At Randolph Orthopedic and Sports Medicine practice, we think your bones and joints are pretty important. Maybe more important than you realize. The bones and joints are part of what is called, the musculoskeletal system of the body. While it may take an injury or the pains of aging for you to give much thought to your musculoskeletal system, it’s pretty much all we think about.
Made up of the body’s bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue, the musculoskeletal system supports your body in an upright position, allowing you to move about and protect vital organs, such as your brain and heart. Your bones also serve as the main storage place for vital minerals, like calcium and phosphorus, and contains the critical components of the body’s blood supply.
Now that you see how Randolph Orthopedics and Sports Medicine thinks of your bones and joints, you understand why our doctors have devoted their lives to the study of orthopedics and the treatment of musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries and degenerative diseases. All our Asheboro orthopedic surgeons have completed a fellowship in orthopedic medicine, meaning they have advanced training to support you in your orthopedic time of need. With fellowships in sports medicine or joint replacement, our surgeons bring exceptional training and caring to patients.
