Orthopaedic Associates of the Lakelands is an orthopedic group that provides sports medicine and orthopedic care for residents of a 7-county area known as “The Lakelands” in the northwest area of South Carolina around Greenwood, SC stretching east to Lake Greenwood. The Lakelands Orthopedic group serves the cities of Greenville, Piedmont, Abbevile, Anderson and Spartanburg, South Carolina. Other patients come from Columbia, SC. The team of orthopedic surgeons is proficient in all joint replacement surgery, and includes hip replacement surgeons, knee replacement surgeons and shoulder replacement surgeons. The hip joint specialists can provide nonsurgical treatment options for relief of hip pain, and if necessary hip replacement surgery using the advanced Mako Robotic System that spares bone during hip joint surgery. The orthopedic surgeons provide knee replacement surgery, hip replacement surgery and shoulder replacement surgery, including "reverse shoulder replacement surgery”. For hip replacement surgery, the orthopedic surgeons can provide minimally invasive hip replacement to shorten the recovery time and speed return to activity after hip replacement surgery. The orthopedic surgeons who specialize in upper extremity problems address hand pain symptoms (including carpal tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel surgery); elbow pain symptoms (including tennis elbow and golfers elbow); and shoulder pain symptoms, including rotator cuff injury. The orthopedic surgeons who specialize in lower extremity problems can provide nonsurgical treatment options, along with surgery that relieves foot and ankle joint pain and knee pain. Minimally invasive knee surgery can include arthroscopic surgery to treat ligament stain and meniscus tears. The physical therapy team at Orthopaedic Associates of the Lakelands provides home remedies for knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, hand pain and foot pain, along with post-surgery therapy to strengthen joints after surgery. If you’ve been diagnosed with hip, knee or shoulder problems, the orthopedic surgeons at Lakelands Orthopedics can provide a second opinion for knee pain, hip pain or shoulder pain symptoms.
