At Methodist Hospital Northeast, our orthopedic team is dedicated to ensuring our community has access to expert orthopedic, spine and neurological care – close to home. Back and neck pain, joint pain, an accident or even a slip and fall – can all affect your quality of life. That’s why our surgeons, specially trained nurses, therapists, a nurse navigator and technicians provide a seamless surgical and recovery experience for our patients.

Each patient has the same dedicated care team throughout his or her journey, which drastically improves the continuity of care. Removing variances aids in the health and safety of our patients, while significantly enhancing the relationship between you and your care team. Our orthopedic and spine team members are settled into our newly opened orthopedic and neuroscience unit – dedicated to our patients recovering from orthopedic, spine or neurological surgery.

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.
