Orthopedic Surgery

Get your bone and joint care from Owensboro Health orthopedic doctors who are board-certified or eligible for board certification in orthopedic surgery —meaning they’re trained in the latest and best treatments for your condition. Whenever possible, your surgeon will perform your procedure using arthroscopy or another minimally invasive technique that reduces pain, scarring and recovery time. Take advantage of treatments such as:

  • Fracture repair
  • Ligament repair, including ACL reconstruction
  • Radial head replacement for traumatic elbow injuries
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve entrapment)
  • Tendon repair

Continuum Of Care

To help you get the best outcome from surgery, an Owensboro Health Medical Group orthopedic specialist might advise you to improve your overall health before your procedure. In that case, you’ll easily transfer to another provider in the Owensboro Health system for care that helps you get in good shape for treatment.
