Orthopedics

Rumford Hospital Offers Orthopaedic Services

Rumford Hospital hosts an orthopaedics service for patients of all ages. Healthcare providers from Central Maine Orthopaedics are at Rumford Hospital Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Orthopaedics deals with the musculoskeletal system, including bones, muscles, joints and ligaments. Orthopedic surgeons treat trauma to the musculoskeletal system (such as broken bones), infections, sports-related injuries, congenital disorders, degenerative diseases and growths/tumors. Treatments may include surgery and physical or occupational therapy.

Orthopedics has many sub-specialties, so patients may be referred to a doctor who specializes in one area of the body or a particular patient population. Specialties include pediatrics, hands, shoulders, elbows, spine, joint replacement, ankles and feet.

For patients recovering from orthopaedic injury and/or surgery, Rumford Hospital has a comprehensive therapy services department.
