Orthopedic Surgical Services Local Access to Expert Orthopedic Surgeons

Orthopedic injuries can have a major impact on your quality of life. That's why your choice of an orthopedic doctor is so important. 

At Prosser Memorial Health, our orthopedic services are focused on your comfort and mobility—ensuring you get the greatest range of motion with the least amount of pain possible.

When physical therapy, medicine, and alternative therapies aren't an option, we can perform the following orthopedic surgeries:

  • Arthroscopic surgery of the elbow, shoulder, knee and ankle

  • Arthroscopic rotator cuff and reconstructive shoulder stabilization

  • Ligament reconstruction & meniscus repair of the knee

  • General fracture care

  • Total joint replacement, including knee, hip, and shoulder

  • Fracture, tendon, nerve and ligament treatment of the hand

What is arthroscopic surgery?

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally-invasive way to make surgical repairs to bones, ligaments, and joints. During an arthroscopic procedure, your orthopedic doctor will make a small incision and use fine instruments and cameras to investigate the problem and correct it. 

In the past, orthopedic surgeons would have to make larger incisions, which meant more pain and a longer recovery time for patients. With the advent of arthroscopic surgery, our surgeons are now able to get patients back on their feet faster than ever before. 

How do I know if orthopedic surgery is the best option for me?

At Prosser Memorial Health, we consider you to be an integral part of your own care team. When you seek medical care from one of our orthopedic doctors, you'll discuss your past treatments, pain level, and how it's impacting your life. Your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you, and then together, you will determine a treatment plan that fits your goals and your comfort level.

Healthcare is not one-size-fits-all. Sometimes there are several options to try before resorting to surgery. Sometimes surgery is the only option for a permanent fix. That's why we're committed to personalized medicine. 

How long will it take to recover from orthopedic surgery?

Recovery times depend largely on the nature of your injury, the type of surgery you have, and your willingness to participate in physical therapy and rehabilitation. Some knee surgeries, for instance, have you up and walking that same day, while others require that you put zero pressure on your leg for several weeks. 

If you are preparing for orthopedic surgery, talk to your doctor about the anticipated length of your recovery time, as well as any medical equipment, physical rehabilitation, and aftercare you might need.

This is how we care.

Around here, caring means more than exceptional medical care at world-class facilities. Care goes beyond the doctor’s office, the hospital, or the HIPAA agreement. To us, care is personal—from the gut, and from the heart. It’s about coming together to mend spirits with personal connections every day.
