Orthopedic care

Orthopedic services at New Ulm Medical Center

Orthopedics involves the care of the musculoskeletal system. This system of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves makes it possible for your body to move.

Our board-certified orthopedic specialists can help you with a variety of health problems with non-surgical or surgical treatments. They have many years of experience working to help patients prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate their orthopedic conditions. Whether you have ongoing pain in joints from regular wear and tear or are experiencing pain from a sports injury, orthopedic specialists can reduce your pain and get you back to an active lifestyle.

Common orthopedic conditions we treat

  • arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • knee replacements
  • hip replacements
  • shoulder replacements
  • sports injuries
  • rotator cuff tears
  • injuries, such as a broken bone, torn ligament, shoulder separation, ankle sprain or muscle strain

The decision to move ahead with a total joint replacement is not an easy one. The team at New Ulm Medical Center – from your primary care doctor to the orthopedic surgeon to the physical therapists at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, and everyone in between – are here to make sure your surgery and recovery are successful. Our goal is to get you back to a better quality of life so you can enjoy all the things you love to do.
