New Jersey Orthopedic Surgeon Advises Athletes on Choosing the Best Physician

Dr. Anthony Petrosini Cautions Against the Term "Sports Medicine" and Encourages Active Participation From Patients In Selecting Orthopedic Care

WALL, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey, a team of highly trained specialists provide a wide array of services including joint replacement, pain management, and treatment of athletic injuries. Due to the range of their expertise, these New Jersey orthopedic surgeons see a variety of patient concerns and injuries on a daily basis.

According to Dr. Anthony Petrosini, the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey is dedicated to treating injuries that occur during athletic training or competition, ranging from shoulder and knee surgery to rehabilitation for hands and hips. The most common injuries the doctors at the practice address are soft tissue injuries around the knee, shoulder, and ankle. These soft tissue injuries are the most common because these joints are prone to experience trauma and are often overused in training for competitive or rigorous sport.

Once a patient has suffered a sports injury, selecting a medical practitioner can be challenging or confusing. Dr. Petrosini believes that it is most important to find a clinician who has a passion for treating athletes, and is skilled in both operative and non-operative treatment methods. At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey, the majority of athletic injuries are treated conservatively with joint protection, recuperation, and physical therapy. For athletes who are deemed fit to continue participating, joints can be protected from further injury by bracing, taping, or padding.

Dr. Petrosini highlights that many medical practitioners now use the term "sports medicine" to describe their practice. While other clinicians - such as family medical physicians, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and physical therapists - are all involved in treating sports injuries of some sort, the term "sports medicine" can be confusing for a patient looking to address a specific type of injury. Dr. Petrosini recommends that patients take an active role in ensuring that they are obtaining proper treatment and seek out a practitioner who is board-certified in their needed area of expertise. "A physician who has had a fellowship in sports medicine (a specialty year after residency devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries) is often a good place to start," says Dr. Petrosini.

If a patient's expectations are not discussed with the physician upfront, patients may be dissatisfied even if they receive proper treatment. Dr. Petrosini urges patients at the New Jersey orthopedic surgery practice to ask their physician questions about the recommended treatment, discuss their post-recovery expectations, and clearly communicate their anticipated levels of activity. From Dr. Petrosini's experience, many patients expect to heal from injuries quickly, when the recovery process often takes longer than patients assume.
