Frequently Asked Questions

Orthopedic surgeons are devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Some orthopedists are generalists, while others specialize in certain areas of the body, such as:

  • Hip and knee
  • Foot and ankle
  • Shoulder and elbow
  • Hand
  • Spine

Orthopedic surgeons explore nonsurgical options first, such as pain medication or rehabilitation. They also have the expertise to perform surgery to repair an injury or correct a condition, if necessary.

Musculoskeletal pain is the number one reason why people visit their doctors each year.

Many people know that orthopedic surgeons treat broken bones, and replace painful joints, but did you know that orthopedic surgeons also treat patients for these problems?

  • Sports injuries
  • Back pain, ruptured disks, and spinal stenosis
  • Bone tumors
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, hand arthritis, and hand injuries
  • Club foot, bow legs, and hip dysplasia
  • Orthopedic trauma
  • Limb lengthening
  • Achilles tendon injuries, bunions, and foot and ankle injuries
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis

To learn about the treatment and management of these and many other orthopedic conditions, visit The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) patient education website, orthoinfo.org.

An orthopedic surgeon is an expert with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and the treatment (both nonsurgical and surgical) of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

A qualified hand specialist is trained to diagnose and treat all problems related to the different structures in the hand, wrist, and forearm.

The hand is a unique area of the human body that is made up of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the hand to function well.

The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the hand.

Hand specialists have received additional specialized training in the treatment of hand problems. Many also have expertise with problems of the elbow, arm, and shoulder. Some treat only children, some treat only adults, and some treat both. Common problems treated include:

  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • tennis elbow
  • wrist pain
  • sports injuries of the hand and wrist
  • fractures of the hand, wrist, and forearm
  • trigger finger

Other problems treated can include arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, and congenital limb differences (birth defects).

Not all problems treated by a hand specialist need surgery. They often recommend nonsurgical treatments, such as medication, splints, therapy, or injections.

If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or arm, or if you have other upper-extremity related concerns, you may want to consult a hand specialist.

The upper extremity consists of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. The upper limb is divided into three regions that consist of the arm, located between the shoulder and elbow joints; the forearm, which is between the elbow and wrist joints; and the hand, which is located distal to the wrist.

Dr. Besh is fellowship-trained and a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in Hand, Wrist, and Elbow conditions. He is one of the few hand surgeons in Silicon Valley that has the Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand and has over 15 years of experience focused on orthopedic hand conditions. 

Dr. Besh is an expert in upper extremity and hand conditions. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your hands, fingers, wrist, or elbow, or have additional concerns, contact our office for an appointment.

Occupational Medicine (also known as Occupational Health) is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Physicians trained in Occupational Medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so that they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers to keep business running and employees safe and healthy on the job.

FORM Ortho offers a wide range of occupational health services such as post-offer physical exams, drug screening, surveillance testing for OSHA, and many other medical services to support employers and their employees.

At FORM Ortho, we understand the workers’ compensation process and we are set up to report as needed for workers’ compensation claims.

Our team of specialists will provide you with an immediate diagnosis of the injury, corrective treatment, and medication if needed. We’ll also discuss long-term options for recovery.

A sports medicine physician has significant specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. They are ideally suited to provide comprehensive medical care for athletes, sports teams or active individuals who are simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Sports medicine physicians specialize solely in non-surgical sports medicine and serve as team physicians at the youth level, NCAA, NFL, MLB, NBA, WNBA, MLS, and NHL, as well as with Olympic teams.

A sports medicine physician can maximize non-operative treatment, guide appropriate referrals to physical and occupational therapies, and if necessary, expedite referral to an orthopedic/sports surgeon.

Common examples of musculoskeletal problems include:

  • Acute injuries (such as ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries, and fractures)
  • Overuse injuries (such as rotator cuff and other forms of tendonitis, stress fractures)
  • Medical and injection therapies for osteoarthritis

Sports Medicine physicians have also received additional training in the non-musculoskeletal aspects of sports medicine. Common examples of these include:

  • Concussion (mild traumatic brain injury) and other head injuries
  • Athletes with chronic or acute illness (such as infectious mononucleosis, asthma or diabetes)
  • Nutrition, supplements, ergogenic aids, and performance issues
  • Exercise prescription for patients who want to increase their fitness
  • Injury prevention
  • “Return to play” decisions in the sick or injured athlete
  • Recommendations on safe strength training and conditioning exercises
  • Healthy lifestyle promotion

Additionally, we have a full-service Occupational Medicine clinic that focuses on work-related injuries and illnesses. We can even assist you with Workers’ Compensation injuries and claims.
