ability to create a recovery plan that best suits each patient’s individual needs.

Sports Medicine

What is a sports medicine physician?

A sports medicine physician is a doctor with specialized training who promotes lifelong fitness and wellness and encourages prevention of illness and injury. This physician helps the patient maximize function and minimize disability and time away from sports, work, or school.

Sports medicine physicians have a primary specialty in Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, most of whom obtain 1-2 years of additional training in sports medicine through accredited fellowship (subspecialty) programs in sports medicine.

Physicians, who are board-certified in Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, or Pediatrics, are then eligible to take a subspecialty qualification examination in Sports Medicine.

What’s the difference between an orthopedic surgeon and a sports medicine physician?

Both are well trained in musculoskeletal medicine.

Sports medicine physicians specialize in the non-operative medical treatment of musculoskeletal sports conditions. Approximately 90% of all sports injuries are non-surgical.

Orthopedic surgeons are trained in both non-operative medical treatment and the operative treatment of these conditions.

Sports medicine physicians can expedite referral to an orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Canillas and Dr. Marsh within our group function as sports medicine physicians. They treat all musculoskeletal conditions, and when surgery is necessary, they can refer the patient to Dr. Daniel Moynihan for quick assessment and treatment.
