Orthopaedic Surgery

Whether you have a broken bone, you need a hip or knee replacement, or you require spine surgery, our orthopaedic surgeons are experienced in the latest advances in minimally invasive procedures that will correct the issue and help you feel like yourself again.

Total Joint Replacement

When your joint pain is keeping you from the things in life that matter, choose total joint replacement surgery at our in-house award-winning surgical center to restore movement and function.



At OrthoUnited, our surgeons are experts at performing minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery to diagnose and repair injuries and conditions affecting the joints, including the shoulder, elbow, knee, wrist, and ankle.

Fractures & Dislocations Surgery

Simple fractures may call for only casting or splinting, while more complex injuries may require surgical intervention. Whatever your injury, rest assured that the experienced orthopaedic surgeons at OrthoUnited can put you on the road to recovery.


What to expect before & after surgery

Before Surgery

  • Lifestyle Interventions - Before scheduling your surgery, we will discuss any lifestyle interventions that may be necessary to reduce your risk of complications as well as improve your surgical outcomes.
  • Health History - Once you are scheduled for surgery, one of our nurse educators will call you to complete a detailed health history assessment and to schedule your education session.
  • Patient Education - We host group classes about one week before your procedure to present the details about your surgery and outline your process for recovery. While you’re enjoying your catered lunch, we will explain everything you need to know about your procedure, including pre-op instructions, post-operative care, and what to expect during your stay if you are scheduled to stay at one of our surgical suites.
  • Prep with the Anesthesiologist - You will also be scheduled for an appointment with an anesthesiologist to discuss your medical history, complete a basic airway assessment, and plan the anesthesia to be used the day of surgery.

After Surgery

  • Recovery Time - If you are going home on the same day as your surgery, you will be given the minimal amount of anesthesia necessary to keep you comfortable, yet allow you to easily recover from the anesthetic. Five hours after your surgery, you will be offered assistance by our medical staff to help you out of bed so you can walk.
  • Arriving Home - Your support person(s) will be instructed on what to expect after you arrive back home. We will schedule your physical therapy session for the day after your surgery before you leave.
  • Rest and Therapy - Rest and therapeutic exercises, along with closely following any other postoperative instructions, are the best ingredients for full recuperation.
