Deaconess Hospital's orthopedics department includes expert staff, state-of-the-art facilities, and advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques.
Whether it's a broken leg, carpal tunnel problems, a torn ligament or spine damage from osteoporosis, our goal at Deaconess Hospital is to get people moving again through an integrated course of treatment that may include surgery, non-surgical procedures, and physical and occupational therapy.
Here's a sampling of Deaconess Hospital’s orthopedic specialties:
In this minimally invasive procedure, our surgeons diagnose and treat joint conditions by inserting small, fiber-optic instruments through a tiny incision.
Articular Knee Cartilage Repair
Surgeons remove a sample of the patient's healthy knee cartilage using arthroscopy. The cells are cultivated in the laboratory and later implanted to replace damaged knee cartilage.
Back & Neck Surgery
Using the latest techniques, our orthopedic back specialist can remove damaged disks, fuse vertebrae to stabilize a weak back, treat scoliosis, and perform other types of corrective, pain-relieving back and neck surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Orthopedic specialists commonly perform bunion removal, bone fusion, and bone spur removal.
Orthopedic surgeons specializing in hand surgery repair bone, muscle, tendon, and nerve damage suffered in injuries and overuse injuries, such as carpal tunnel.
Ligament Repair & Replacement
Our orthopedic specialists do knee and ankle ligament repair and reconstructive surgery.
Our surgeons repair torn and damaged ligaments and tendons, including those in hands, back, shoulders, knees and legs.
Total Joint Replacement
Great advancements have been made in orthopedic research and clinical outcomes. People with chronic knee, hip or shoulder pain have the option of replacing painful joints with artificial joint implants. With the reduction or alleviation of the pain, patients return to their optimal functioning potential.
The program offers pre and post-surgical services designed to create a seamless patient experience.
Pre-surgical educational classes are offered and led by physical therapists and nurses.
- Baseline assessments including walking ability, and strength
- Diagrammed exercise instruction for pre and post surgical exercises
Following joint replacement surgery, patients work with physical or occupational therapists when referred by the physician. Post-surgical intervention includes a reassessment of the current status, review and progression of home exercises, and functional movement activities.
