Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that involves the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Common orthopedic procedures include the evaluation for neck, mid back, lower back, upper extremities, lower extremities, knee, shoulder, or hip. The practitioners at Cicero Ortho-Med Center offer more than simple diagnostics.
