Putting an end to joint and back pain
At the Orthopaedic & Spine Center, we have assembled a team of experienced,
highly trained and compassionate surgeons, pain management specialists,
nurses, physical therapists and athletic trainers who deliver seamlessly
integrated, carefully coordinated care. Here, in this single location
on our Brunswick Campus, you will receive the latest treatments designed
to help you quickly return to your daily life.
The concept behind the Orthopaedic & Spine Center goes well beyond
the hospital stay to encompass the entire experience. Our team members
pay special attention to ensuring you understand your procedure, what
you need to do before surgery, and what to expect afterward.
Orthopaedic & Spine Center – A facility like no other
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center is designed like a fine hotel, beautifully
decorated with designer touches such as rich cherry wood paneling and
warm tones. The spacious, suite-style private patient rooms allow increased
patient maneuverability and include recliners for comfortable patient
sitting, showers and toilets designed to accommodate patient needs, sleeper
sofas for overnight guests and upgraded patient monitoring systems.
For enjoyment, each well-appointed room includes a flat-screen cable TV
and DVD, wireless internet access, and daily delivery of The Brunswick
News, all at no additional cost. Design touches such as the art-glass
walls of the dining and rehabilitation rooms add a level of refinement
for a classic but functional approach.
The opportunity to move around the Center and interact with other patients
creates a very supportive environment which is a key to a positive outcome.
Individual therapy and group sessions are held in a large rehabilitation
room on the same floor; previously, patients had to go elsewhere in the
hospital for therapy services.
An expert care team
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center has a distinguished staff of board-certified
surgeons who are knowledgeable, experienced and trained in the latest
minimally invasive techniques, as well as a team of highly trained nurses
who specialize in orthopedic and spine patient care. The health care team
ensures that you understand your procedure and what you should expect
during the recovery process. After surgery, skilled physical and/or occupational
therapists will provide therapy designed to maximize function and hasten recovery.
