Comprehensive Orthopedic Care
Our patients receive expert care to prevent and treat all types of bone
and muscle conditions. Specialty-trained orthopedic surgeons and rehabilitation
medicine physicians provide excellent outcomes and help patients return
to their activities. Our orthopedic physicians at Lower Bucks Hospital
treat patients from around the Philadelphia region for simple to complex
sports and accident-related injuries as well as the painful effects of
many conditions that limit your mobility and cause pain.
Our goal is simple: to help you regain freedom and mobility.
Most of us move our bodies without a second thought; we walk, run, lift,
bend and play without ever thinking about it—until an injury or
illness limits us in some way. The seemingly “effortless”
movement of our bodies actually relies on a complex set of coordinated
systems with your musculoskeletal system—your body’s bones,
muscles, joints, ligaments, cartilage, tendons and connective tissue—giving
your body its form and stability, as well as movement.
