Advanced spine surgery
Wesley Healthcare offers the most advanced spine imaging technology—the O-arm™ Surgical Imaging System.
This technology provides your surgeon with real-time, 3D images during spine surgery, which means your surgeon can check hardware placement before finishing the operation, which reduces the need for follow-up procedures.
Wesley offers an Accredited Joint Replacement Program for both knee and hip replacement surgeries. From preoperative education to postoperative rehabilitation, our team is with you throughout your journey to ensure positive surgical outcomes and healthy recovery.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Your orthopedic specialist at Wesley Healthcare may order physical therapy and/or occupational therapy as a nonsurgical treatment or as a rehabilitation technique after surgery. Our certified therapists will work with you and your referring doctor to create a personalized regimen for a successful recovery.
As you age, you become more susceptible to joint and bone injuries. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, roughly 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass, which can increase your risk for osteoporosis. An estimated one in two women—and up to one in four men—50 years old and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
Doctors at Wesley Healthcare work with each patient to help alleviate joint pain, improve joint health and prevent osteoporosis. Early intervention is key to keeping your joints healthy and maintaining an active, long-term lifestyle.
Pediatric orthopedic care
If your child needs orthopedic care, you can rest assured he or she will receive personalized, child-friendly care at Wesley Children's Hospital. We will keep you informed and educate you on your child’s condition and treatment options, so you can make informed decisions about your child’s care.
