Holy Family Hospital stands committed to quality orthopedic care from start to finish, with a team approach in mind. In developing a seamless treatment plan, our board-certified physicians and orthopedic surgeons work with a staff of specially trained nurses, dieticians, and therapists. 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.
Patients planning surgery at Holy Family are first invited to attend the bone and joint class, an informational forum where they can learn about all stages of their treatment experience, from pre-surgery planning through recovery and discharge home. It is also a chance for patients to meet members of the Holy Family bone and joint team, as well as their appointed case manager, who will be their on site partner during the entire treatment path.
Before you visit our hospital for surgery, please make sure you read our pre-surgery checklist.
Some of the most talented orthopedists around have chosen to call Holy Family ‘home’, and the greater Merrimack Valley experiences the benefits every day.
