If I see a surgeon, will I have to have surgery?

No. Our surgeons take a conservative approach to treatment.


While we have one of the best surgical teams in the area, surgery is not usually their first recommendation for treatment.

You can trust our surgeons to:

  • talk to you
  • find the cause of your pain
  • recommend a treatment plan that meets your activity goals

Your treatment plan may include medications, physical therapy and pain management therapy. It may also include minimally invasive or a joint replacement surgery. Your orthopedic specialist will discuss your condition and recommend the treatment that is best for you.

You can be assured Affinity’s orthopedic experts will learn about your life and listen to your preferences. Then, together you will decide the next step in your pain relief program.
