Orthopedic conditions can include anything from something as seemingly minor as arthritis to something as serious as a fractured hip. Regardless of how seemingly minor the problem might be, all orthopedic conditions can cause major disruptions in one’s life. This is part of the reason why Jason Fond believes that orthopedic surgeons are quality of life specialists whose goal is to help their patients live their lives unaffected by pain or immobility.
Anyone who has been sick or injured knows that the physical discomfort is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how being ill or hurt can make your life miserable. There are few things more frustrating than feeling like life is passing you by while you are lying in bed with a broken bone.
Jason Fond’s career specialty is surgery, but he never tries to push patients into surgery. He realizes that the decision to undergo surgery is a personal one, one that a person needs to make on their own. If, after having listened to his explanation of the procedure and how it relates to their condition, the patient chooses not to undergo surgery, Jason Fond will work with them to help restore their previous quality of life.
No matter what his patient’s particular condition is or what treatment options they decide upon, Jason Fond will do his best to help make sure his patients are able to return to the active lifestyles they knew prior to their condition.
