Frequently Asked Questions

An orthopedic doctor specializes in issues, injuries, and diseases pertaining to the musculoskeletal system. These doctors specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.


Some orthopedists are generalists, while others specialize in certain areas of the body, such as:

  • Hip and Knee
  • Foot and Ankle
  • Shoulder and Elbow
  • Hand and Wrist
  • Spine

Aside from treating broken bones and repairing painful joints, orthopedic doctors also treat patients for other orthopedic problems, including:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Back pain, Ruptured Discs, and Spinal Stenosis
  • Bone Tumors
  • Carpal Tunnel, Hand Arthritis, and Hand Injuries
  • Club Foot, Bow Legs, and Hip Dysplasia
  • Orthopedic Trauma
  • Achilles Tendon Injuries
  • Foot and Ankle Injuries
  • Bunions
  • Arthritis


Typically, an orthopedic doctor explores nonsurgical treatment options first, such as pain medication or physical therapy. If the patient doesn’t respond to nonsurgical treatments, surgical options may be considered.

An orthopedic surgeon is an expert with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.


You should see an orthopedic surgeon if you suffer from long-term tendon, muscle or joint pain in your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, or back, especially if you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms: 

  • Pain in muscles, tendons, or joints that persists for more than a few days.
  • Swelling or bruising around the joint or the location of an injury.
  • Limited range of motion, such as an inability to straighten the back.
  • Joint Deformity
  • Signs of infection, including heat, inflammation, fever, and/or redness.

At Go To Ortho, all of our surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). ABOS Certification demonstrates an Orthopaedic Surgeon’s attainment to high standards for education, knowledge, experience, and skills. Collectively, we have over 50 years of experience dealing with trauma injuries in the Portland area, and our surgeons have privileges at all the major hospitals in Portland, including some surgery centers.


By going directly to Go To Ortho’s orthopedic specialists, patients can avoid extra appointments, as well as the typically higher costs of emergency room visits for non-life threatening injuries. An average visit at Go To Ortho may last approximately 30 minutes, including waiting time and X-ray, if needed. In comparison, the tracking website ER Wait Watcher reports a wait time of 40 to 45 minutes on average at a Portland-area hospital for someone with a broken bone just to receive pain medication, waiting for treatment, or to see a specialist takes much longer.


During an appointment at Go To Ortho, our team of specialists will provide you with an immediate diagnosis of the injury, corrective treatment, and medication, if needed. We’ll also discuss your long-term options for recovery. In other clinics, you may get immediate attention, however, you would then be referred to a specialist for examination at a later date, prolonging wait times and increasing costs in physician visits. Not to mention, Go To Ortho’s physicians typically are the specialists that you would eventually be referred to for your injury anyway. Go To Ortho, therefore, is the go-to place to see qualified specialists from the start for better outcomes and less hassle–getting the care you need when you need it.  It is a more cost-effective way for integrated, streamlined care.


Other added benefits for our patients include

  • We provide stitches, x-ray and cast-splint-brace services on-site.
  • We provide full-service trauma care.
  • We accept walk-in appointments.  No appointment is necessary.
  • We accept most major insurance providers.
  • We can treat patients both in-network and out-of-network.

Knee pain may be considered an emergency if you can’t put weight on your knee, feel sick, or have a fever, or if your knee is red and hot. You may have a fracture or infection. Other symptoms that demand emergency evaluation:

  • Unbearable pain
  • Pain that does not improve with rest
  • Pain that wakes you
  • Drainage
  • Large Wounds
  • Puncture Wounds
  • Swelling, if you are on a blood thinner or have a bleeding disorder

Heel pain is usually the result of repetitive stress and pounding of the heel. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of pain under the heel, and Achilles tendonitis is a common cause of pain behind the heel. Other causes may include arthritis, infection, an autoimmune problem, trauma, or a neurological problem.

The symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome usually include a burning, tingling, itching or numbness sensation in the palm of the hand and thumb or index and middle fingers.

At night time you may feel like your fingers are falling asleep and becoming numb. This happens because you are most relaxed during sleep. When you wake up in the morning, the tingling and numbness sensations in your hand may travel up your forearm to your shoulder.

With carpal tunnel syndrome, symptoms at first may come and go, but over time they tend to occur more often and become worse. Some people may start to feel like their fingers are swollen when they aren’t or they may have intermittent “shocks” in their thumb and fingers.

Over time, carpal tunnel syndrome can also affect your grip and ability to pinch causing you to

  • Drop things more often due to numbness or weakened muscles
  • Have a hard time working with small objects, like the buttons on your shirt
  • Have difficulty making a fist

In severe cases, you may be losing muscle at the base of your thumb or finding it difficult to tell hot from cold by touch.

To learn more, check out our page on Carpal Tunnel.

You should seek emergency care for elbow pain If 

  • The pain doesn’t go away with rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
  • The pain is intense, and you have swelling and bruising around your elbow.
  • The pain, swelling or redness gets worse.
  • You have developed a fever.
  • You have problems using your elbow, such as bending your arm.

These could all be signs of a fractured or dislocated elbow.

Bursitis happens when the bursae, fluid-filled sacs that act as a cushion between bones, tendons, joints, and muscles, become inflamed. 

Bursitis commonly occurs in the shoulders, elbows, ankles, knees, buttocks, hips, and tighs. When it affects the elbow, it is called tennis elbow.

Bursitis is a painful condition that can restrict movement. Symptoms usually include pain that increases with movement or pressure, tenderness, swelling, and loss of movement.

If you have sharp, shooting pains for more than 2 weeks with excessive swelling, bruising, rash or redness in the affected region, you should seek immediate medical care.

A sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments in a joint. Ligaments are tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together. The most common injury is a sprained ankle. A severe sprain can result in a torn ligament.

A strain is a stretching or tearing of tendon or muscle. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. Strains often occur in the lower back and in the hamstring muscle in the back of the thigh.
