Foot and Ankle Reconstruction

Foot and ankle reconstruction as well as all levels of foot and ankle pain, and complex foot and ankle disorders. Mercy’s foot and ankle doctors are focused on a singular goal: to restore, rebuild, re-stabilize or reconstruct a patient’s foot so that mobility is natural, pain is minimal and the ability to walk is seemingly effortless.

Orthopedics and Joint Replacement

Joint replacement and general orthopedic and bone disorders ranging from ligament stress to hip and knee replacement. Orthopedic and bone disorders are among some of the most common problems experienced by adults approaching or in the “empty nest” stage of their lives. Regaining an active and healthy lifestyle or getting control of nagging aches and pains so that day-to-day responsibilities are manageable are typical reasons patients schedule appointments. 

Mercy’s orthopedic doctors who specialize in bone and joint disorders are specifically trained to help patients overcome these obstacles – sometimes through a physical therapy and medication program, and sometimes through joint replacement surgery.

Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Conditions

Shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand injuries, sprains, tears, and on-going degenerative complications. Upper extremity problems or issues with your shoulder, elbow, hand or wrist may be caused by years of over activity or a weekend of overdoing everyday chores. Collaboration among our orthopedic team of doctors about complex and routine upper extremity cases require them to explore precise diagnostic evaluations, effective treatment plans and the best available surgical solutions.

Spine Conditions

Spine deformities, back pain and other complications associated with the spinal cord. At Mercy, our spine surgeons recognize treating injuries, deformities and complications associated with the spine require exacting technique, in-depth knowledge as well as delicate, yet demanding surgical solutions.
