Genesis Orthopedic Team
You're in good hands with the team of Genesis orthopedic specialists. Whether it's managing your joint pain through physical therapy, exercise or lifestyle changes, or performing surgery to replace a joint, our orthopedic specialists have extensive training and skill to restore you to active living.
The Genesis team includes six board-certified orthopedic surgeons. Board certification requires extensive training and exam completion and ongoing continuing education.
Inpatient Orthopedic Unit
After inpatient surgery, patients who require hospitalization stay on the orthopedic unit at Genesis-Bethesda. A total renovation of this unit in 2004 transformed it into a warm and healing environment. Caregivers on this unit are specially trained to care for patients who have had orthopedic surgeries, and they continually fine-tune their skills by caring only for orthopedic patients.
Physical therapy is used as a treatment itself, or to help you regain mobility and independence after surgery. Therapy is provided on the orthopedic unit and the Genesis rehabilitation unit. Outpatient therapy is provided at Genesis' Center for Occupational and Outpatient Rehabilitation.
