Dr. Cummings seeks to exhaust non-surgical treatments prior to pursuing surgical intervention. Many joint pains, even from severe arthritis can be adequately treated without surgery. Weight loss, medications, physical therapy, home exercise programs, various injections, bracing and at times assistive walking devices can enable patients to live active lifestyles and avoid surgery.
