Our highly skilled team members include physicians, nurses, physical therapists, surgical services professionals, care coordinators, nurse navigators, advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants), dietitians, pharmacists and hospitalists, all dedicated to getting patients home quickly and safely so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy.

  • Total knee replacement

  • Total shoulder replacement
  • Total ankle replacement
  • Geriatric hip fracture

  • Cervical spine surgery

What makes our program unique?

Our program focuses on wellness and consistent preparation of our patients to succeed. We combine pre-surgery education with highly specialized care approaches and different means of managing pain to ensure patients are comfortable and confident in their care. We promote day-of-surgery rehabilitation to reduce narcotic use, better manage pain and improve function more quickly with fewer complications.

We recognize that spine and joint surgical patients are healthy, yet want more out of life. Our environment and consistent attention to each patient’s well-being and comfort means a personalized experience that exceeds all expectations with compassion and integrity.
