Treatment

Our orthopedics program provides comprehensive, top-quality treatment for orthopedic conditions caused by illness, arthritis injury, trauma or congenital conditions. We have the expertise and technology to assure better results and fewer complications.

We provide treatment through the latest medical, mechanical, and surgical interventions. For many orthopedic disorders and injuries, more than one form of treatment may be necessary. At South Shore Hospital, you can feel confident that you will have access to the most current and specialized treatments available.

Quite often, orthopedic conditions can be treated and managed with non-operative interventions and do not require surgery. In these cases, treatment may include physical therapy techniques, exercise regimes, and/or anti-inflammatory and pain medications. When surgery is needed, South Shore Hospital has invested in talent and technology to offer the most advanced surgical options, including the latest minimally-invasive procedures, computer-assisted surgical navigation, and the most current options in joint replacement surgery.

Computer-Assisted Surgery

Computer-assisted surgery is a revolutionary technology that visually guides surgeons through complicated operative procedures such as hip and knee replacement surgeries. During surgery, high-tech tracking software displays real-time, multi-dimensional views of the patient's internal anatomy on a computer monitor. The constant flow of information from the surgical site enables the surgeon to manipulate sophisticated micro-instruments through smaller incisions, and position implant components with greater accuracy. Surgeons also use innovative computer mapping systems to pre-plan and map out surgeries prior to operating on the patient.
