Orthopedic surgery we perform

Our orthopedic surgeons address medical issues that affect joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bones. Patients that benefit from orthopedic surgery typically have had little to no relief of symptoms with traditional noninvasive orthopedic care, such as medication and physical therapy. Surgeries we perform include:

  • Knee replacement
  • Hip replacement
  • Shoulder replacement
  • Elbow replacement
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Meniscal tears
  • Shoulder dislocation or subluxation (partial dislocation)
  • Kneecap dislocation or patellar instability (partial dislocation)
  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Hand and wrist surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Spinal fusions (joining one or more vertebrae of the spine to reduce pain and create stability)
  • Laminectomy (full or partial removal of the rear bones of the spine, lamina, to relieve compression on the spinal cord)

Visiting our orthopedic specialists

Methodist Hospital Ambulatory Surgery is located in suite 100 inside Huebner Medical Center plaza. Patients and visitors can park anywhere in our lot for free. The admissions desk through the main entrance will check you in and direct you to your procedure or the waiting room. Appointments for procedures are scheduled by our specialists with your referring physician.

Preoperative care is discussed before the procedure with your referring doctor and postoperative care instructions are provided by your attending nurses and specialists at Methodist Hospital Ambulatory Surgery.

Visitor information

We welcome visitors to visit their loved ones as often as they like with our open visitation hours. However, to ensure patients can recuperate and rest, attending nurses may limit certain hours of visitation for complex procedures. Chairs that pull out into a bed or recliner, are available in some patient rooms.

If you are planning to arrive or exit before 5 a.m. or after 6 p.m. we request you use the ER entrance. Visitors entering through the ER will see a phone with instructions to call the patient's attending nurses. Staff will meet the visitors and guide them to the patient's recovery room.

Orthopedic care at Methodist Healthcare

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of your bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.
