Mount Nittany Health performs a variety of orthopedic procedures, including joint replacements, at two surgical facilities to ensure that you get the best possible care in our sophisticated operating suites.
Mount Nittany Medical Center is where joint replacements—knee, hip and shoulder—are performed, in one of our state-of-the-art operating suites.
Mount Nittany Surgical Center is where all other orthopedic surgeries—including knee and shoulder arthroscopies, ACL repairs, carpal tunnel correction and trigger finger correction—are performed.
In addition to surgical services, Mount Nittany Medical Center's Orthopedic Program provides pre- and post-operative educational sessions about joint replacement procedures to make sure that you are prepared for surgery and rehabilitation.
Our popular program, A Joint Venture, shares practical tips to make your joint replacement experience as seamless as possible—from pre-surgery considerations to safely navigating post-surgery activities to how to carefully perform in-home exercises to aid in your rehabilitation.
The Orthotics Department coordinates and participates in the examination and evaluation of patient needs for devices to support or immobilize affected limbs. This department oversees the design and fabrication of orthotic devices.
Working from a prescription by a physician, our certified orthotist creates devices to support weakened body parts as well as correct body impairments caused by or related to conditions such as cerebral palsy, diabetes, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, malformation of bones, spinal cord injuries and musculo-skeletal injuries.
