Expert care to get you moving again.

Orthopedics

The physicians at the DHR Health Orthopedic Institute offer the best in orthopedic care with a wide range of services, including general orthopedic medicine, total joint replacement, sports medicine, reconstructive surgery, fracture care, and arthroscopy. From chronic conditions and simple sprains to traumatic injury and complex surgery, the DHR Health Orthopedic Institute provides care for the complete musculoskeletal system. Our multispecialty diagnostic, surgical, and rehabilitation programs help you return to the highest level of performance and enjoy a healthy, active life.

Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that offers orthopedic surgeons the ability to access, navigate and operate on a given joint through small incisions. Conditions treated include activity related joint pain, tendon and cartilage injury in the hip, knee and shoulder, chondromalacia and synovitis.

Dislocated Joints

When one of your joints is forced from its normal position, immediate medical care is necessary. Due to the pain and swelling, patients may not be able to distinguish between a dislocated joint or a broken bone, which requires them to be fully evaluated by a medical professional. The majority of dislocations are the result of a fall, impact or an auto-accident. When your joint becomes dislocated, patients will experience sudden pain and will not be able to move the affected extremity, such as their arm or leg.

Foot and Ankle Repair

Our multidisciplinary, highly trained team of orthopedic surgeons provides comprehensive medical and surgical care of foot and ankle disorders. Conditions treated include arthritis, diabetic foot problems, heel spurs, fractures of the foot, ankle and lower leg, sports injuries and tendon disorders.

Fracture Care

DHR Health Orthopedic Institute surgeons specialize in the evaluation and treatment of many types of bone fractures, including fractures of the arms, legs, shoulders, clavicles, knees, and hips. Fracture care and management of pain involve pharmaceutical treatment plans along with the placement of braces and splints, casting of the extremities, and surgical interventions. Radiological studies performed by certified and experienced technicians help guide our surgeons’ assessments and patient education.

Hand and Upper Extremities

We are dedicated to restoring the function of hands damaged by injury or disease through surgical and non-surgical treatments. Conditions treated include soft tissue sprains, strains and contusions, traumatic injuries, degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist and hand fractures.

High-Impact Injuries

Auto-accidents, falls and sports related injuries usually occur with high-impact which can fracture, displace and shatter bones. Any injuries that are sustained during a high-impact activity should promptly be evaluated by an orthpedic trauma team.

Hip Fractures

A fractured hip is extremely painful, immobilizes the patient and if not treated timely or effectively, can result in the deterioration of surrounding pelvic bones. The DHR Health Orthopedic Trauma Institute offers advanced minimally-invasive treatments to provide patients with hip fractures a quicker recovery process with better outcomes.

Joint Replacement

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint. We offer a joint replacement education class for patients prior to surgery.

Orthopedic Trauma

At DHR Health Orthopedic Trauma Institute we treat a wide range of high-impact injuries. Auto-accidents, falls and sports related injuries usually occur with high-impact which can fracture, displace and shatter bones. Any injuries that are sustained during a high-impact activity should promptly be evaluated by an orthopedic team.

Osteomyelitis

Patients can develop a bone infection that is commonly caused after bone surgery, through a staph infection or other infections located in other areas of the body. Patients with diabetes and peripheral vascular disease tend to be at a higher risk due to an increased risk of infection with these conditions. If osteomyelitis is not treated quickly, an abscess can develop in the bone or a blood infection can occur.

Sports Medicine

Sports medicine focuses on the health and physical well-being of those involved in recreational activities. Sports injuries often include broken bones, sprains, ligament or tendon tears, cartilage injuries, joint instability and muscle weakness. With a team of expert physicians, DHR Health Orthopedic Institute offers Board Certified Care in Sports Medicine. Our physicians focus on getting adults and adolescents back to being able to participate in activities as quickly and as safely and possible. Sports-related conditions treated include stress related injuries, acute injury to the knee, ankle or upper extremities and shoulder instabilities.

Workman’s Compensation

If you are injured on the job, think of the qualified surgeons of the DHR Health Orthopedic Institute to treat your worker's compensation case. We recognize that there are physical and work environment concerns that must be taken into consideration when treating a patient hurt on the job. We are committed to providing prompt evaluation and treatment of work-related injuries; we will work with your employer and insurance adjuster to coordinate the care you need.
