Orthopedics, Bone, & Joint

ORTHOPEDICS

Orthopedics is a comprehensive medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and allows you to move, work and be active. Your knees and hips have a wide range of motion and carry your full body weight which makes them susceptible to injury and arthritis.

With our staff of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, a new Surgery Center and an inpatient rehabilitation unit, orthopedics continues to grow at Garden City Hospital. The area’s aging population is living longer, more active lives, thus contributing to increased demand for joint repair and replacement. Garden City Hospital orthopedics offers the latest in these surgical techniques, including the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) system. This alternative to hip replacement allows patients to retain the hip bones and continue active lifestyles. The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, for patients who have more complex medical conditions, provides intensive therapy so patients can regain independence after surgery.

Awards

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. Individual outcomes may vary. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
