The human body is remarkably complicated – to the point it would be virtually impossible for any doctor to have advanced knowledge of all areas. As such, we specialize. Podiatrists, for example, specialize in diagnosing and treating medical conditions related to feet and ankles.
Orthopedists are doctors who are trained and experienced in providing diagnoses and care for conditions that related to the musculoskeletal system throughout the body.
Joints, in particular, are features of this body system often impacted by injury and other conditions.
Further, the hip joints can be especially prone to an array of medical issues. When these kinds of problems develop, you may need to seek orthopedic care from Dr. Fujii and other team members here at McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group.
