Cutting Edge Treatments
Cutting Edge Orthopedic Treatment – Now in Nashua
Updating technology to find new ways of helping people return to the lifestyle they value through integrated orthopedic treatment is our goal at St. Joseph Hospital. That’s why our orthopedics procedures are constantly evolving, including our affiliation with Lahey Health.
Care starts with state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services. St. Joseph Hospital was the first in the community to implement PACS (Picture Archiving & Communication System), allowing images and information to be accessed by multiple users at multiple locations simultaneously and increase the ease with which consultations can occur between the medical staff and our dedicated expert radiologists.
Once a course of orthopedic treatment is determined, a patient can be confident of receiving the best care for a full spectrum of orthopedic conditions, from strains, sprains and fractures to total joint replacement and complex revision surgery.
Joint replacement surgery is a major focus at St. Joseph Hospital as our surgeons provide replacement of knees, shoulders, hips and ankles. Lahey surgeons sub-specializing in the replacement of these joints are readily available for consultation.
Shoulder replacements are an emerging technology and alternative for people with rheumatoid arthritis who can’t relieve their pain through medication or physical therapy. A focus in sports medicine helps athletes of all ages and abilities return to their sport as quickly as possible with the use of minimally invasive treatments.
All surgery is performed in one of St. Joseph Hospital’s nine new, state-of-the-art surgical suites. The fully renovated pre-operative and recovery rooms are designed with your utmost privacy in mind.
