Orthopedics is a specialty that addresses disorders and injuries of the bones, muscles and joints. OMC works closely with orthopedic and sports medicine providers from St. Croix Orthopedics, which has earned a reputation for excellence that has placed them in the top 5% in the nation.
The expertise of our orthopedic specialists includes the treatment of sports injuries, bone fractures, joint replacements, arthroscopy and other orthopedic problems. Our specialists are also highly skilled in a variety of distinctive sub-specialties, such as minimally invasive surgery, hand care and carpal tunnel surgery, and foot and ankle treatments.
Our orthopedic specialists use OMC's John Simenstad Surgery Center, a state-of-the-art surgery facility. The center boasts state-of-the-art operating and outpatient procedure rooms, eight private recovery rooms and a large waiting area separate from the hospital’s main lobby. Improved technologies, such as digital imaging for X-rays and CT scans, provide faster and more accurate diagnoses, while tools such as laparoscopic surgery and surgical scalpels, allow for minimally-invasive procedures.
