Missoula Bone and Joint and Surgery Center
 

General Orthopedics

Missoula Bone & Joint is home to western Montana’s leading orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists. As general orthopedists, our physicians care for you from head to toe. We diagnose and treat problems of the entire musculoskeletal system: bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

At your first visit, your doctor will want to know the extent of your pain and how it impacts your life. To establish an accurate diagnosis, he may order X-rays or an MRI. Once the doctor has diagnosed your problem, he will discuss the nature of your injury or condition, explain your treatment options, and what you can expect once treatment is complete.

Some of the most common orthopedic conditions we treat include:

Fracture Care

Auto accidents, sports, and falls are the leading causes of fractures. Depending on the severity, some fractures may heal with a cast or a brace, while others may require surgery. Fractures are classified based on how the bone is broken or cracked:

  • Complete Fracture: Bone is broken into separate pieces (clean break)
  • Partial Fracture: Bone is cracked (not completely broken)
  • Open Fracture: Bone is broken and penetrating the skin
  • Compound Fracture: More than one bone is broken

Some of the common fractures we see include:

If you suspect you’ve broken a bone, give us a call right away or visit our orthopedic urgent care clinic for a timely assessment. Fractures need immediate treatment to heal successfully. For your convenience, we have advanced digital X-ray equipment in our office to help diagnose the exact location and type of fracture. If the X-ray is inconclusive, you might need an MRI, which we also have on site.

Watch the process of how a cast is applied at the time of your clinic visit:

At Missoula Bone & Joint, our providers are here for you every step of the way. We have a reputation for being friendly, helpful, professional, and caring,and we will go above and beyond to ensure that all your needs are addressed.
