Orthopedic care

Orthopedists are doctors who take care of the entire musculoskeletal system. They diagnose and treat conditions such sprains, strains, broken bones, arthritis and osteoporosis. Some of the treatments they offer include recommending lifestyle changes, applying casts and performing surgeries, such as ligament repairs or total joint replacements.

Our orthopedic care programs

Our specialists use evidence-based, up-to-date techniques to provide comprehensive care for orthopedic injuries and conditions.

Hand and upper extremity care

Dealing with hand, wrist, arm, or shoulder issues can deeply impact your daily life. We understand the importance of restoring your comfort and functionality. We offer many treatment options for this, including microvascular surgery. This procedure enables surgeons to repair and reconnect blood vessels to improve blood flow and promote healing.

Hip care

Our specialists regularly perform hip arthroscopies, which are minimally invasive surgical procedures that allow the surgeon to diagnose the exact cause of your hip pain. From there, we curate a course of treatment and rehabilitation for your condition.

Knee care

Knee specialists at our hospital can provide a number of treatments, ranging from noninvasive services, such as arthroscopy and injections, to knee replacement surgery. Knee pain may also be improved through a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises as well as weight loss.

Joint replacements

If nonsurgical treatments are ineffective, joint replacement surgery may be the solution. We use advanced and noninvasive techniques to ensure your healing process is as swift as possible.

The primary joint replacement surgeries we offer include:

  • Hip replacement — We provide both total and anterior hip replacement surgeries, which consist of replacing the hip and socket joints with prosthetics. These implants restore your range of motion and lessen pain.
  • Knee replacement — We offer both total and partial knee replacements. Total knee replacement surgery consists of the knee joint being replaced with a prosthetic joint, whereas only some of the joint is replaced or repaired in a partial knee replacement.
  • Shoulder replacement — Both total shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement are offered at our hospital. Reverse shoulder replacement is often used when you have experienced previous shoulder surgery or severe rotator cuff injury. The procedure consists of the surgeon stabilizing your shoulder with the deltoid muscle rather than with the rotator cuff muscles and tendons.

Sports medicine

Our sports medicine physicians specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sports-related conditions. Both athletes and non-athletes (anyone who wants to stay active) receive seamless, comprehensive care for musculoskeletal injuries. We will be there for you from diagnosis through rehabilitation, ensuring your body's function, strength and overall wellness are restored.
