Affiliated with the University of Louisville, the fellowship-trained, board-certified Jewish Orthopedic Care physicians and nursing staff are leaders in all areas of orthopaedic care, including emergency, surgery, rehab and home care.
The 28-bed Orthopedic program provides a comprehensive approach to patient care, including prevention, education, diagnosis and treatment for acute or chronic bone or joint disorders. Procedures for total joint replacement and sports medicine, as well as treatment of the hand, back and spine, hip, foot, ankle, knee and shoulder are available, including specialists in pain management, rehabilitation and arthritis.
Orthopedic nurses have also had the opportunity to provide pre- and post-operative care to the nation’s first hand transplant and the region’s first double hand transplant recipients.
A multidisciplinary team approach is used to provide patient care, so nurses in the Orthopedic Center are able to work with many different areas of practice, including orthopedic coordinators, physical therapists, occupational therapists and discharge planning.
