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 doctors will typically first recommend noninvasive methods of treatment — such as medication management or physical therapy — for your orthopedic condition. However, when conservative methods just don't seem to be doing the trick, our doctors may recommend orthopedic surgery.
Advanced robotic orthopedic surgery
As part of our commitment to your healing, our doctors and surgeons are always learning and growing to incorporate innovative techniques to better help our patients.
One of the ways we do this is through advanced robotic orthopedic surgery. Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the surgeon operates through small incisions — versus larger incisions used in traditional surgical methods.
During the procedure, your doctor, just feet away from the operating table, controls robotic arms fitted with surgical instruments. These systems provide your surgeons with an enhanced view of the surgical site and increased precision during the operation.
What this means for you is that, with robot-assisted surgery, you can expect effective results with less scarring and a shorter recovery time. That means you can get back to living the life you love, faster than ever.
