What Is Orthopedics?
Orthopedics is the branch of medicine concerned with diseases, injuries, and conditions of the musculoskeletal system: the body’s bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Thanks to the advances in orthopedic medicine, many are enjoying longer and more active lives.
Your journey back to mobility is not an individual effort. With the help of our Joint Care Team, you and your family will be guided through the transitions between pre-operative education, surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation, all the way through your return home.
