Orthopedic Center: Your Path to Joint Replacement Success

Orthopedic surgeons at Galesburg specialize in total joint replacement of the hips and knees, helping bring life-changing relief to those suffering with severe arthritis and other degenerative conditions.

At our dedicated Cottage Orthopedic Center, we take a wellness approach to the journey. Instead of facing surgery and recovery alone, you'll be part of a small group of patients who support each other every step of the way.

It starts with a pre-op class, which includes a comprehensive guidebook covering all you need to know about your upcoming experience. After surgery, you'll check into your room, where a physical therapist will work to get you up and moving the same day. You'll also enjoy a host of amenities for a peaceful and productive stay:

  • Nurses and support staff who specialize in caring for joint patients
  • Your own loose, comfy clothes - no drafty hospital gowns
  • In-room recliner and other specialized equipment
  • Morning newsletters with tips and inspiration to meet each day's goals
  • Twice-a-day group therapy, where you and your fellow campers can cheer each other on
  • Joint program coordinator to answer questions and ensure a smooth transition home

Care for Every Condition

Galesburg offers comprehensive care for a wide range of orthopedic injuries and disorders. The skilled team - featuring orthopedic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, specially trained nurses and more - is focused on relieving your pain and returning you to the life you love.

We use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to diagnose and treat:

  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid) and other chronic joint diseases
  • ACL injuries
  • Back, neck and leg pain
  • Bone disease, including osteoporosis and osteomyelitis
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Hip or knee pain and stiffness
  • Herniated discs
  • Foot and ankle conditions
  • Fractures and other orthopedic trauma
  • Sprains, strains and damage to tendons and muscles
  • Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Sports-related injuries

Our orthopedic surgeons almost always start with a non-invasive approach to care, including physical therapy, pain management, anti-inflammatory medication, splints or immobilization. But when surgery is your best solution, we often offer minimally invasive techniques with low impact on your body and schedule.
