We Are Experts In Our Field
Certified orthopedic nurses who have received focused training in this medical specialty provide unparalleled care to all patients on the unit. Each registered nurse in the Orthopedic Unit must meet certain criteria to be eligible to sit for the certification exam offered by the National Association of Orthopedic Nurses (NAON). We hold our staff to the highest standards to ensure you receive the highest quality of specialized care.
We will get you moving again.
Each patient receives expert physical therapy the day of surgery, and twice daily thereafter until hospital discharge to ensure a fast road to successful recovery. When needed, a comprehensive sports and work-related injury rehabilitation program is also offered.
We are known for exceeding expectations.
Satisfaction rates for FMC orthopedic patients are consistently at 98 percent, which earned the unit the prestigious President’s Award. Thorough patient education is provided before and after surgery. Both outpatient and inpatient options are available.
Our procedures reduce the need for medication.
During your surgery, we customize your pain treatment based on your specific needs. We use state-of-the-art methods to ensure that your operation is as pain-free as possible. With the introduction of this procedure, usage of oral pain control medication has been reduced by 28% for total joint replacement patients.
