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.

Specialized orthopedic care

Our orthopedic team is made up of physicians who specialize in procedures that range from hip and knee replacements to rotator cuff repair. Let our team help get you back to living the life you enjoy.

Orthopedic surgery services

Our orthopedic surgeons are board certified and trained in a variety of procedures, including:

  • ACL repair
  • Arthritis management
  • Bone fracture repair
  • Bone grafts
  • Carpal tunnel release
  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Hand/upper extremity surgery
  • Joint replacements
  • Muscle, joint and tendon transfer
  • Outpatient total joint replacement
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Spine surgery
  • Trauma surgery

Hip replacement

We offer anterior and posterior hip replacement procedures. Both types of hip replacement involve replacing damaged bone with an artificial joint.

We offer advanced technology for our anterior total hip replacement procedures, including a platform designed for the precise placement of your body. This helps surgeons preserve muscle around the hip joint, minimize scar tissue and reduce your total recovery time.

Knee replacement

Our orthopedic surgeons are highly skilled in innovative knee replacement procedures that maximize function and minimize the recovery period. Based on your unique condition, your orthopedic doctor may recommend:

  • Total knee replacement
  • Partial knee replacement or resurfacing
  • Revision surgery

Muscle-sparing surgery

Your orthopedic team may recommend muscle-sparing hip replacement surgery, a technique where no muscles are cut. This approach drastically reduces pain and recovery time compared to traditional surgery.

Shoulder replacement

We offer traditional shoulder replacement surgery and reverse replacement surgery. Traditional shoulder replacement involves replacing the damaged parts of the shoulder with artificial components.

However, if you have a rotator cuff injury, traditional shoulder replacement is not always an option. This is because with a torn rotator cuff, the socket of the implant is prone to loosening.

A reverse shoulder replacement is particularly effective if you have arthritis or a rotator cuff injury. During this procedure, the ball and socket parts of the artificial shoulder joint are reversed — the ball is placed on the socket side of the joint.

Sports medicine

Our orthopedic team also provides sports medicine for injuries related to athletics and active lifestyles. We treat conditions such as:

  • ACL injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Torn muscles or tendons

Bone density testing

A bone density test, or dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan, is an exam your doctor may recommend as part of your orthopedic care. DEXA scans use two low-dose X-rays absorbed differently by bones and soft tissues. Our team will use the density profiles from these X-rays to calculate bone mineral density and will allow us to screen for osteoporosis (a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced).

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Physical therapy is a vital part of the recovery process. Our therapists can work with you to create a custom rehabilitation plan designed to maximize your range of motion and strength following surgery.

Joint education at our hospital

If you are undergoing joint replacement surgery, we offer joint surgery education to help you feel comfortable before and after your surgery.
