Orthopaedic Surgery

Find out how to prepare for surgery.

Our collaborative approach to surgery ensures patients' needs are met through every step of their surgical experience. With over twenty orthopaedic surgeons practicing at The Orthopaedic Institute, many of whom are subspecialized, we are able to care for and treat a variety of complex orthopaedic issues. With experts in total joint replacement surgery, spine surgery, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery, orthopaedic trauma and pediatric orthopaedics, The Orthopaedic Institute is a regional center of excellence providing nationally recognized care to residents of New Hampshire and beyond.

Outpatient Orthopaedic Surgery

Patients needing orthopaedic procedures on an outpatient (ambulatory) basis have several options to choose from including:

  • Concord Hospital Day Surgery Center;
  • Capital Orthopaedic Surgery Center, a joint venture with Concord Hospital;
  • Concord Ambulatory Surgery Center, a joint venture with Concord Hospital.

Pre- Surgical Testing Program

Presurgical testing involves specialized medical testing and planning in advance of surgery to assist with limiting complications, particularly infection. Our program uses a multidisciplinary approach that includes our surgeons and anesthesia staff, as well as your primary care provider. The program ensures your care team is well-informed about your specific needs.

Total Joint Replacement Surgery

More than 1,000 total joint replacements are performed each year at The Orthopaedic Institute. Total knee and total hip replacement surgery is performed by specialized, dedicated teams in our operating suite. Patients benefit from the latest in equipment and computer-assisted technology. Since 2008, surgeons at The Orthopaedic Institute have been performing the anterior, muscle sparing approach to hip replacement in addition to more traditional approaches. A specialized operating room table and x-ray guidance enables surgeons to access the hip from the front, instead of the side or back, allowing for more precise placement of implants without the need to cut muscle. Patients at The Orthopaedic Institute having an anterior hip replacement typically experience:

  • Shorter lengths of stay;
  • Less need for physical therapy;
  • Fewer restrictions on movement and activities post surgery;
  • Lower risk of dislocating the new joint;
  • Shorter recovery times and quicker return to daily routines.

Spine Surgery

The Orthopaedic Institute specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of spine disorders. Treatment may involve nonsurgical option such as physical therapy, medications, braces, injections and education. Many surgical options are available including minimally invasive approaches, all performed by specially trained teams in the operating room.
