St. Elizabeth's Medical Center Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is involved in all aspects of diagnosis and treatment of the diseases and injuries related to the musculoskeletal system, including the bone and joints of arms, legs and spine. Our orthopedic physicians serve hundreds of patients each year.
With access to advanced MRI and x-ray equipment, state-of-the-art operating rooms and complete physical therapy services, we’ll get you pain free and back to playing or watching soccer very soon.
Not all bone and joint issues and injuries require surgery. Our team is trained specifically to work with each patient on an individualized treatment plan with the goal of restoring to you an excellent quality of life.
If surgery is recommended, our board-certified physicians, all of whom are affiliated with Tufts University School of Medicine, have access to a modern operating suite with exceptional nursing and support staff and the most advanced equipment.
The Bone and Joint Center offers special expertise in sports medicine whether it be for professional, collegiate, school age, amateur athletes or the weekend warrior. In addition, members of the St. Elizabeth’s Sports Medicine Team also serve as orthopedic consultants for Boston College Athletics, Boston Cannons Major League Lacrosse, Boston Breakers Women’s Professional Soccer and many area college and high school sport teams.
For injuries that sideline any level of athlete, our experts employ the most up-to-date medical and surgical treatments. We are one of the few centers in the country to use less-invasive arthroscopic surgery techniques to repair shoulder rotator cuff injuries. We also employ state-of-the-art arthroscopic surgical techniques to repair anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) knee injuries.
Hand and upper extremity experts in St. Elizabeth's Bone and Joint Center are capable of treating patients with any upper extremity orthopedic problems including traumatic or repetitive motion injuries, nerve injuries, or debilitating arthritic conditions. Our surgical treatments include less-invasive endoscopic surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome that can greatly reduce recovery time and have patients in therapy sooner than traditional surgery.
For patients of all ages requiring total joint replacement or revision, our orthopedic surgeons have the expertise and experience needed to perform complex surgeries on the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, hand or wrist. Many procedures are minimally invasive and all are accompanied by a full range of surgical, inpatient and rehabilitative care services to return you to a full and active lifestyle. All joint replacement surgeries are done in modern operating rooms specially designed for complex orthopedic procedures.
