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

To diagnose the extent of injury to your wrist, your doctor may take X-rays or an MRI. Then they may stabilize your bones with a splint or cast. For a more complicated fracture, your orthopedic surgeon may insert wires, screws or a bone graft to set your bones and stimulate your healing. They may take periodic X-rays or CT scans to confirm your bone is healing properly.
