Up Clinc’s Orthopedic Services Shanghai
Orthopedics is an important discipline in clinical medicine, specializing in the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the skeletal and muscular system. Orthopedics use drugs, surgery, and physical methods to maintain and develop the normal form and function of the musculoskeletal system, and treat injuries and illnesses of this system.
The Orthopedics Department at Up Clinic has sourced international doctors from Europe and the United States and experts from Shanghai top three hospitals, with evidence-based medicine as the core concept, adhering to the principle of “benefiting patients”, and providing first-class professional medical services for orthopedic patients.
With regards to different conditions, orthopedic doctors have a variety of interventions to choose from. Common interventions includes physical therapy for common muscular conditions, bracing for immobilization or joint stability, joint injection for anti-inflammation purposes, manual reduction for join dislocation or fractures, microscopic surgery for structural damages.
At UP Clinic, our orthopedic doctors follow evidence-based clinical best practice, prioritizing physical therapy or arthroscopic surgery in patients’ best interest. Our sports medicine doctors put emphasis on the coordination with our physical therapist in order to plan, carry out the treatment, and follow up with our patients. All services are accessible under one roof.
What to expect?
Orthopedics is similar to Sports medicine; X-ray, CT scan, MRI, and diagnostic ultrasound are commonly used for the diagnosis of different conditions. For example, X-ray and CT are better at diagnosing bone related pathologies. However, MRI can make soft tissues and intervertebral discs visible, and diagnostic ultrasound is the most convenient at diagnosing soft tissue damage, for example, a ligament injury.
At Up Clinic, orthopedic doctors can take advantage of the diagnostic ultrasound and are able to immediately diagnosis our patients, or arrange x-ray, CT or MRI scans as needed by our customer service team.
Common Orthopedic Conditions
Common orthopedic conditions include fractures, soft issue injuries, cervical spine or lumbar spine diseases, degenerative diseases, arthritis, and overuse injuries.
