Orthopedic care

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.

Diagnostic orthopedic services

Diagnostic imaging services are an integral part of caring for your orthopedic condition. We use X-rays, computerized tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to diagnose a variety of orthopedic conditions.

Additionally, we also offer a live X-ray imaging tool (called fluoroscopy) in the operating room to guide your surgeon during surgery.

Bone density screening

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), or bone density screening, measures bone loss. This scan uses enhanced X-rays and small amounts of radiation to measure bone density and mineral content. A DEXA scan can be a helpful screening tool to evaluate your risk for osteoporosis or bone fractures.
