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.

Joint replacement surgery

Our experienced joint surgeons have earned a reputation for innovative care because they continually seek new, better and less invasive ways to repair bones and joints.

Some of our joint surgical specialties include:

  • Arthroscopic reconstruction
  • Direct anterior hip replacement
  • Hip resurfacing
  • Microsurgery of the hand
  • Robot-assisted hip replacement surgery
  • Total or partial joint replacement of the hip, knee and shoulder

Before orthopedic surgery, our patient care teams provide you with preoperative classes to ensure you have the best surgical experience possible. We also offer access to occupational and physical therapists to help you on the road to recovery after your procedure.

Hip care

We try our best to relieve hip pain with nonsurgical methods; however, when hip pain is severe and interferes with daily activities and work, joint replacement may be an option.

Signs that you should be evaluated for a hip replacement include:

  • You have hip pain that persists or prevents you from sleeping
  • You take medication, but it does not provide relief from hip pain
  • You are no longer as mobile as you’d like to be because of the pain in your hip
  • Your hip aches during and after exercise
  • Your hip is stiff or swollen

Knee care

Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. The most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations, sprains and ligament, tendon or meniscus tears. Many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises, while other injuries may require surgery.

If surgery is necessary, our knee doctors are experienced in a variety of procedures, including partial and total knee replacements.


Pediatric orthopedics

Our team of board-certified pediatric orthopedic specialists is known not only for exceptional medical treatment, but also for their thoughtfulness when working with our youngest patients.

Our pediatric orthopedics program focuses on returning kids to their active, normal lives. Typically, children need a pediatric orthopedic specialist for broken bones, growth plates and movement disorders.


Spine surgery

When nonsurgical methods are ineffective, spine surgery may be necessary to correct problems that involve nerves, discs or bones. Our orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons work together to treat these conditions in adults and children. They perform specialized spine surgeries and procedures, including:

  • Artificial cervical disc implantation
  • Digital biplane angiography
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Microdiscectomy
  • Spinal fusion
  • Vertebroplasty

Sports medicine

Sports medicine is focused on the diagnosis and care of sports-related conditions and injuries, from concussions and ruptured Achilles tendons to torn rotator cuffs and dislocated fingers. Our specialists also provide injury prevention education, pain management therapy and rehabilitation services so athletes at all skill levels can return to their sport safely.

  • Bone cancer care
