Orthopedic Services & Treatments

When your bones, joints or muscles need medical care, turn to the orthopedic experts at UHS. You’ll benefit from innovative services and treatments that help you feel and function better.

Conservative Musculoskeletal Care

Whenever possible, your treatment at UHS will begin with conservative, nonsurgical measures, such as:

Orthopedic Surgery

If surgery is your best treatment option, you’ll benefit from some of the area’s most experienced orthopedic surgeons. At UHS, they’re all fellowship-trained, meaning they received extensive education in a surgical specialty.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

Our doctors use advanced technology to perform many surgeries with a minimally invasive technique, such as arthroscopy, that reduces your pain, scarring and recovery time. During arthroscopy, a physician slides a thin, narrow tube with a video camera into your joint. The doctor then treats your joint by inserting tiny medical tools into the tube.

Orthopedic Surgical Procedures

Your doctor at UHS may recommend one of these procedures:

  • Cartilage restoration – Stimulates the growth of new cartilage, or cushioning, in your joints
  • Joint replacement – Exchanges your arthritic, damaged joint for an artificial implant
  • Hand or upper extremity surgery – Specializes in treating your hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder
  • Ligament reconstruction – Stabilizes a joint after a ligament injury
  • Nerve repair – Removes injured tissue or scar tissue from nerve endings and rejoins the ends
  • Reconstructive surgery – Helps part of your body work better and look more like normal

Sports Medicine

If you’re injured during recreational or work-related physical activity, rely on UHS’ sports medicine specialists to get you moving again safely. We’ll teach you how to stay well on the field, in the workplace and at home.
