Our rehabilitation center
Coliseum Rehabilitation Center helps patients overcome functional limitations brought on by injury or illness. This is accomplished through both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services.
When a knee or hip joint wears out, an orthopedic surgeon needs to surgically put a prosthetic hip, knee or shoulder implant in the bone.
Anterior hip replacement
Called the direct anterior or “front’ approach, anterior hip replacement involves making an incision on the front of the hip rather than the side or back as traditionally done. As a result, the surgeon can follow the natural spaces between the hip joint’s muscles and tendons, resulting in less damage to these soft tissues.
A surgeon can make small incisions around a joint and surgically fix joint problems. Arthroscopy can be performed on knees, hips, shoulders and wrists, for example.
Hand and wrist surgery
Usually this surgery stems from fractures or arthritis. Additionally, Coliseum has occupational therapists that specialize in hand and wrist rehabilitation.
Spine and back surgery
Our orthopedic surgeons are specialized in spine care and can help heal your ailment to optimize your mobility. Spine and back conditions may range from a herniated disc to a neck or spine fracture.
These surgical procedures are designed to get athletes back on the field as soon as possible. Multiple tendons and ligaments can be injured due to the repetition of joint use in sports.
