In 2016, the Joint and Spine Care Center performed 1,379 orthopedic surgeries, representing 28 percent of all surgery categories performed at Bay Area Hospital that year. Included in those surgeries, among others, were:
- Total shoulder procedures: 42
- Total hip procedures: 99
- Total knee procedures: 224
- Spinal procedures: 136
With the aging of the baby boomer population, the hospital anticipates an even greater demand for its orthopaedic services in the future. That’s why we’re offering pre-surgery classes for patients, why we’re continuing to invest in cutting-edge technology, why we’ve formed a Joint and Spine Team, and why we have implemented a Joint Replacement Destination Center.
