Complete Orthopedic Care
Your care with Genesis Orthopedic Services may begin with advanced imaging tests to assess your injury or condition. When appropriate, your medical team will then recommend starting treatment with conservative measures such as:
- Casting or splinting provided by registered orthopedic technologists
- Closed reduction of fractures – Sets a broken bone without surgery
- Joint aspiration – Drains fluid from a joint to relieve swelling
- Injections - Corticosteroid (temporarily eases arthritis pain) and visco-supplementation (lubricates joints)
- Shoulder and knee manipulation under anesthesia – Improves range of motion by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue
If orthopedic surgery is your best option, you’ll benefit from board-certified orthopedic surgeons trained in the latest advances in treating your condition.
Our specialized rehabilitation program speeds your recovery after a serious injury or surgery related to a bone or joint. Compassionate professionals at Genesis Hospital provide physical therapy, occupational therapy and other services that help you meet personalized goals and increase your independence. Your rehabilitation program may include training in:
- Home management

- Prosthetic and orthotic use
Your rehabilitation team can also assess your driving ability and refer you to programs designed to help you get safely back on the road.
