Orthopedic Surgery at Ryan Hospital

Orthopedic Surgery

Penn Vet's Orthopedic Surgery Service at Ryan Hospital is a progressive, dynamic service that offers cutting-edge treatment for a variety of orthopedic conditions. The service performs the latest surgical treatments for joint conditions of the elbow, shoulders, hips and knees. 

These procedures range from minimally invasive arthroscopy to total joint replacement. We currently perform total hip replacement using both cemented and state-of-the-art cementless systems, depending on the needs of the patient.

Additionally, since our hospital's Emergency Service is one of the nation's most active, Orthopedic Surgery offers the latest systems for fracture repair, using plates, external skeletal fixation, and interlocking nails.
