Services We Offer

The orthopedic surgeons at MPH provide holistic care for the health problems of the musculoskeletal system. Your muscle and bone doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient to help preserve mobility and limit the progression of acute and chronic conditions such as:

  • Cancer affecting the bones or spine
  • Bowleg, clubfoot, and other limb abnormalities
  • ACL tears, tendonitis, sprains, and other ligament and tendon injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic back and joint pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Broken bones
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs and other spinal cord injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Joint dislocation

When making a diagnosis requires imaging services, you can get the tests you need right here at MPH- Granby Campus. Our hospital offers X-rays, MRI scans, discography, computed tomography, bone scans, and arthrograms.

Nonsurgical Treatments

Often, orthopedic practitioners start with conservative measures to treat symptoms affecting the musculoskeletal system. These often include:

  • Lifestyle changes such as nutrition and physical activity
  • Medications to reduce pain and swelling such as anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, and prescription or over-the-counter pain medications
  • Immobilization techniques such as casts, splints, and braces to promote healing
  • Stretches and exercises to improve mobility, range of motion, flexibility, and strength

Rehabilitation after a surgery or injury strives to help the patient regain mobility, range of motion, flexibility, and strength. Middle Park Health- Granby Campus offers the full scope of physical and occupational rehabilitation, including custom splints, cupping, dry needling, spine stabilization, joint mobilization, wrist and hand therapy, rehab for sports injuries, vestibular therapy, fall prevention, orthotics, total joint therapy, concussion management, aquatic therapy, and chronic pain management.

Surgical Treatments

When non-surgical treatments do not help improve an orthopedic condition, our team may recommend surgery. Some of the most common orthopedic surgery procedures include:

  • Release surgery, which relieves nerve pressure for patients who have carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Soft tissue repair to treat damage to tendons, ligaments, and muscles
  • Osteotomy, in which the surgeon adjusts part of a bone to address arthritis or another bone condition, such as bunion or hammertoe
  • Spinal fusion, which involves grafting two bones so they fuse together
  • Internal fixation used to hold bones in place with hardware while they heal
  • Joint replacement to remove and restore damaged or diseased joints, such as the shoulder, knee, or hip
  • Cartilage repair or resurfacing

Some procedures require traditional open surgery while others may improve with minimally invasive procedures.
