knee-hipIndian River Medical Center’s nationally acclaimed orthopedic program performs 1,200 total joint hip, knee and shoulder surgeries and spine surgeries per year.

Over a dozen orthopedic surgeons specializing in general orthopedics, sports, spine and hand surgery operate on patients using the latest surgical techniques. Our recently renovated Orthopedic Unit, which features private rooms specially created to meet the specific needs of orthopedic patients, cared for over 1,900 patients last year.

Orthopedic Unit

All orthopedic surgical patients recover and rehabilitate in the Orthopedic Unit located on the hospital’s 5th floor.

This newly designed unit houses 23 private rooms and is supported by two nursing stations, kitchens, and two computer medication dispensers and supply areas. The large rooms provide easy access for patients using walkers and wheelchairs.

The Orthopedic Unit is a ‘clean floor,’ which means that no patients with infections are permitted in this unit. This important factor prevents the spread of infection and critically assists wound healing.
