Arthritis Care

Arthritis can attack any joint at any time, making life uncomfortable. Health Quest tackles the challenge from many directions — from classes in nutrition, lifestyle and exercise to infusion care to a special hand therapy program. Orthopedic surgeons use the latest microsurgery techniques for arthritis. For more information, see Rheumatology.

Orthopedic Surgery

Whether you are facing a total hip or knee replacement, considering complex spine surgery or need a fractured bone reset, our goal is to help you regain your mobility with the least possible pain. All four Health Quest hospitals are experienced in the most advanced, minimally invasive procedures available, including robotic surgery for hips and knees. For more information, see General Orthopedic Surgery.

Outpatient Physical Therapy

Orthopedic care starts with evaluating your pain. Following diagnostic evaluation, your physician may prescribe nonsurgical treatment such as physical therapy or pain management. To help you regain mobility, all four hospitals and conveniently located satellite offices are staffed with skilled physical and occupational therapists using the latest in therapeutic equipment and methodologies.

Pain Management

At Health Quest, we take your pain seriously. Those living with chronic pain or recuperating post-surgery have experienced great results with our pain management programs. Besides traditional methods, we also use innovative wellness and complementary care approaches. For more information, see Pain Management.

Sports Medicine

Health Quest has orthopedic teams that specialize in sports-related conditions, such as ligament and cartilage tears, fractures and sprains. When medication and physical therapy aren't enough, there are many options for same-day surgeries in one of our outpatient ambulatory facilities, so you can more quickly get back in the action. To learn more, see General Orthopedic Surgery.

Patient Education

Education for our orthopedic patients is a high priority at Health Quest. Among the classes we offer are pre-surgery total joint replacement, nutrition for healthy bones, spine education and arthritis personal care.
