Diagnosing your orthopedic condition

Whether a patient needs care for a broken bone or chronic condition or wants a second opinion, our orthopedic specialists have the expertise and technology to get them back to doing the things they love. The first step in orthopedic treatment is assessing and diagnosing a patient's condition. We offer a range of diagnostic options and imaging services, such as computerized tomography (CT) scans, X-rays and arthroscopy (a minimally invasive surgical procedure using a small camera to examine a joint).

Our orthopedic specialties

Bone and joint conditions occur for various reasons, including injury, disease and general wear and tear. Effective treatments for orthopedic conditions require individualized care from a multidisciplinary team. That's why our orthopedic teams offer the following specialties.

Joint care

From arthritis to fractures, there are many conditions that may cause joint pain, but we can help. Our orthopedic specialists, nurses and physical therapists are dedicated to improving the joint health of our patients.

Joint replacement surgery

Education and rehabilitation are critical components of the joint replacement recovery process. That is why our hospitals offer dedicated joint replacement patient care teams, preoperative education classes and occupational and physical therapy programs. Talk to your doctor to find out whether minimally invasive and robot-assisted options might be right you.

We offer the following joint replacement surgeries, including minimally invasive and robotic-assisted options:

  • Ankle
  • Elbow
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Wrist
