Becker’s Hospital Review has named UVA Health Orthopedics to its 2023 list of 100 hospitals and health systems with great orthopedic programs.
“These programs are committed to providing exceptional orthopedic care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions or injuries,” the editors of the national healthcare publication write in introducing this year’s list. “The programs on this list treat a high volume of patients each year, offer access to various clinical trials and utilize the most innovative technologies available.
Becker’s described UVA Health Orthopedics – which saw 200,000 patient visits and performed 10,000 surgeries this past fiscal year, according to the publication – as “a leader in orthopedic clinical care and musculoskeletal research, providing state-of- the-art, comprehensive and cost-effective care to patients with orthopedic disorders.”
The publication highlighted the program’s total hip and knee replacement services, noting that UVA Health performs more than 1,000 joint replacements annually. Becker’s also spotlighted the UVA Health Spine Center, where orthopedic surgeons partner with UVA Health neurosurgeons to perform more than 1,500 spine procedures every year. The publication also highlighted the sports medicine team, which serves as team physicians for both the University of Virginia and James Madison University athletics teams, as well as several high schools in the area.
