Certified Surgeons & Accredited Orthopedic Department at Holy Family Hospital
Holy Family Hospital's Center for Orthopedic Excellence performs nearly 2,000 adult and pediatric procedures each year.
With a team of more than two-dozen skilled orthopedic surgeons and physicians assistants, Holy Family specializes in innovative, minimally invasive techniques and treatment options. Whether you are a competitive athlete or weekend warrior, you don’t want injuries and pain to keep you on the sidelines.
Our board-certified and fellowship trained orthopedic surgeons and spine surgeons use cutting-edge medicine, advanced surgical techniques, and state-of-the-art pain management to help patients regain mobility as quickly and painlessly as possible. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, and rehabilitation specialists assist with advanced diagnostics and treatment options, whether the condition is acute or chronic.
Sports Medicine/Bone and Joint Care
Our specialists are trained to treat everything from acute conditions such as fractures, ankle sprains, muscle strains, bone infections, and knee, hip and shoulder injuries, as well as injuries caused by overuse, such as tendonitis and stress fractures. They also specialize in chronic conditions such as arthritis, osteonecrosis or general joint failure. Medical treatments, such as rehabilitation, bracing, and injections are often considered first, but the progression of symptoms may eventually make day-to-day life so difficult that surgical techniques become the best option.
There are many surgical treatments available. Your surgeon will explain your options and together you will decide which one is best for your condition and overall health. Our highly qualified surgeons are skilled at:
- Total joint replacement for the knee, hip and shoulder
- Advanced anterior hip replacements
- Partial knee resurfacing
- Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery
- Other minimally invasive techniques
Custom rehabilitation services are provided at the hospital during post-surgical care and through our home care and outpatient rehabilitation center.
Holy Family Hospital is home to the most experienced Mako™ team in the region. Holy Family Hospital was the first hospital in the Merrimack Valley to provide Mako™ Partial Knee and Mako™ total hip replacement procedures for patients suffering from early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee and hip.
