Orthopedics

The orthopedic care team treats injuries including arthritis pain, back pain, joint pain and pain from strains and sprains that may otherwise diminish your quality of life. Whether you suffer from spinal injuries, arthritis or any other orthopedic ailment, our expert surgeons and specialists can treat your musculoskeletal needs.

Each year, we help thousands of people overcome chronic joint pain and injury. In addition to research and state-of-the-art surgeries, many of our locations also provide inpatient and outpatient services including rehabilitation and physical therapy.

If your condition requires surgery, having your joint or spine surgery performed by an orthopedic surgeon at Providence provides access to a highly skilled and coordinated orthopedic healing team, as well as access to other hospital services, if needed.

Our orthopedic and sports medicine surgeons perform advanced and minimally invasive surgeries to fix injuries to joints, bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles. When they are appropriate to use, minimally invasive techniques repair damage through a small incision, which means less pain and a shorter recovery. Many of our patients are able to walk the day after surgery and start the rehabilitation process sooner to get back to their normal life activities.

Some minimally invasive surgeries include:

  • Arthroplasty for joint arthritis
  • Arthroscopy for most joints
  • Carpal tunnel release (endoscopic technique)
  • Foot and Ankle surgery
  • Fractures caused by osteoporosis
  • Hand and elbow surgery
  • Hip replacement
  • Knee replacement (unicompartmental)
  • Minimally invasive fixations, decompression
  • Release of joint contractures
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty for spinal compression
