At the Saint Vincent Orthopaedics Institute our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, physicians, nurses, physician assistants and rehabilitation specialists work together to develop a coordinated treatment plan specifically designed for each patient. We believe this model of care leads to better outcomes for you and other patients.
Nationally recognized Orthopaedic care
Saint Vincent Hospital was recently named by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of 36 hospitals nationwide with the lowest rates of patient readmission following hip and knee replacement surgery. Saint Vincent Hospital was ranked 14th in the country and is the only hospital in western Pennsylvania to be included on the CMS list.
This recognition was made possible by the multidisciplinary team of orthopaedic providers at the hospital and the Orthopaedic Surgeons at Saint Vincent Orthopaedic Institute.
The Only Facility in Erie Offering Hip Preservation Surgery
Hip preservation surgery is a procedure designed to prevent or delay the onset of arthritis in active young adults and adults. This new surgical intervention provides long term relief from hip pain and can be done minimally invasively. Pain may present in a variety of ways, so if you have had prolonged back or hip pain, schedule an appointment to discuss your symptoms and see if hip preservation is right for you.
