Orthopedics

Orthopedic care is a branch of medicine focusing on the structures of the musculoskeletal system, which frequently sustains damage due to injuries, the aging process, or repetitive use. Orthopedic conditions may be an ongoing source of pain, and they can create a number of problems in daily life due to immobility or limited range-of-motion. The Orthopedic & Spine Center of Palms West Hospital is readily available to address your orthopedic care needs in Loxahatchee with customized services that can reduce recovery time and help you stay pain-free for life.

Do You Need Orthopedic Care?

The need for orthopedic care may arise following an acute injury, or it could stem from ongoing pain that has not responded to rest and over-the-counter medication. Our orthopedic staff can address pain and injuries in all parts of the body, so you should not hesitate to seek care with us when discomfort of the bones, muscles, or joints is bothering you.

Palms West Orthopedic & Spine Center

The Orthopedic & Spine Center features eight dedicated, private suites for patients in need of surgery and other procedures requiring a hospital stay. All patients will feel welcome in our beautifully modern facilities, where treatments may range from the most conservative care to complex surgical procedures. Here is a closer look at the distinct practice areas of our Orthopedic Center.

  • Joint replacement – Osteoarthritis is one of the most common orthopedic conditions in older adults, and it is also a likely cause behind significant joint damage and inflammation. When the joints in the hips, knees, or shoulders become permanently damaged by osteoarthritis or other degenerative conditions, joint replacement may be the best solution for easing pain and promoting a more active lifestyle.
  • Spine disorders and back pain – Back pain may be addressed through a number of pain management techniques, surgeries, or rehabilitative therapies. With the most advanced imaging capabilities, our spine specialists can make an accurate diagnosis to facilitate the right treatment.
  • Fractures, sprains, and strains – Musculoskeletal injuries can range significantly in their severity, but most fractures, sprains, and strains will require a visit to an orthopedic physician followed by physical therapy for a full recovery.
  • Podiatry – The feet undergo great stress in daily activities, so proper foot care may be essential for active individuals. Our podiatric services can address issued ranging from bunions to foot fractures or bone deformities.
