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.

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.
