Your Plan of Care

Your orthopedic experience may often start with a visit to your primary care provider, who will help direct your initial care. They may refer you to an orthopedic specialist who will determine your plan of care, which may or may not include surgery.

Whether you plan to visit St. Joseph Hospital for an outpatient diagnostic procedure or major reconstructive surgery, we work with you to develop your individualized treatment plan, to best fit your specific needs. Your treatment plan may include rehabilitative therapy, medication, surgical procedures, and/or a combination of these. If surgery is required, we have the talent and technology to offer advanced state of the art surgical options. As a continuum of our comprehensive orthopedic care, we provide rehabilitation services in six convenient locations throughout the community. Our goal is to help you return to an active lifestyle as quickly and safely as possible.
