Why NCSH Should Be Your Choice for Orthopedic Surgery

Half of all American adults are affected by musculoskeletal conditions, with the most common complaints being arthritis, back pain, and trauma. Orthopedists at NCSH are in high demand, helping patients with these types of injuries and conditions find solutions and relief.

A premier orthopedic surgery center or specialty hospital can offer specialized diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of conditions. NCSH is a regional leader in both surgical and nonsurgical treatments for sports injuries, joint pain, spinal diseases, and more.

About Orthopedic Surgery

A center for orthopedic surgery is a medical facility that offers this particular type of surgical specialty. Orthopedics refers to medical conditions and injuries related to the musculoskeletal system, including bones and soft tissue, like muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Orthopedic surgeons specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating these types of conditions and injuries. They offer both surgical and nonsurgical options, often beginning with the most conservative treatments and offering surgery when necessary.

About Ambulatory and Specialty Hospitals

Ambulatory surgical centers and specialty hospitals are medical facilities that provide outpatient procedures in specific specialties. General or traditional hospitals treat all patients for all types of conditions.

Surgeons and specialists often choose to work in specialty types of facilities for greater control over patient care and the ability to work with other experts in their fields.

Specialty hospitals focus on a narrower type of care. This gives surgeons a chance to improve outcomes by performing similar procedures repeatedly rather than being required to treat all conditions and patients.

Why Patients Choose Specialty Hospitals

Patients are also increasingly choosing ambulatory and specialty hospitals for orthopedic and other types of specialized care. Reports show that the market for these facilities will grow by as much as $55 billion by 2025. There are several reasons patients choose specialty hospitals for orthopedic surgery:

  • An orthopedic surgery center or specialty surgical hospital can offer patients greater control over their care. Many of these facilities are physician-owned. The specialists do not answer to boards and administrators and are better able to work with their patients to empower them to make informed health care decisions.
  • Safety and good outcomes are a top priority for patients undergoing orthopedic surgery. Even for relatively simple outpatient procedures, patients want to know that they are trusting their care to skilled specialists, like those they find at specialty hospitals.
  • Specialty hospitals are more efficient, and therefore, more cost-effective. Patients are increasingly savvy consumers when it comes to health care. They expect physicians and hospitals to compete for their business. With a focus on only certain types of conditions and treatments, specialty hospitals can operate more efficiently and provide more value to patients.
