Dedicated orthopedic facilities

It’s easy to find the orthopedic care you need close to home. With practice locations across the region, access to care is never far away. 

Our premier orthopedic centers offer the full spectrum of musculoskeletal services in one convenient location, including orthopedic, rheumatology, physiatry and pain management care.

Orthopedic Injury Centers

Coordinated Health, part of Lehigh Valley Health Network, offers the only orthopedic injury centers in the region for fast orthopedic care when you need it the most. Now, if you have an orthopedic injury, you can see orthopedic specialists without the wait.

With seven convenient locations throughout the region, award-winning care is available when you need it most. Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Back pain
  • Fractures/breaks
  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Strains
  • Sprains

Joint replacement surgery

Conditions like joint pain and osteoarthritis make it difficult for you to remain active. For some, nonsurgical treatments provide short-term relief. But if nonsurgical options aren’t working for you, our orthopedic team can help.

LVHN and Coordinated Health work to restore joint function using the latest surgical techniques. Our fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons perform more joint replacements than anyone else in the area, including same-day knee replacements, anterior hip replacements, total shoulder replacements and ankle reconstruction. This extensive knowledge means you recover from orthopedic surgery with the region’s most experienced team.

Sports medicine program

If you’ve been sidelined by a sports injury, we can help. We offer a comprehensive sports medicine program designed to get you back in the game. LVHN and Coordinated Health are trusted by the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the valley’s professional ice hockey team, the region’s only Division I athletic programs at Lafayette College and Lehigh University, and by numerous area high schools.

Our program ranges from surgical treatment of major injuries, such as rotator cuff or ACL tears, to rehabilitation, concussion management and strength, agility and conditioning training. We also offer cartilage preservation and restoration, as well as platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and other nonsurgical options for relieving joint pain and restoring function. No matter your physical fitness or abilities, our team of sports medicine doctors, physical therapists and trainers works together to deliver personalized care that helps athletes meet personal and competitive goals.

Advanced Spine Center

The Advanced Spine Center is a convenient service that helps people find the treatment they need for back pain relief, with or without surgery. Whether you need chiropractic, rehabilitation (physical therapy), physiatry, pain management or spine surgery, we provide the care you need for neck and back pain. When spine surgery is necessary, our team of orthopedic and neurosurgery spine specialists performs the most spine procedures in the region, consistently in the top five in the state and top 10% nationally for spine outcomes.

Orthopedic rehabilitation

Sometimes, recovering from injury or surgery requires close medical supervision and assistance. If you need extra help recovering from a bone, joint or sports injury, our orthopedic rehabilitation program helps you regain function and get back to life on your terms.
