Orthopaedic Care

BIDMC provides joint evaluation orthopaedic care for over 400 patients each year. Our services include joint replacement as well as repair. When choosing a hospital, patients in need of orthopaedic care should consider the hospital's experience with the surgery, patient outcomes, patients' experiences with care, and the efficiency of care.
