Orthopedics

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Joint and back pain likely won't go away on its own. Sometimes it can be treated with medications. Other times, surgery is the best option. The orthopedic surgeons at SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital will work with you and your primary doctor. Together, we will develop the most effective approach to relieve your pain and get you back on track.

SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital is considered the best orthopedic service provider in the region. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of bone and muscle disorders. We offer the latest techniques, including a variety of minimally invasive options.​

​After surgery, you will find comfort in our private rooms, located in our dedicated orthopedics unit. We also offer a skilled rehabilitation program to speed up your recovery. ​
