Genuine Care is a Team Effort
Strong healthy weight bearing joints are what keep you moving, at work, at play, and even when you sleep. So anything that affects your bones affects how easily you can move. From accurate diagnosis, to development of a personalized treatment plan and thorough post-operative follow-up, we work hard to ensure you have the best possible outcome.
The Total Joint Experience at Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital offers patients the comfort of a continuum of care throughout the patient’s medical treatment. A focused team approach includes surgeons and a designated post-surgical total joint care team.
We use the latest orthopedic techniques to restore the maximum function possible in light of trauma or degenerative disease. Whether you are coping with a sports injury or the pain of arthritis, we are committed to providing you with the best orthopedic care in a supportive and caring environment.
Our team of certified and trained professionals provides comprehensive, exceptional orthopedic care to every patient, without exception.
