Orthopedic Care in Southern California
If you’re having difficulties with a bone, muscle, tendon, nerve
or joint, the experts at Methodist Hospital are here to help – even
in an emergency situation.
Our orthopedic specialists take an interdisciplinary team approach to care
and offer dynamic surgical techniques and modern technologies when providing
high-quality orthopedic services to our patients.
In addition to offering a broad variety of traditional orthopedic procedures,
our skilled surgeons provide minimally-invasive techniques for the major
joints in the body as well as for injuries to the bones, tendons, ligaments,
and muscles. A minimally invasive procedure involves a small incision
to repair the injury or damage and can lessen the pain experienced by
a patient as well as shorter patient recovery times. Patients going through
this type of procedure to the hip or knee are often able to walk the same
day of their surgery.
Whether you are having a traditional or minimally invasive surgery, by
beginning the rehabilitation process as soon as possible we find our patients
recover more quickly and can get back to the life activities they enjoy
Care for both inpatient and outpatient orthopedic procedures begins before
the patient is admitted to the hospital. Pre-surgical education, care
coordination, and rehabilitation planning are provided by our caring and
knowledgeable staff. Our compassionate nurses, physical and occupational
therapists, and dietary staff will support and educate you as you move
through your recovery.
