Orthopedics/Physical Therapy

Rockford Memorial Hospital is the regional leader in surgery, with more than 11,000 inpatient and outpatient procedures performed each year. That experience translates into the top orthopedic surgery program in the region.

RMH enjoys strong relationships with Rockford Orthopedic Associates (ROA), and the Rockford Spine Center, the region’s two leading orthopedic surgery groups.

Orthopedic surgeons on our medical staff offer a wide variety of specialties, including:

  • Arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery;
  • Hand and shoulder surgery;
  • Joint replacement;
  • Neck and spine surgery;
  • Orthopedic trauma surgery; and
  • Sports medicine.

Two surgical suites specially designed for orthopedic procedures provide surgeons and patients with the latest in state-of-the-art equipment and technology. These suites allow surgeons to perform everything from simple procedures to the most complex joint replacement surgeries.

Rapid recovery joint replacement (RRJR) is now offered at RMH. RRJR is a program of best practices that speed mobility following total joint replacement surgery - to achieve better patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction ratings. The change is holistic, representing a philosophical shift that extends beyond hip or knee replacement surgical techniques into forging a partnership with the patient and his or her care team to speed the return to activities of daily life.
