Orthopedic Surgery

When something goes wrong with your musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments), it can affect your entire well-being.

For most orthopedic diseases and injuries, there is more than one form of treatment. For patients who don’t respond to conservative treatments, like medication and physical therapy, Mercyhealth orthopedic surgeons offer many types of surgery, including:

  • Arthroscopy—A minimally invasive procedure used to see, diagnose and treat problems inside a joint.
  • Fusion—A process where broken bones are fused together with bone grafts and internal devices (such as metal rods) to heal into a single solid bone.
  • Internal fixation to repair a bone fracture—Using metal plates, pins or screws to hold the broken pieces of bone in proper position while the bone heals.
  • Joint replacement (partial, total and revision)—Using a prosthesis to repair an arthritic or damaged joint.
  • Osteotomy—Correcting a bone deformity by cutting and repositioning the bone.
  • Soft tissue repair—Procedures that mend torn tendons or ligaments.

Our orthopedics staff offers exceptional diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. Our goal is to provide a positive experience and create the best plan to address your condition and get you back on track.
