18 2020 HEALTH & WELLNESS GUIDE | THE VALLEY BREEZE | MARCH 2020 For patients coping with orthopedic injuries and conditions, the road to recovery can be challenging. That's why Ortho Rhode Island provides comprehensive orthopedic care every step of the way. Their experienced surgeons and specialists treat every orthopedic need, with a seamless continuum of care from diagnosis to rehabilitation. Ortho Rhode Island's comprehensive services include in-office x-ray and MRI, immediate injury care with Ortho RI Express, innovative treatments like robotic-assisted surgery, and in-house aftercare like physical and occupational therapy. The continuity and communication Ortho Rhode Island fosters can speed the recovery process to help patients return to work, play, and the daily activities that matter most. This collaborative, coordinated approach begins with diagnosis, and diagnosis often begins with Ortho Rhode Island's leading-edge imaging technology. Their digital x-rays are available in every office, and their technologists offer the latest MRI technology with spacious, patient-friendly imaging equipment on-site. These imaging capabilities are also a vital part of the Ortho RI Express service. Ortho RI Express delivers immediate care for orthopedic injuries like sprains, strains, fractures, and dislocations. With timely, same- and next-day appointments, patients can see experienced orthopedic specialists not found in urgent care or walk-in clinics, and avoid the long wait times and expensive copays of the ER. And because Ortho RI Express is part of a seamless continuum of care, follow-up and aftercare are coordinated among Ortho Rhode Island providers and are conveniently offered under one roof. Ortho Rhode Island is also proud to have a partnership in innovation with South County Health, a collaboration that empowers our experienced orthopedic surgeons to perform robotic-assisted procedures with greater precision, shorter recovery times, and better patient outcomes. Our surgical team has helped pioneer robotic-assisted knee and hip replacements in Rhode Island, and performed the state's first-ever robotic-assisted spine surgery utilizing ExcelsiusGPS navigation. For patients seeking non-operative treatment or rehabilitation after a surgical procedure, Ortho Rhode Island offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, and hand therapy. Through open communication and collaboration between their physicians and therapists, Ortho Rhode Island designs therapy programs unique to each patient's unique goals, age, and condition – all in one state-of-the-art facility. This close working relationship helps providers find therapies that maximize mobility and quality of life for patients. By offering continuous care from experienced specialists through every step of their return to health, Ortho Rhode Island ensures every patient can get back to what matters most.
