Taking care of a severely injured or diseased joint is more than just applying state-of-the-art surgical techniques. It is the skilled, hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of care. We are not treating a joint, we are treating a human being.
Muscle, bone, and joint conditions affect many people’s ability to perform daily activities. Washington Health System Orthopedics and Neurosciences is at the forefront of providing state-of-the-art orthopedic procedures. We apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort.
It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, if and when a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our orthopedic surgeons are trained to correct problems related to joint pain.
The Joint Care Program promotes an attitude of healthiness and focuses on wellness, motivation, and independence. Our patients participate in a blend of individual treatments provided by a multi-specialty team along with designated group activities that provide encouragement and promote a successful recovery. Our goal is to return each patient to an active lifestyle, free of pain, as soon as possible.
