Orthopedic Surgery

Our orthopedic surgeons employ the newest technology for the best results — and a faster recovery.

Slidell Memorial Hospital’s full-service orthopedic facility offers everything you need, from highly trained surgeons and minimally invasive procedures to 24-hour pain management experts.

The orthopedic surgeons at SMH are trained from diagnosis to preoperative, surgical and postoperative procedures. This means that from diagnosis to recovery, you’re in skilled hands.  

What Does Our Orthopedic Team Treat?

We treat injuries and diseases involving the body’s musculoskeletal system. This includes:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Nerves

The injuries and conditions we treat include:

Newest Technology in Orthopedics

Our state-of-the-art equipment improves your surgical experience in important ways. For example, the HanaTM Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Table provides extensive maneuverability, continuous LED monitoring and a surgeon-controlled, powered femoral lift for improved surgical access. 

What does this mean for you? It means you’ll experience a less invasive, single-incision orthopedic surgery procedure — one that offers immediate stability after hip surgery.

After Surgery, What Is Recovery Like?

Our full-service orthopedic center offers an outpatient rehab center, where you’ll receive the ongoing care you need to regain your mobility and independence.

SMH places a high priority on pain management. We want our patients to feel better faster. That’s why our board-certified anesthesiologists are available 24 hours a day to help with pain management needs.
