In 2015, the Joint and Spine Care Center performed 1,224 orthopaedic surgeries, representing 26 percent of all surgery categories performed at Bay Area Hospital that year. They included:
- Total shoulder procedures: 21
- Total hip procedures: 97
- Total knee procedures: 210
- Spinal procedures: 144
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 more 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’re actively pursuing certification of both our hip and knee replacement programs from the Joint Commission.
