Our approach to care

Our team consists of orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical and occupational therapists and social workers. We specifically designed our orthopedic unit with a home-like atmosphere to make patients feel more comfortable during recovery. We offer larger rooms and satellite nursing stations so our nurses have more time to spend with each patient who requires around-the-clock nursing care.

Our experts have an emphasis on the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Joint replacement
  • Shoulders and rotator cuffs
  • Sports injury corrections
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Broken hip
  • Knee repair

Emergency Orthopaedic Services

Many of our orthopaedic patients come to Lynchburg General Hospital through our regional emergency department. In addition to walk-in and patients brought by ambulance from the greater Lynchburg area, we receive patients from outlying hospitals not equipped to handle orthopaedic emergencies.


Our Surgical Unit

Lynchburg General Hospital's orthopaedic operating room is available 24 hours a day, year round, to handle a wide range of orthopaedic surgeries.
