The enormous cost of injuries and diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system is estimated at $254 billion per year in the United States. The personal cost to individuals who experience these problems is incalculable. More Americans are disabled as a result of musculoskeletal conditions than any other group of disorders.
The Bone and Joint Center in Albany was established to bring together the expertise and services needed to effectively treat common and complex musculoskeletal disorders. It is a single source for comprehensive care by some of the region’s most highly regarded board-certified medical specialists in the areas of Orthopaedic Surgery, Physiatry, Rheumatology, and Radiology.
The center also includes the services of licensed health care professionals in the areas of physical therapy as well as prosthetics and orthotics. The staff works together in a uniquely collegial atmosphere, so patients benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to care.
