The CMH Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine provides consultation and care for the full spectrum of adult and children’s orthopedic conditions. We understand how frustrating it can be to have your life interrupted by an injury or persistent joint pain. CMH’s highly-trained orthopedic surgeons, physician assistants, and other caregivers are committed to helping you return to your daily and sporting activities as quickly and safely as possible.
During your initial evaluation at the CMH Center & Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we will take the time to understand the types and levels of activities that are important to you. We will discuss all of the potential treatment options that may be best for your particular injury or condition, which may include non-surgical options such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and strength training. If surgery is the recommended course of treatment, we will thoroughly explain the procedure and provide you with all of the details you need to know, including what you can expect during your recovery.
Q: I’ve been scheduled for surgery, what should I do now?click to open
A: When your doctor schedules you for a surgery or out-patient procedure at CMH, you’ll benefit from state-of-the-art operating rooms; our excellent nursing and surgery caregivers; the comfortable private rooms; and our patient-centered focus.
After your surgery or procedure has been scheduled, you will be directed to visit the pre-admission testing nurse or asked to leave your phone number for a call back. This service allows you to complete all pre-operative procedures you may need (lab tests, x-rays, EKG, etc.), to ask questions and to learn more about recovery. The pre-admission testing nurse can be reached at 503-338-7516.
Both same day procedures and in-patient surgeries are done in the main hospital. We will call you the day before your surgery (usually 2-4pm) to let you know what time you should arrive at the hospital the next day.
