Outpatient Orthopedic Care
Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system, which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves.
Centered on exceptional, compassionate care, we at Woman's are dedicated to ensuring that our patients receive the diagnosis, treatments and therapies they deserve and find freedom from their pain and suffering.
Talk to your physician if you experience:
- Pain or stiffness that limits your everyday activities
- Aching and stiffness, especially in the morning or after periods of inactivity
- Pain that keeps you awake at night, or continues even when resting
- Little or no relief from medications
The orthopedic surgeons at Woman's Hospital treat many musculoskeletal conditions without surgery via medication, exercise and other therapies. However, when surgery is the best option, patients can trust Woman's team of orthopedic specialists. Once the operation is complete, our multidisciplinary team guides patients to full orthopedic recovery.
Woman's offers convenient outpatient orthopedic surgery designed to allow patients to return to their busy lives as soon as possible. Woman's orthopedic specialists treat a range of musculoskeletal problems, including foot, ankle, hand, wrist, elbow, back and neck.
Woman's multidisciplinary approach enables patients to receive care tailored to their specific needs to achieve the best possible outcome. We offer a number of fitness programs and personal trainers to help patients regain strength, balance and endurance, as well as nutrition counseling to improve overall wellbeing.
We work closely with the department of physical therapy, which offers a full spectrum of therapy options to speed and improve recovery. Woman's is also proud to be the only hospital in Baton Rouge offering aquatic therapy, where water reduces stress on joints and increases ease of movement, greatly broadening patients' therapy possibilities.
