    Our program is designed to prepare patients for surgery and support them throughout the entire recovery process. The procedures available at Atlantic General Hospital meet the highest standards.More
    Our program is designed to prepare patients for surgery and support them throughout the entire recovery process. Orthopaedic Surgical Procedures available at Atlantic General Hospital include: total hip replacement, total knee replacement, total shoulder replacement, revision of total knee replacements, fracture repair, reconstructive knee surgery, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder, and so much more. More

Our goal is to provide our patients with the most advanced techniques possible to assist them with smooth recovery from surgery and the most benefit from healthy, long-lasting implants. Our physicians use the latest tools in sophisticated surgical techniques such as arthroscopy and other minimally invasive procedures. In fact, the physicians at the Center offer a new procedure allowing for complete hip or knee joint replacement through a 4-inch incision (versus the traditional 8 or 9), for patients who qualify. This is only one example of the cutting edge technology with new materials that will allow your joint replacement to last longer and provide you with increasing independence.

We also utilize a very experienced, multidisciplinary group of professionals. Your recovery will involve not only your physician and surgical staff, but also a team of admissions personnel, nursing staff, physical and occupational therapists, discharge planners, dietitians, and pharmacists. By encompassing everyone in the surgery and recovery process, the patient remains the focus of attention. We try to meet every need of the patient before they realize it is a need.

The entire healthcare system is connected via a secure Intranet, and information about patient status is instantly available at locations throughout the complex to our medical staff. This state of the art information system allows the physician to coordinate your care with the rest of the healthcare team.
