Conditions & Treatments
We depend so much on our hands, feet and joints in our everyday activities – and when that use is compromised by an injury or chronic condition, the loss of function can hurt as much as the actual pain itself. At Rochester Regional Health, our orthopaedic teams are committed to bringing you the full functionality you need, and the lasting relief you deserve.
Foot and Ankle
One out of every four bones in our bodies are found in our feet, along with 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. A structural flaw or injury in the foot or ankle can cause significant problems – and can require a specialized team to provide relief.
Rochester Regional Health offer a single, convenient access point for comprehensive foot and ankle care. Our specialists provide exceptional surgical and non-surgical treatments for the widest range of conditions. We are committed to helping you connect with the right providers at the right time.

Common foot and ankle conditions
Hand and Wrist
The hands and wrists are involved in nearly every daily activity, from gripping a glass or typing an email to holding a loved one’s hand while crossing a street. With complex connections to nerves, ligaments and tendons, our hands are among the most sensitive parts of our bodies, making them highly susceptible to injury from accidents, misuse and overuse. Chronic or acute pain in the hand or wrist can make common activities of daily living difficult and sometimes impossible.

Shoulder and Elbow
The shoulder is the body’s most complex and unstable joint, and is easily injured. Elbow injuries are most common among adults and children. Our reliance on these joints can lead to a range of serious injuries and conditions. With early diagnosis and treatment, you’ll reduce your chances of complications and possible loss of function.

Hip and Knee
The largest joints in the human body, hips and knees must support our weight with every step. When an injury or degenerative condition occurs, pain in these joints can seriously affect the ability to move easily and participate in even simple activities.
Common hip and knee conditions
No matter what your diagnosis, our highly trained orthopaedic teams will work with you to carefully develop a personalized treatment plan that relieves pain and restores function.
Depending on your condition and recovery goals, non-surgical and surgical treatments may include a comprehensive consultation, followed by physical therapy or other therapeutic measures; minimally invasive techniques like arthroscopy that can be conducted on an outpatient basis; or podiatric or orthopaedic procedures such as tendon and cartilage repair or joint replacement.
