Holy Family Hospital stands committed to quality orthopedic care. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons work with a team of specially trained nurses, dieticians, and therapists to develop a seamless treatment plan. Cutting edge medicine, minimally invasive techniques, and advanced pain management are used to help patients suffering from impaired joint function to regain mobility as quickly and painlessly as possible.
While conservative treatments such as rehabilitation, weight loss,
bracing, pain medication and injections are considered first to provide
relief for pain or loss of functionality, the progression of these
symptoms may eventually make day-to-day life difficult. If this
occurs, surgical techniques may ultimately be the best option to resolve
There are many surgical treatments available. Your surgeon will explain which options are best for your condition and overall health and will partner with you as you decide which option is right for you.
