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 orthopedic treatments
Our doctors will craft a treatment plan personalized to your unique situation to allow for the best possible outcome. We offer many different kinds of treatments, including:
Typically, your doctors will first recommend minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatments for your orthopedic condition.
These can include:
- Joint injections — an injection of medication directly into the problem area used to reduce pain
- Medication management — typically taken orally and used to reduce pain and inflammation
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation — medically supervised exercise used to strengthen weakened muscles that are related to an orthopedic condition
If nonsurgical treatments prove to be ineffective, our expert surgeons are here to help. They are experienced in performing a wide range of procedures — from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair to joint replacements.
Additionally, we offer options for reconstructive surgery, should you be interested. Our doctors are committed to ensuring you receive the best possible surgical care and are always looking for new, innovative methods to help you heal.
Minimally invasive surgical treatments
When possible, our doctors use minimally invasive surgical methods during your procedure. With minimally invasive surgery, your surgeon is able to perform the procedure through much smaller incisions than traditional surgical methods. This offers many benefits to the patient, including a shorter hospital stay and recovery and less scarring.
One of the most advanced minimally invasive surgical methods is robot-assisted surgery. With robotic surgery, your doctor uses advanced robotic technology to perform the procedure, allowing for an enhanced view of the surgical site and increased precision for the surgeon. This often results in more effective outcomes for the patient, in addition to the other benefits of minimally invasive procedures.
