Orthopaedics and Spine at UPMC Horizon
The expertise of orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physical and rehabilitation specialists, and pain management specialists are available to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program at both UPMC Horizon campuses.
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are offered to treat a number of conditions, including joint pain, back pain, cervical disc disease, ruptured or herniated discs, spinal compression fractures related to osteoporosis, degenerative disc or joint disease, spinal stenosis, traumatic spine or joint injuries, congenital spine deformities, carpal tunnel pain, and nerve entrapment or compression.
The inpatient orthopaedics units at both UPMC Horizon campuses are designed to guide patients from their initial physician office visit to their post-operative care. A liaison first meets with the patient in the physician’s office and helps the patient navigate through the system, offering information on pre-operative testing, pre- and post-operative education, and family needs, as well as a tour of the unit.
After surgery, patients have access to physical therapy and rehabilitation programs offered at both the Greenville and Shenango Valley campuses. The UPMC Horizon Pain Management Center, also located at both campuses, offers an array of pain-control options including epidural injections, nerve block injections, acupuncture, neurostimulation, and pain pumps.
