There are not many procedures that can improve quality of life the way orthopedic surgery can. At St. Mary Medical Center, we take a comprehensive approach to care and rehabilitation, addressing both the pre and post care aspects of well being. Rehabilitation is a medical specialty that helps restore people affected by disabling disease or traumatic injury to good health and functional, productive lives. Rehabilitation can be the difference between patients returning home instead of going to long-term care. An individualized treatment program is developed for each patient based on an extensive evaluation at the time of admission. After surgery, our patients benefit from in-hospital Acute Rehabilitation and on-site physical therapy sessions before continuing on their road to wellness through our Home Health and Outpatient Rehabilitation programs.

We offer a full range of therapy for all types of acute and chronic conditions:
