Meet our Orthopaedic Surgeons


Orthopaedic Nurses

During your stay you will receive excellent care from our certified orthopaedic nurses. Our goal is to meet your individual physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs. It is a privilege to deliver safe and compassionate care to all of our patients.


Physician Assistants (PA)

PAs work side-by-side with your surgeon and nurses. PAs provide most of the on-site postoperative care for our orthopaedic patients. PAs are capable of managing any issues that may arise during your hospital stay. They are available to discuss questions or concerns that you or your family may have regarding your postoperative course. They are also heavily involved with your discharge planning and are frequently discussing your progress with your surgeon and other medical consultants involved in your case. PAs are available for 24 hour coverage. 


Rehabilitation Therapy

A qualified team of rehab therapists will assist you in regaining functional mobility, range of motion and strength. Our therapy team plays a role in discharge planning by assisting with placement options, equipment needs and family planning. The physical and occupational therapists work with patients individually and in group settings to help patients reach their goals.


Case Management

Case managers will work with patients and their families, as well as physicians, physical therapists, nurses and insurance companies to develop a safe discharge plan. The case manager assesses patients' progress and obtains approval for any needed services at the time of discharge.

Case managers are committed to providing patients with a smooth transition to either home or a rehabilitative facility.
