Take the first step toward living and moving with less pain

When simple tasks are hard to do with muscle soreness or joint pain, our orthopedic and sports medicine doctors and care teams are ready to help. We listen to understand you about how your pain or injury is limiting your movement. Throughout the Ascension network, we offer many orthopedic sites of care with convenient online scheduling and testing close to home. Then, we work with you to create a care plan that’s right for you. We help you get back to the activities you love.

Orthopedic care for children and adults

We focus on treating your condition and helping you prevent reinjury so you can stay active. Falls are the leading cause of injury in older adults. Overuse, direct impact or doing an exercise the wrong way for your body can cause activity-related or sports injuries at any age.

At some locations, we offer urgent walk-in injury care for minor orthopedic sports injuries. We also offer multi-specialty orthopedic and sports medicine sites of care, where our doctors diagnose and treat conditions that affect how you move and that cause pain in your back, hips, arms, and legs. We offer treatments, including:

  • Medication therapy
  • Minimally invasive, outpatient surgery
  • Non-surgical injections and orthobiologics to help injuries heal quickly
  • Orthopedic surgery, including total and partial joint replacement
  • Rehabilitation and recovery care
  • Exercise physiology and sports performance

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.

Care for joint and spine pain

Arthritis in the joints and spine conditions, like scoliosis, a significant curve in the spine, can lead to chronic pain. Our orthopedic and sports medicine doctors provide non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Many of our doctors also specialize in care for a specific part of the body: hip, knee, shoulder, spine and hands. Our orthopedic surgeons are part of a national network of specialists, sharing best practices, from joint replacement and reconstruction surgery to sports medicine and rehabilitation. When surgery is recommended, our orthopedic surgeons are experienced in minimally invasive surgery to help shorten your recovery. Our range of orthopedic surgery care includes:

  • Ankle and foot reconstruction
  • Hand surgery
  • Hip and knee replacement surgery
  • Knee surgery for torn ligaments
  • Pediatric bone tumors and deformities

Age, arthritis and injury are all possible reasons for hip, knee or shoulder pain. If you are living with pain, our experienced orthopedic surgery specialists and care teams take the time to understand you and your joint pain. At many Ascension orthopedic sites of care, we offer certified joint replacement surgery with rehabilitation and recovery programs.

Getting the right care at the right time is critical for your health. If you’re looking for a second opinion, we can help match you with the right orthopedic specialist. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your second opinion appointment.
