An orthopedic doctor cares for the entire musculoskeletal system: bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscles, nerves, and skin. As a general orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Barbara Bergin can treat most orthopedic injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including knee injuries, shoulder injuries, sports injuries, work injuries, orthopedic trauma and fractures, pulled muscles, joint pain, arthritis, and more.
Her approach to orthopedic medicine is to not only resolve your symptoms and facilitate your recovery, but also to educate you about how to stay fit and prevent injuries. Many patients will also work with a physical therapist who applies the education and training exercises that Dr. Bergin recommends or Dr. Bergin will teach you simple exercise to do at home.
