Orthopedic Services

Bone and joint conditions can make even simple activities like walking or climbing stairs a challenge. At Portsmouth Regional Hospital, we help eliminate your pain and get you back to doing what you enjoy as quickly as possible.

Your Best Choice in the Seacoast Region for Orthopedic Care

When you choose the orthopedic specialists who work with us at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, you'll find skilled and experienced surgeons and quality of care recognized by a national accrediting organization, as well as the personalized attention of a hospital close to home.

Our Total Joint Replacement Program was the first in the Seacoast region to receive The Joint Commission's certification and Gold Seal of Approval® for hip and knee replacement, which means you're assured of receiving appropriate, evidence-based care that meets national standards. Our skilled specialists provide comprehensive outpatient and inpatient treatment for diverse and complex orthopedic disorders, including conditions of the knee, hip, ankle, foot, hand, arm and shoulder, whether resulting from injury, trauma, congenital conditions or overuse.

Comprehensive Approach. Customized Treatment.

You benefit from our comprehensive approach to prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions in children and adults of all ages. To help you regain pain-free function, we:

  • Diagnose your situation precisely using the latest digital imaging tools
  • Deliver effective treatment customized for you
  • Provide an innovative combination of rehab therapies and medically supervised fitness training
  • Support your rehabilitation and recovery with appropriate pain management strategies

Advanced Technology & Expert Care

The advanced imaging capabilities at Portsmouth Regional Hospital—including 3-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the latest X-ray technology and 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scanning—means your doctors can pinpoint damage to bones, joints and soft tissue, improving the precision of both diagnosis and treatment.

When you need orthopedic surgery, our experienced, board-certified surgeons determine the best approach and perform your operation using advanced technology and techniques. We offer total joint and minimally invasive procedures, including the direct anterior hip procedure, for joint replacement and reconstruction.

In every situation, we focus on safely and rapidly restoring comfort and mobility. Our minimally invasive techniques typically result in smaller incisions, reduced levels of anesthesia, less blood loss and faster recovery, which often means you can be discharged directly home rather than spend additional days or weeks at a special inpatient rehab facility.
