Treatments and Procedures

The orthopedic team at Norwalk Hospital uses the latest, most advanced technology available to provide expert treatment, surgical and non-surgical, including sports medicine and the full range of orthopedic conditions. We offer the complete continuum of multidisciplinary care for musculoskeletal conditions, including physical therapy and rehabilitation:

Imaging Procedures

  • X-ray
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • Radiographs: Imaging studies, typically using x-ray, to examine the affected body part and identify the source of pain

Orthopedic Treatments

  • Arthroplasty: Surgery to replace, repair or resurface a joint affected by arthritis.
  • Arthroscopy: A minimally invasive surgical technique to repair injury to a joint
  • Closed reduction: A non-surgical method of setting a fractured bone in place so it can heal.
  • Core decompression: A surgical procedure to treat avascular necrosis by drilling a small hole into the diseased bone, often followed by a bone graft.
  • Fixation: Surgery to implant a permanent rod to secure a broken bone.
  • Joint replacement and partial joint replacement: Surgery to replace, fully or partially, a damaged joint with an artificial one.
  • Medical Management: Medication can be used for pain relief or to address the underlying causes of the inflammation, illness or injury that is causing discomfort.
  • Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF): A two-part surgery to fix broken bones. The first step is putting the bone back in place; the second step is securing it with an internal “fixation” device.
  • Physical Therapy (PT) and/or Occupational Therapy (OT): Physical therapy (PT) focuses on helping your injury or impairment to heal, while occupational therapy (OT) focuses on helping the patient perform activities required in daily life.  (link to Rehab)
  • Steroid injection: An injection of cortisone to provide pain relief in an inflamed joint.
