Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute’s focus areas include orthopedics (including orthopedic trauma, pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine), chiropractic care, podiatry, pain management and physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatry).
“The combined talent of two award-winning health care groups boasts the highest orthopedic success rates in the region, and people in the communities we serve will reap the benefits of unparalleled excellence and access,” said Robert X. Murphy Jr., MD, MS, Executive Vice President and Chief Physician Executive, LVHN. “We are leading the way in joint replacement surgery with the latest technologies for better outcomes.”
“Collaboration, research and education fostered by an institute are vital to continued quality and leading-edge care. Orthopedics is a fast-growing, highly specialized field, treating everything from arthritis to joint replacement to complex spinal problems. Expert surgical and nonsurgical care for the bones, muscles, joints and other parts of our complex musculoskeletal system is essential to living life to the fullest,” Nester said.
The Orthopedic Institute also will partner with affiliated independent orthopedic groups to ensure LVHN offers more choice, more locations, more access and more patient-focused programs to serve everyone’s needs.
Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute is the fourth institute under LVHN, joining Lehigh Valley Heart and Vascular Institute, Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute and Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence.
