The St. Luke's Cornwall Orthopedics Community is dedicated to providing for the comprehensive orthopedic needs of the Hudson Valley. In conjunction with primary care and orthopedic physicians, the SLC Orthopedics Community uses a team approach to diagnose, treat and alleviate joint pain. Restoring quality of life for residents of the Hudson Valley region is the goal. Conditions such as arthritis can lead to more severe orthopedic problems and require joint replacement. St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital and your physician are committed to providing you with the highest quality care in a cost effective manner. The hospital and your physician have entered into an agreement that provides your physician a financial incentive to use vendors who have high quality, FDA approved implantable devices and surgical fixation devices. If you would like more information about this initiative, please contact your physician. To learn about joint replacement at SLCH, please visit the Center for Joint Replacement.
Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness, treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. Many commons sports injuries can be treated non-surgically through physical therapy or minimally invasive outpatient procedures. Some common sports injuries include: contusion, sprains or tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), ankle, elbow and shoulder sprains and knee dislocation.
Foot and Ankle
Pain of the foot and ankle can be caused by sports injuries, trauma-related fractures, bunions and Achilles tendon disorders. Pain can also be caused by arthritis and could lead to arthroscopic ankle surgery or ankle replacements.
Foot and ankle disorders can also apply to children and orthopedic specialists at SLCH can address common pediatric foot and ankle conditions, such as clubfoot or flat feet.
Orthopedic specialists at SLCH address surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions or problems that take place in the hand or upper extremities (tip of the hand to the shoulder). Various causes of hand pain include infection, traumatic injury, carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis.
