Orthopedic Surgery

Advanced Technology for Effective Surgical Treatment

Injuries and diseases that affect your muscoskeletal system can severely inhibit your ability to move, perform daily tasks, and maintain a high quality of life. Your bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves are all interconnected, helping you get around and move in a variety of ways. When there is an issue with any of these muscoskeletal components, treatment is necessary to prevent further damage and restore physical motion.

If non-surgical treatment methods cannot effectively manage symptoms and improve your physical condition, orthopedic surgery might be the best option. Orthopedic surgery ranges from simple, non-invasive procedures to total joint replacements.

Orthopedic surgery can treat:

  • Back pain
  • Ruptured discs
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Club foot
  • Bow legs
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sports- and work-related injuries
  • Tendon injuries
  • Pulled muscles
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains and strains

The orthopedic surgeons at West Jefferson Medical Center treat patients of all ages – newborns, children, adults, and the elderly – with these conditions among others.

The list of orthopedic surgeries we offer is exhaustive; our team is capable of handling procedures of any complexity.

Some of the most common procedures we perform are:

  • Arthroscopy: Treats problems within the joint with an arthroscope
  • Joint replacement: Completely removes a damaged or diseased joint, replacing it with a prosthesis
  • Bone fracture repair: Repositions broken pieces of bone
  • Spine fusion: Joins spinal bones together
  • Osteotomy: Corrects bone deformities
