Our sports medicine clinic offers advanced technology, expert advice, injury prevention and assessment, health and fitness training and rehabilitation for athletes of all ages.

Advanced orthopedic treatments

Some orthopedic problems can be resolved easily with lifestyle changes or strengthening exercises while other issues require more complex treatment. If nonsurgical solutions will not alleviate your pain and symptoms, our orthopedic surgeons use advanced technology to perform the least invasive surgical procedures possible, such as robot-assisted and arthroscopic surgery.

Some of the specific treatments we provide include:

Hip replacement

Hip replacement surgery at our hospital gives you access to comprehensive orthopedic care. This includes our total hip replacement program, which is accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation's leading authority on quality and continuous improvement in healthcare. This designation means we are recognized for our high-quality care and commitment to patient safety.

Knee replacement

Our knee replacement program is also accredited by The Joint Commission. For knee replacement procedures, we use advanced surgical technology and imaging that allows for a better prosthetic fit, faster recovery and enhanced function.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Your orthopedic specialist may suggest physical therapy as a nonsurgical treatment or as post-surgical rehabilitation. Our expert physical therapists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists work with you to create a personalized therapy regimen for your condition, lifestyle and health. Our goal is to help you recover, regain skills and improve your everyday life.

Shoulder replacement

Shoulder pain can limit your range of motion, making it difficult to do every day activities, like brushing your teeth or putting on clothes. Should shoulder replacement surgery be necessary, our orthopedic surgeons have extensive experience in treating simple to complex cases, including repairing previous shoulder surgeries.

Specialized spine services

Johnston-Willis Hospital is one of the few hospitals on the East Coast with operating suites, teams and recovery facilities dedicated to brain and nervous system care, which is essential for spine surgeries and recoveries.

We offer this valuable care through our specialized spine care program in our state-of-the-art Brain and Spine Center. Here, your care is provided by board-certified doctors who are specially trained in orthopedics, orthopedic surgery, sports medicine and neurosurgery. Many specialists are also fellowship trained in their fields.

Robotic spine surgery

We offer robot-assisted spine surgery—a minimally invasive technology that provides our spine surgeons increased precision and accuracy while requiring only a few small incisions. This results in better outcomes and a quicker recovery for our patients.
