Treatment for Your Bones and Joints

When you are facing aches and pains from daily activities that prevent you from pursuing your normal lifestyle, it may be time to consider a visit to an orthopedic specialist. Two orthopedic specialists see patients in the convenient GCMH Specialty Clinic and perform both outpatient and inpatient procedures in our state-of-the-art Surgery Department, where state-of-the-art infection control means a low, low infection rate.

A signature service, our orthopedic program features a team approach for the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseases and conditions affecting the bones and joints. National recognition for Patient Experience has consistently placed GCMH Outpatient Services among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide-- which means you'll immediately sense the special attention and care from our entire team - from the moment you register for your visit to the radiology, nursing, and surgery professionals who will care for you. 


With high standards for orthopedic care, GCMH offers experienced physicians and nursing staff. Dr. Douglas Cooper and Dr. Robert Bartelt offer a wide array of services. Our surgical team is proficient in joint replacement surgeries and other orthopedic treatments.


Our team includes therapists with specialized training in orthopedic rehabilitation, and nurses with experience in orthopedic care. Complications can arise from post-surgery infections, and at GCMH we work hard to maintain an extremely low infection rate for joint replacement surgery.


The inpatient area at GCMH offers spacious and comfortable rooms, a therapy area designed for orthopedic rehabilitation, and varied menu offerings that let you select your meals daily from among many tasty choices.
