Other Bone and Joint Disorders
Like the rest of our bodies, bones and joints are subject to infection and disease. At Wellmont’s hospitals, we use the latest technology to diagnose and treat these infections. Sometimes, we can treat bone infections (osteomyelitis) and joint infections (septic arthritis) with antibiotics. If you do require surgery, however, our skilled orthopedic surgeons stand ready.
For patients with bone cancer or diabetics with complex bone disorders, a uniquely qualified orthopedic oncologist is available to offer you the very best care.
If you have questions, please call the Wellmont Nurse Connection at 1-877-230-NURSE.
