Orthopedic Care | Sports Medicine Specialists

Bothwell Regional Health Center Orthopedics & Sports Medicine provides patients with comprehensive orthopedic care. From diagnosis to treatment, Bothwell’s team of orthopedic surgeons work together to help patients get well and stay well. Our orthopedic specialists concentrate on treating conditions involving the hips, knees, arms and elbows, foot and ankle, hand and wrist, shoulder and lower back. Bothwell Orthopedics & Sports Medicine also specializes in joint replacement, trauma and sports medicine including arthroscopy.

With recent advances and breakthroughs in orthopedic surgery, many patients experience faster surgeries, have less exposure to anesthesia and recover more quickly. Bothwell offers patients a dedicated unit which provides specialized nursing care for patients recovering from orthopedic procedures.

As one of the first hospitals in the country to offer a Total Joint Camp, Bothwell works to prepare patients for surgery and post-opt physical therapy. The Total Joint Camp is modeled after the renowned Marshall Steele program, a gold standard for joint replacement surgery. The Bothwell Center for Joint Replacement focuses on enhanced patient education, intensive physical therapy for quicker recovery and a return to normal activities. The program encourages family and coach involvement to aid in the patient’s progress and results in an average length of stay of 1-3 days.

Benefits of the Total Joint Camp include:

  • Enhanced patient education
  • High patient satisfaction scores
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities for patients
  • Increased family involvement in perioperative care
  • Decreased length of hospital stay; the average length of stay is two days
