Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and allows you to move, work and be active.
Orthopedic surgeons manage disruptions or problems of the musculoskeletal system.
Our orthopedic physicians strive to provide the highest-quality and cost-effective care for patients in the mid-Monongahela Valley and beyond and maintain an excellent reputation in the orthopedic community and in quality of case ratings, particularly with respect to low infection rates.
While orthopedic surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system, many orthopedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, spine, hip or knee. They may also choose to focus on specific fields like joint reconstruction or sports medicine. Some orthopedic surgeons may specialize in several areas and many participate in clinical trials. Our orthopedic physician staff also serve as sports medicine physicians to many college and high school athletic programs.
Monongahela Valley Hospital provides a complete continuum of orthopedic care, including treatment of injuries and fractures, general orthopedic surgery, knee arthroscopy, hip and knee joint replacements, foot & ankle, specialized shoulder and elbow surgery. We also provide a dedicated hospital unit for recovery and complete inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services to help maximize function following injury or surgery. This includes specially trained physicians called physiatrists who assist a patient with rehabilitative care.
