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.

Orthopedic diagnostics

The first step in effectively treating your orthopedic condition is getting an accurate diagnosis. Our orthopedic doctors work with our imaging team to determine what is causing your symptoms.

Orthopedic treatments

We offer a full spectrum of orthopedic treatments, including minimally invasive procedures, which offer shorter recovery times.

  • Arthroscopic joint repair
  • Closed or open reduction of fractures
  • Joint replacement surgery for the ankle, hip, knee and shoulder
  • Release of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pediatric arm and wrist fracture repair
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Custom knee replacement

We offer knee replacements customized for your knee. Our orthopedic surgeons use advanced technology which converts a CT scan of your knee to a 3D model. That model is used to design a knee implant for your unique anatomy. These implants follow the shape and contour of your knee to maintain your natural joint lines and increase stability.

Orthopedic rehabilitation

Through orthopedic rehabilitation, we help you regain strength and restore mobility after an orthopedic surgery or injury. Our hospital provides inpatient and outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation services from therapists highly trained to rehabilitate patients with orthopedic conditions. They work with you to develop a rehabilitative care plan, which is tailored to your unique needs, to help you heal as quickly and safely as possible.
