Bone & Joint Care
Bone & Joint Care Treatments at Holy Family Hospital
The orthopedic team at the Center for Orthopedic Excellence can reduce pain and suffering caused by many different conditions including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
- General joint failure
While conservative treatments such as rehabilitation, weight loss, bracing, pain medication, and injections are considered first to provide relief for pain or loss of functionality, the progression of these symptoms may eventually make day-to-day life difficult. If this occurs, surgical techniques may ultimately be the best option to resolve the problems.
These options include:
- Partial knee resurfacing
- Anterior hip replacements
- Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for partial knee and total hip replacement (available at the Methuen campus)
- Oth er minimally invasive techniques
Every patient having surgery at the Center for Orthopedic Excellence attends Joint Class to learn what will happen before, during, and after surgery. The ability to plan beforehand allows patients to prepare their home and arrange for support when they return home. Being well prepared for surgery improves recovery and outcomes.
Custom rehabilitation services are provided at the hospital during your post-surgical care and through our home care and outpatient rehabilitation center.
