Orthopedic care

Orthopedists are doctors who take care of the entire musculoskeletal system. They diagnose and treat conditions such sprains, strains, broken bones, arthritis and osteoporosis. Some of the treatments they offer include recommending lifestyle changes, applying casts and performing surgeries, such as ligament repairs or total joint replacements.

Orthopedic surgery

Our orthopedists always suggest the least invasive treatment methods possible. However, to relieve pain and increase range of motion for some conditions, surgery can be the best option. One of the most common and effective surgical procedures we offer is joint replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery

We offer joint replacement procedures to help patients with joint injuries and arthritis return to a pain-free life. During joint replacement, an orthopedic surgeon removes parts of a damaged or arthritic joint and replaces those parts with a prosthesis (artificial joint). We perform total and partial knee and hip replacements at our hospitals.

Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery

Our hospital offers minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using the anterior approach. In this procedure, the surgeon accesses the hip joint through an incision on the front of the hip. This approach does not displace muscle tissue, resulting in smaller scars and shorter recovery times than traditional hip replacement surgery.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

We offer inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, including physical and occupational therapy. Physical therapy and rehabilitation services are often combined with pain management techniques to relieve pain and increase mobility without surgery.

Our physical therapists work with our patients' healthcare teams to provide customized treatments. Together, the physical therapist and patient will set goals for range of motion, balance and other signs of progress. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are also used to help patients recover from orthopedic surgery.

Sports medicine

Leading an active lifestyle is an important part of staying healthy, being fit and reducing stress. Our staff is highly experienced in sports medicine and researches the latest recovery and rehabilitation methods to get patients back on their feet when exercise and sports-related injuries occur.
