Earning our ranking
The Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center provides a fully integrated approach to patient care -- from initial evaluation to surgery and rehabilitation. Members of the same specially trained surgical staff will be with you throughout your treatment to make sure you are comfortable and receiving the best care possible.
When pain begins to affect your quality of life and is forcing you to give up the things you enjoy most, our surgeons will discuss all the options available for your particular situation – be it surgical or non-surgical.
You’ll feel confident in knowing that our joint specialists have decades of experience in treating hip and knee conditions. That experience has been gained through the more than 12,000 surgeries a year that Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center physicians perform – that more surgeries than most other area hospitals. And, higher surgical volumes typically result in better patient outcomes because of an increased familiarity with procedures and improved technique.
Our specialists’ expertise will help improve your quality of life and allow you freedom to return to the activities you enjoy. We have several experts who can perform direct anterior total hip replacement which offers faster recovery and healing.
Specialization is equally as important as experience when considering orthopedic treatment. In addition to higher volumes and sophisticated treatment options, Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center’s specialized care provides:
- Significantly decreased risk of infection
- Shortened length of hospital stay
Our surgeons are active members of Summa Health System’s teaching and medical education staffs. They continually work to improve upon existing procedures and technology to ensure maximum patient benefit.
They also conduct research in a number of venues. One research project is the development of Apatone®B (a combination of vitamins C and K3), a drug that may increase the lifespan of artificial joint replacements and decrease inflammation that sometimes occurs after surgery.
