Joint pain is the result of a variety of factors, most commonly osteoarthritis, which wears down cartilage. Our orthopedic surgeons have specialized fields of interest, including hip, knee, shoulder and elbow replacements, and work side-by-side with rheumatologists to deliver optimal results.By performing total or partial muscle sparing joint replacement surgeries, our goal is to relieve disabling joint pain and — along with therapy and rehabilitation — help restore daily function. We also specialize in early recognition of implant failures and revisions to previous joint replacements. Using advanced joint implant materials, our doctors excel in the most complicated joint replacement cases.
Accidents happen — but our experts are trained to recognize the critical need for early intervention of orthopedic emergencies. Hahnemann University Hospital's
Charles C. Wolferth Trauma Center stands ready to provide skilled care in treating complex fractures and associated injuries.
The hospital's trauma, emergency, anesthesiology, radiology and orthopedic staffs work together to stabilize injuries and establish a recovery plan. Fracture complications, such as non-unions and mal-unions requiring revision surgery, are also skillfully handled by our orthopedic team.
Our specialists include physicians with additional training in shoulder, hand, wrist and elbow. Hahnemann orthopedists offer individualized treatment programs ranging from conservative rehabilitation and bracing for fractures, dislocations and tendon injuries to complex procedures, such as shoulder instability surgery and replantations/reattachments of amputations. In many instances, orthopedic and plastic surgeons work together to manage complex cases.
