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.

Our orthopedic procedures

If you need surgical treatment for a condition affecting your spine or joints, our experienced, board-certified surgeons offer a range of advanced orthopedic surgeries to meet your needs.

Spine surgery

Our skilled spine surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robot-assisted surgery, to perform delicate spinal procedures. We offer a range of surgeries to treat spine conditions, including:

  • Cervical and lumbar fusion
  • Cervical discectomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Laminectomy
  • Microdiscectomy
Total hip replacement

Our experienced orthopedic surgeons offer total hip replacement surgery as an effective treatment to reduce hip pain. During this procedure, your surgeon removes the damaged or diseased ball of the upper thigh bone (femur) and the damaged cartilage from the hip socket. The damaged ball and socket are replaced with an artificial ball-and-socket joint.

Hip resurfacing

We offer hip resurfacing as an alternative to total hip replacement. During this procedure, your surgeon removes only small amounts of damaged or diseased cartilage and bone, which usually allows a faster recovery time than total hip replacement.

Total knee replacement

If you have a severely degenerative knee condition, total knee replacement may be an effective treatment option for you. During this procedure, your surgeon removes your diseased or damaged knee joint and replaces it with a new, artificial joint.

Our hospital has been certified by The Joint Commission for knee replacement. This recognition exemplifies our dedication to offering leading-edge joint replacement procedures.

Partial knee replacement

If you have an early to mid-stage degenerative joint disease affecting your knee, partial knee replacement surgery may be recommended. This procedure involves replacing a portion of the knee with an artificial joint.

Total shoulder replacement

We offer total shoulder replacement surgery to help patients with debilitating shoulder pain. This surgical treatment helps relieve your pain and increase your shoulder's functionality. The procedure involves replacing the ball of the arm bone and shoulder blade socket with artificial components.

Total Joint Replacement Class

If you are scheduled to have hip or knee replacement surgery, we encourage you to attend our Total Joint Replacement Class. Preoperative education can lessen your anxiety about the procedure. Also, informed patients who are active participants in their care may experience better surgical outcomes than patients who are not as involved.

Topics covered in our Total Joint Replacement Class include:

  • How to prevent complications
  • Pain management
  • Patient responsibilities
  • Preparing for surgery
  • Recovery and rehabilitation
