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.

Constant hip, knee or shoulder pain can interfere with even simple everyday tasks. We can help. 

Joint replacement surgery

Our orthopedic doctors use advanced diagnostics to determine the root cause of your pain and then develop a personalized treatment and pain management plan.

In some instances, a joint replacement procedure may be the best option to relieve chronic joint pain. When this type of surgery is necessary, you can trust our experienced orthopedic surgeons to perform the joint replacement and use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.

We recommend talking to your doctor about hip, knee or shoulder replacement options if you are experiencing:

  • Hips, knees or shoulders grinding/hurting when you move
  • Pain when walking or standing

Hip replacement surgery

The anterior approach to hip replacement allows your surgeon to access your hip joint through the front of the hip. This approach offers less damage to surrounding tissue and may also provide a smaller surgical incision.

During this procedure, muscles surrounding the hip joint are separated at intervals which naturally occur within the tissue. Muscles are not cut, nor are they detached from the femur or pelvis during the surgery. This results in a shorter recovery time without experiencing surgical trauma to the muscles.

Knee replacement surgery

Differences in bone shape affect the way a knee replacement fits. Studies show that misalignment causes increased wear of the implant and can lead to premature failure. This is why we offer a customized knee replacement surgery.

Our customized knee replacement surgery uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology and preoperative planning tools to create individualized surgical guides that matches your anatomy.

Orthopedic rehabilitation

Many orthopedic and spine surgeries require physical therapy and rehabilitation, and we offer a variety of services to meet your individual needs. For your convenience, we provide all of the rehabilitative services you need in the orthopedic unit.
