Multidisciplinary orthopedic care
To ensure we can provide you with the type of care that is right for you, we have assembled a multidisciplinary orthopedic care team. This team includes physicians who specialize in orthopedics, neurosurgery and spine surgery. These specialists collaborate with physical therapists and other providers to deliver high-quality surgical and nonsurgical treatments.
Advanced diagnostic tools
Using advanced diagnostic imaging, our specialists can better understand your condition and guide your treatment plan.
Some of the imaging tests we use in orthopedics include:
- 64-slice computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Orthopedic conditions we treat
Our orthopedic doctors are uniquely qualified to treat a variety of conditions, such as:
- Fractures, dislocations, torn ligaments and other injuries
- Joint pain and degenerative diseases (including arthritis)
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Ruptured or bulging discs
- Spinal stenosis
Hand and upper extremity care
Our hand and upper extremity care program ensures you have access to experienced specialists and advanced treatments. If surgery is necessary to treat your condition, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, which typically enables you to have a faster recovery. Some procedures our orthopedic surgeons commonly perform include hand surgeries and rotator cuff repairs.
If you live with debilitating or chronic joint pain, our bone and joint doctors specialize in joint care and are here to help. We will work with you to diagnose and treat the cause of your pain, so you can move more freely and enjoy an energetic lifestyle again.
Joint replacement surgery
If there is severe damage to your joint, a joint replacement may be necessary. During this procedure, your orthopedic surgeon will replace your whole joint—or only part of your joint—with a prosthetic implant. The artificial joint is like-new, allowing your joint to move smoothly and without pain.
We offer the following types of joint replacements:
- Total and partial elbow replacement
- Total and partial hip replacements
- Total and partial knee replacements
- Total shoulder replacements
Robotic joint replacement for hips and knees
We are pleased to provide advanced hip and knee replacement procedures through the use of robotic surgery. With this state-of-the-art surgical technology, our hip and knee surgeons perform joint replacements with extreme precision and intraoperative guidance.
This type of robotic assistance allows the surgeon to exactly position and align the implant(s) to your anatomy, creating a more natural-feeling joint.
Back and neck pain may be caused by an injury, disease or disorder, and these ailments require highly specialized spine care. To ensure you receive this level of expert care, our spine team includes specialists from orthopedics and neurosurgery. These doctors work together to accurately diagnose your back or spine condition and recommend an effective care plan.
Additionally, depending on your unique condition, we will typically exhaust nonsurgical and noninvasive methods of treatment before suggesting spine surgery.
Spine and Joint Academy
The Spine and Joint Academy is a free educational service of Mountain View Hospital. Through our Spine and Joint Academy classes, we help you learn what to expect during the preoperative, surgical and postoperative phases of your upcoming spine surgery or joint replacement.
Our academy team is here for you, even if you are not yet sure that you want or need surgery. We can answer your questions about a potential procedure and help you understand the options available to you.
Classes are made up of small interactive groups, and we encourage you to bring a family member or significant other. You will never be charged for these classes, even if you do not have surgery.
To learn more about the Spine and Joint Academy or to enroll in an upcoming class, please call (801) 465-7168.
Benefits of our Spine and Joint Academy
We understand you are the most important participant in your care and that educational support is a key factor in positive surgical outcomes. That is why our entire team is devoted to providing you with the information you need for a successful surgery and recovery.
We will cover topics specific to your joint replacement or spine surgery, including:
- Education about pre- and post-surgical care
- Infection prevention
- Nutrition for healing
- Pain management
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Postoperative precautions
If you have already discussed your joint replacement or spine surgery with your orthopedic surgeon, we still recommend you enroll in an academy class. To enroll in a Spine and Joint Academy class, please call (801) 465-7168.
