Expertise from head to toe.
The human musculoskeletal system serves as the framework for our bodies. It supports us, allows us to move, and protects our vital organs. So when something goes wrong, it's important to get it taken care of by an orthopedics department with an exceptional track record.

Whether you're a weekend warrior, youth sports enthusiast, or an elite professional athlete, the orthopedic department offers world-class sports medicine capabilities. We welcome patients of all ages and activity levels. Our focus includes surgical and non-surgical treatments, as well as prevention techniques. We work on both an individual and team basis (our physicians have consulted for the Detroit Tigers, San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, Connecticut Tigers, the PGA Tour, the X-Games, U.S. Olympic Trials and intercollegiate athletic teams).
We go far beyond the X-Ray to treat their patients. MRIs, bone density studies, sports medicine imaging, advanced imaging-related injections – these are just some of the specialized diagnostic tools the hospital uses to address musculoskeletal health issues. In many cases, even the subtlest of joint injuries can be detected before they become a major problem – leading to a choice of therapeutic treatment over surgery, faster recovery times and the patient's quick return to a normal lifestyle.
