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.

We are proud to be certified in total hip and knee replacement by The Joint Commission. This recognition reflects our commitment to providing comprehensive support and high-quality care for patients undergoing joint replacement.

Some of the orthopedic treatments we offer include:

  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome repair
  • Cervical fusion
  • Discectomy
  • Fracture repair
  • Joint repair

    • Total hip replacement
    • Total knee replacement
  • Laminectomy

Hip replacement surgery: anterior approach

We offer a minimally invasive alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery. The anterior approach to hip replacement allows your surgeon to replace the hip joint without detaching any muscles or tendons from the bone.

Compared to traditional surgery, this minimally invasive procedure offers benefits such as:

  • Faster recovery and rehabilitation
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less risk of dislocation
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller incision

Preoperative joint replacement surgery class

If you are undergoing joint replacement surgery, we offer a weekly preoperative class. This class allows you to learn more about your upcoming hip or knee replacement procedure. It will also give you the opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about your surgery with our licensed clinicians.

To register for our next joint replacement class, call our Consult-A-Nurse® team at (888) 685-1595.
