Orthopedics Q & A

What is orthopedics?

Orthopedic medicine focuses on diseases or injuries of the musculoskeletal system. This complex system enables physical movement and includes:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Nerves

Orthopedic injuries can cause chronic pain, prevent you from performing everyday activities, and reduce your quality of life. As a physician trained in orthopedic medicine, Dr. Alexander can diagnose musculoskeletal problems and works with you to not only treat them, but to recover and prevent them from occurring again.

What are common orthopedic injuries?

There’s a wide variety of orthopedic injuries. Several factors cause orthopedic injuries including congenital disorders, sports injuries, trauma, or repetitive use.

Some common orthopedic injuries include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Hip injuries like greater trochanteric bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ligament strains and tendonitis
  • Shoulder injuries like torn rotator cuffs
  • Knee injuries like meniscus tears or torn ACLs

Orthopedic injuries can occur in men, women, and children of all ages. Dr. Alexander’s experience in orthopedic medicine covers pediatric, adult, and geriatric care.

How are orthopedic injuries diagnosed and treated?

During your appointment, Dr. Alexander reviews your symptoms and performs a physical examination. Based on your condition, he might recommend additional diagnostics like digital X-rays or blood tests.

Whenever possible, Dr. Alexander brings a conservative, evidence-based approach to treating orthopedic injuries. Depending on your condition, he might recommend:

  • Medication
  • Restorative exercises
  • Chiropractic manipulation or massage
  • Ultrasound or laser therapy
  • Nerve blocks or steroid injections
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Referral for surgery when appropriate


Dr. Alexander also offers stem cell therapy. This regenerative treatment reduces pain and restores function by triggering your body’s natural healing responses. In addition to treating orthopedic injuries, Dr. Alexander provides lifestyle recommendations and prevention strategies to reduce your risk of developing injuries in the future.

For unstable orthopedic injuries that require surgical treatment, Dr. Alexander might recommend:

  • Soft tissue repair: restores tears in ligaments or tendons
  • Fusion: fuses bones together with devices like metal rods
  • Internal fixation: repairs broken bones with screws, pins, or plates
  • Arthroscopy: repairs joint problems using specialized cameras and tools
  • Joint replacement: replaces damaged joints with artificial prosthetic joints

We service patients from all over the DFW area including North Dallas, Addison, Carrollton, Plano, Garland, Irving, Allen, Richardson, and University Park, Highland Park, Frisco and McKinney.
