Our specialists work together with physician assistants, nurses, occupational and physical therapists and other medical professionals to provide comprehensive care from assessment through recovery. We recognize that for many orthopaedic diseases and injuries, there is more than one form of treatment. Care options are discussed with you and your doctor so you can make an informed choice about your care.
Joint pain is the result of a variety of factors, most commonly osteoarthritis, which wears down cartilage. Our orthopaedic 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, including children with rheumatoid arthritis and the special needs of Little People.
Treatment of the Upper Extremities
Our specialists include doctors with additional training in shoulder, hand, wrist and elbow. Hahnemann orthopaedists 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, orthopaedic and plastic surgeons work together to manage complex cases.
Accidents happen — but our experts are trained to recognize the critical need for early intervention of orthopaedic emergencies. Hahnemann University Hospital's
Level 1 Trauma Center stands ready to provide skilled care in treating complex fractures and associated injuries.
The hospital's trauma, emergency, anesthesiology, radiology and orthopaedic 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 orthopaedic team.
