Surgery

A wide range of orthopedic surgeries are performed every day at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and the West Tennessee Surgery Center. Orthopedic surgeries include knee and hip replacements; arthroscopic surgery of the knee, hip, wrist, and ankle; shoulder replacement; ACL repair or replacement; rotator cuff repair; fracture repair; and hand surgery.

The orthopedic surgery department is proud to make the latest technology in surgical services available to the people of West Tennessee. The physicians and staff utilize state of the art navigation equipment for knee replacement procedures allowing for extremely precise measuring and fitting of knee hardware. Specialized operating room tables are available to aid in the repair of hip fractures. Advanced digital video equipment used for arthroscopic procedures make surgery a successful and safe option for our patients.

The NAVIO® robotic surgery system enables surgeons to perform partial knee replacements instead of entire knee replacements—a welcome option for patients whose knee deterioration is limited to a single area.
