Talk to Orthopedic Surgeons About These Four Important Topics

Lifestyle changes, sports, accidents, or even repetitive movements may cause damage to the musculoskeletal system. If you have complaints or an injury to muscles, joints, nerves, or bones, you might need to see orthopedic surgeons. Learn how to prepare for your visit and what questions to ask.

1. Medical History

If this is your first orthopedic appointment, you'll want to make sure you bring all your medical history information. This includes any information about previous injuries, diseases, treatments, surgeries, or background information that could help your doctor with the diagnosis.

In addition, advise your doctor of medications you are currently taking and for what purpose. Be sure to bring copies of previous medical records, x-rays or MRI records if they are available.

2. Symptoms

Before your check-up, it is a good idea to make some notes about your symptoms. This helps to refresh your memory, and it assures that you don't miss any important information that the doctor may need for diagnosing your health problem.

The doctor will want to know when you first developed a complaint, how it may have started, and if you are taking pain medications. You should think about whether you've recently changed your physical activities or started playing sports. Perhaps you've taken up a new hobby or even changed jobs that require repetitive movements. Even the smallest lifestyle changes could lead to an injury or condition.

In addition, your surgeon is going to need to know physical specifics about your condition. For instance, he may ask if you are experiencing tingling, numbness, swelling or stiffness in the affected area. You may also need to describe whether you have pain or restricted mobility in an area.

Orthopedic surgeons will also want you to describe if you have pain, where it is located, and if the pain is constant. Be sure to mention whether any particular movement reduces the pain or resolves the complaint.

Lastly, your physician may ask you how badly your condition affects your quality of life. This information may be very helpful to the doctor when making recommendations for your best interests.

3. Diagnosis

After getting a list of your symptoms and tests, your doctor will explain your diagnosis and your options. Make sure you get a clear understanding of your diagnosis and recommended treatments.

You should confirm whether you're a candidate for rehabilitation, non-surgical treatments or surgery. Ask the doctor to explain each option in detail, so you can make an informed decision for your particular situation. Also, make sure you understand the possible side effects of any treatments or choosing no treatments.

4. Surgery Consultation

If you are a candidate for surgery, you should discuss the risks - whether surgery can improve functionality or relieve your pain. Then, you need to decide if regaining functionality or reducing pain outweighs the risks. When visiting orthopedic surgeons, bring all your medical information and a list of clearly defined symptoms for the doctor. Don't forget to bring your insurance or payment information. Always feel free to ask questions about your condition, treatments, and remedies.
