Since 1837, The MetroHealth System has made significant contributions in the treatment of injury and disease. The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is a part of MetroHealth's legacy, providing leadership in the fields of musculoskeletal trauma, hand surgery, and the treatment of spinal disorders. We are proud of our history, and we are committed to the future of orthopaedic surgery. Our vision is to continue to provide excellent clinical care, serving as a model for other centers, and to engage in research and the development of emergent technology to help our patients reach new levels of function and recovery.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at MetroHealth provides a full range of musculoskeletal services, caring for more than 25,000 people, and performing approximately 3,000 procedures annually. Each surgeon is board certified and fellowship trained and is an expert in an area of orthopaedic subspecialty, including trauma, pediatrics, spine, or hand and upper extremity surgery.
The MetroHealth Department of Orthopaedics is equally dedicated to musculoskeletal education. We actively participate in residency training, including a partnership with the Case School of Medicine Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and other local programs. The department also sponsors fellowships in spine surgery, hand and upper extremity surgery, and traumatology.
Our Orthopaedic Learning Center (OLC) is a modern library, complete with textbooks, journals, Internet access, a multimedia presentation center, and other educational materials. Through the OLC, we have developed a unique Web-based system that delivers high-quality, professional educational materials to physicians.
