University Health System orthopedic specialists see thousands of patients every year.
We treat adults and children with a wide range of orthopedic conditions, caused by:
- Sports-related injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries
Our focus is on caring for you and determining the best course of treatment based on your needs. If we can avoid surgery, we will. But if surgery is needed, our orthopedic surgeons work closely with primary care physicians, rehabilitation experts and other specialists to provide you with the best care available.
Our team takes advantage of the latest technology and advanced procedures to diagnosis your condition correctly and as quickly as possible. Tests and diagnostic procedures we use include:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan
- Bone scan
- Bone density scan
Once you’re diagnosed, real-time test results are quickly shared with the appropriate specialists through our integrated electronic medical record system in the area.
We offer comprehensive treatment options, beginning with nonsurgical options whenever possible. Anti-inflammatory pain medications, interventional pain management, such as spinal injections, and occupational/physical therapy are often combined to provide the pain relief you need.
When surgery is necessary, University Health System is the leading choice for referring physicians and patients alike. Our orthopedic surgeons use advanced techniques to reconstruct bones, tendons, or joints and restore function, including:
- Minimally invasive spine surgery
- Foot and ankle surgery
- Total and partial hip replacements
- Total and partial knee replacements
- Total and partial shoulder replacements
