Orthopedic spine surgery

Many adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. While most back pain lasts a few days or a few weeks, some will have chronic pain (pain that lasts more than 12 weeks).

We are home to some of the area's top spine surgeons who use the latest technology to treat spinal injuries and back pain. Our orthopedic surgery team assists in the diagnosis and treatment of back injuries, sciatica, disc herniation, scoliosis and other conditions causing you neck and back pain.

Pediatric orthopedics

If your child has a broken bone or orthopedic injury, we have experts in pediatric orthopedics at The Children's Hospital at TriStar Centennial in downtown Nashville. These specialized physicians treat a variety of conditions, including scoliosis and fractures.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation services

Proper therapy and rehabilitation is important to achieving the best results after orthopedic surgery. In addition, an orthopedic surgeon may recommend physical therapy as a nonsurgical treatment for certain conditions and injuries. Our experienced therapists offer comprehensive rehabilitation programs to help you regain your strength, restore your mobility and get you back to living your normal life after an orthopedic injury or surgery.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR)

TriStar Health participates in Medicare’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program, which promotes high quality, cost efficient, and better coordination of care for patients undergoing hip and knee replacement surgery. TriStar Health is working closely with its physicians and post-acute care providers to improve quality and coordinate care from the initial hospitalization through recovery. The CJR program permits facilities to enter into financial gainsharing relationships with its collaborators to share in the success of the program.
