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.

Introducing robotic-arm joint replacement surgery: A new option for joint pain

If you experience joint pain but have been putting off joint replacement surgery, now is the time to reconsider. Robotic-arm joint replacement surgery is changing the way joint replacement surgery is done.

Robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery is an advancement in the way orthopedic surgeons perform various joint replacements. The system works in conjunction with the surgeon's skilled hands to achieve the precise positioning of the knee implant based on each patient's unique anatomy. This added level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of the joint implant.

Robotic-arm joint replacement surgery is a minimally invasive approach, offering the following benefits:

  • Smaller incisions with reduced scarring and minimal blood loss
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery period
  • Quicker return to daily activities
  • Reduced injury to adjacent tissues

Find an orthopedic specialist, or talk to your doctor to see if robotic-arm joint replacement surgery is right for you.

Orthopedic surgery

We always treat patients with the least invasive method possible. However, sometimes surgical care is the best option. When surgery is recommended, patients can trust that it will be provided by experienced orthopedic surgeons using the latest technologies.

Joint replacement surgery

One of the most common and effective orthopedic procedures we offer is joint replacement surgery. During a joint replacement, an orthopedic surgeon removes parts of a damaged or arthritic joint and replaces those parts with a prosthesis (artificial joint).

The joint replacement procedures performed at our hospital include:

We also offer revision procedures for patients who have had joint replacement surgery and need some or all of the prosthesis replaced.

Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery

We use minimally invasive hip replacement techniques, such as the anterior approach, when possible. With the anterior approach, a surgeon accesses the hip joint through an incision on the front of the hip. This minimizes the amount of tissue and tendons disrupted during surgery, encouraging faster healing.


Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat patients with bone and joint pain. With this procedure, a surgeon can diagnose and treat the cause of pain through one small incision.

Arthroscopy may be performed to treat joint conditions before they are so severe that they require joint replacement. This minimally invasive method offers many benefits compared to traditional surgery, including:

  • Delaying or eliminating the need for a joint replacement
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Postponing arthritis by treating its cause in the early stages
  • Quicker recovery

Compassionate care before during and after orthopedic treatment

We make sure patients have the information, support and resources they need to make decisions about their treatment and get the best results from their care. If desired, we'll also talk to family members or loved ones about how they can support patients through their recovery.

If joint replacement surgery is needed, we provide care before the patient enters the hospital. Through our Joint Care Program, patients have access to:

  • A pre-surgery class about the procedure, precautions, hospital stay, discharge processes and post-surgical care
  • Convenient and compassionate outpatient rehabilitative care to help patients regain function after surgery
  • Specialized rehabilitation services and education

Noninvasive orthopedic treatments

Some bone and joint pain and patient mobility issues can be relieved without surgery. We offer physical therapy and rehabilitation with certified physical and occupational therapies in addition to advanced pain management services, including injection therapy, to relieve pain and restore quality of life. Our rehabilitation specialists are also here to guide patients through the recovery process following surgery.

Sports medicine

The orthopedic team that makes up our sports medicine program is actively involved in educating athletes, coaches and parents about injury prevention and recognition. When sports- and exercise-related injuries occur, our sports medicine program offers specialized assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
