Orthopedic Healthcare


St. Mary's Orthopedic Care -
Improving Your Quality of Life

Not many procedures can improve your quality of life the way orthopedic surgery can.  Orthopedic surgery provides treatment for debilitating musculoskeletal disorders, such as sports or strain-related injuries of the knee, shoulder, hip or hand, or other joints, bone fractures, trauma, joint diseases and injuries, and spinal injuries.

Our physicians are experts in the care of musculoskeletal conditions in adults and children and are committed to caring for the total patient.

Common surgeries performed are:

  • Spinal surgery: procedures utilize minimally invasive techniques to remove discs or to stabilize the spine by fusing the back.
  • Bone fracture repair: procedures to repair fractures of the hip, arm and leg bones
  • Knee and shoulder arthroscopy: a procedure that uses minimally invasive techniques to visualize and repair the knee and shoulder.
  • Joint replacement: procedures that use minimally invasive and traditional techniques to replace hip, knee and shoulder joints.
Recognizing the symptoms of joint pain and getting a proper diagnosis are the correct steps to alleviating your pain.  We have created a series of videos to provide information about joint pain (medical and surgical), knee and hip replacement surgery, and the Joint Replacement Solutions program at St. Mary's.
