Orthopedics is one of South Lake Hospital's stand-out specialties. From the highly-trained group of orthopedic surgeons servicing South Lake County to our expertise in rehabilitation, we serve a wide variety of orthopedic needs from common injuries to sports injuries.

Overview

The first priority is to relieve your pain and develop a plan to help your knee heal properly. Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication, crutches, and exercises to help you maintain flexibility and avoid the loss of muscle mass in your leg while your knee heals. Our physical therapists may use ultrasound or massage to help your ligament heal. If it’s torn, your doctor may recommend surgery.
