Orthopaedic Services

Overview

Our Gallatin orthopedic surgery services (orthopaedic surgery services) include diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Having an injury such as a torn rotator cuff or a fractured hip can cause a lot of down time from a person’s daily routine, but being able to receive treatment from start to finish at one location, close to home, can help make the process more convenient.  SRMC has orthopedic surgery specialists on staff specializing in problems of the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, spine, foot and ankle.

From diagnostic testing that determines the existence or severity of an injury, to convenient same-day surgery suites and a combination of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation therapies, Sumner Regional Medical Center is committed to providing a full range of Gallatin orthopedic surgery services, including total joint replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery is often recommended when all other treatment options, including rest, medication, exercise, and physical therapy, have been exhausted. Joint replacement surgery can have a tremendous impact on a patient's quality of life by improving independence and mobility, and reducing joint-related pain. To help our joint replacement patients achieve the best outcomes from their surgeries, we offer Joint Success Training Classes at SRMC. 

Preoperative Education for Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint Success Training Classes will help you prepare a pre-surgery checklist, educate you about what to expect before and after surgery, how to manage pain following discharge from the hospital, and help you set post-operation goals to ensure you achieve the best overall outcome from your joint replacement surgery.  You'll even meet with surgery staff and rehabilitation therapists to learn more about your operation, medications you will be given, how to prevent injuries while you heal and get the answers to any questions you and your loved ones may have about your surgery.
