Since conditions affecting the foot or ankle can impact a patient’s mobility, our team helps assure that when patients come to us for treatment, they receive the best medical care to help them to return to an active and independent lifestyle. Podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons at Southwest General offer state-of- the-art procedures and treatments to help patients overcome the effects of traumatic injuries, disease and neuromuscular disorders.

Hand and Upper Extremity

Our Hand and Upper Extremity services focus on treatment for a wide range of conditions. Whether the conditions originate from trauma, disease or the aging process, our orthopedic team is skilled in reconstructive procedures and treatments to help improve function.

Joint Replacement and Reconstruction

As a leader in joint replacement and reconstruction services, our Orthopedic Joint Center has been recognized for its high level of quality and cost-efficient delivery of care. This recognition includes being named a UnitedHealth Premium Total Joint Specialty Center by United Health Group and a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement by Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Our Joint Center’s focus on knee and hip replacements results in a high level of quality care, with most patients returning home within three days of surgery. From the moment patients enter our facility and throughout their stay, our goal is to help them quickly attain a full recovery with the best outcomes possible.

Additionally, Southwest General provides care for many other conditions for which surgical intervention may be the best course of action to help patients regain active and healthy lives. This includes patients who have older orthopedic joint implants that need to be replaced or modified due to wear, structural fatigue or changes in their personal anatomy. For these patients, our highly skilled orthopedic surgeons perform a variety of procedures to restore joint function and quality of life.


Our spine care services focus on diagnosis and treatment of disorders ranging from herniated discs to more complex conditions caused by trauma, disease or congenital disorders.
