Does pain or limitation of movement affect the quality of your life?
An orthopedic physician is the right doctor for you to help reduce your pain and get you back into action as quickly as possible. Orthopedic physicians at Main Line Health treat patients from around the Philadelphia region for simple to complex sports and accident-related injuries as well as the painful effects of many conditions that limit your mobility and cause pain.
Most of us move our bodies without a second thought—we walk, run, lift, bend and play without ever thinking about it—until an injury or illness limits us in some way. The seemingly “effortless” movement of our bodies actually relies on a complex set of coordinated systems with your musculoskeletal system—your body’s bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, cartilage, tendons and connective tissue—giving your body its form and stability, as well as movement.
We are experts in orthopedic treatments and procedures
Orthopedic physicians at Main Line Health treat arthritis pain, sprains and strains, cartilage, tendon and ligament injuries, broken bones and dislocations and joints that need to be repaired or replaced. We are experts in treating sports and trauma-related injuries that happen after a blow or force such as being tackled in football or wiping out on your skateboard, as well as overuse injuries such as stress fractures and tendinitis.
We are also experts in joint replacement procedures for wear and tear injuries and those associated with other health conditions such as arthritis, bursitis and tendinitis.
Why choose Main Line Health for orthopedic services?
Non-surgical and state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical treatment
With more than 100 orthopedic physicians who perform thousands of procedures every year, we offer non-surgical treatments such as steroidal injections, physical therapy and other state-of-the-art techniques to alleviate pain and improve movement. We are also leaders in minimally-invasive, muscle-sparing procedures that offer a faster recovery for you, with some procedures even done in an outpatient setting.
Leaders in precision and experts in custom-fit procedures
We use robotic-assisted technologies such as MAKOplasty® for partial and total knee and hip replacement and NAVIO® for total knee replacement to increase precision and improve outcomes for joint replacement procedures. We were among the first to perform reverse total shoulder replacement surgery and custom-fit knee replacement surgery; we are also leaders in cartilage restoration using the body’s own healthy cartilage to replace the damaged.
Ranked one of the best hospitals for orthopedic care
Main Line Health’s Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital and Riddle Hospital—serving the Philadelphia suburbs and surrounding areas—have been ranked by U.S. News and World Report among the best hospitals for orthopedics. Our surgeons and staff have been serving the community for decades and we are known for our one-on-one patient treatment plans that are customized to your unique concerns and needs from your very first appointment through all of your follow-up visits.
In advance of your orthopedic procedure, you can participate in seminars throughout your community to learn more about your condition and surgery and ask any questions that may concern you about your hospital stay and rehabilitation. Your room will be private if your procedure requires a hospital stay, and your post-surgical physical rehabilitation therapy is available in many locations and at varying levels of intensity based on your needs.
A collaborative approach
For more complex conditions and injuries, many of Main Line Health’s orthopedic physicians have expertise in medical subspecialties such as hand surgery, brain and spine surgery and oncology. Your Main Line Health orthopedic specialist will help you in your decision-making about your specific condition and treatment options. We offer evaluations, minimally-invasive surgeries, joint replacement procedures, hand surgeries, neuro-orthopedic procedures, and both physical therapy to prepare you for your procedure as well as physical therapy after your procedure at all four acute care hospitals.
