Orthopedics, Trauma & Joint Replacement Surgery

The Department of Orthopedics, Trauma & Joint Replacement Surgery

SUPRAJA is on the forefront of orthopaedic surgeries, including surgery through tiny incisions, disc replacement surgery and minimally invasive surgeries. We're focused on reducing pain, shortening recovery and returning you to normal activity. Our orthopaedic specialists have the training, knowledge and skill to help you live with less pain.

Supraja's total joint replacement program features a patient navigator who will work with patients and families before and after surgery, providing education and support.

The good news is that many injuries can be treated without surgery, and for the team of orthopaedic (bone and joint) specialists at Adena Health System, that's the goal. Our orthopaedic team follows a conservative approach to care - beginning with the least invasive treatment available -- in the hopes that surgery isn't necessary.

Unless you have a traumatic injury that requires emergency care, an Supraja sports medicine physician will assess your condition. Some injuries simply require rest and over-the-counter pain medications. Others might need physical therapy or injections for the pain. Surgery is considered only if medications, physical therapy and other treatments are unsuccessful.
