Our surgeons perform total joint replacements for knees, hips and shoulders, and incorporate minimally invasive techniques.

We are well regarded across the country for our trauma services. IU Health Methodist Hospital has orthopedic surgeons are solely dedicated to treating patients involved in traumatic accidents. This includes race car drivers around the country who are air-lifted to our hospital, as well as patients who come to IU Health Methodist Hospital through our ER due to other types of accidents. Our orthopedic surgeons frequently work with other disciplines when other injuries are present, and to facilitate follow-up care. The IU Health Methodist Hospital team also works with orthopedic surgeons on the teaching staff of IU School of Medicine.
