Seeing You Safely
Don't put your health on hold—see us safely. Dr. Moskal shares an inside view of what we are doing to maintain our high level of care, with proper protections in place for our patients and employees.
The joint replacement program at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital is the first in southwest Virginia to earn the advanced-level certification for hip and knee joint replacement surgeries from The Joint Commission. They first earned the accreditation back in 2007. This new designation goes beyond the core requirements, with additional clinical requirements of achieving consistent communication and collaboration among all health care providers involved in the care of the patient.
Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement
With advanced imaging technology enabling computer-assisted techniques, surgeons perform anterior-approach hip replacements with increased accuracy and precision. Anterior-approach hip replacement is an innovative technique that uses an incision on the front of the body, rather than the side or back as with traditional hip replacement surgery. This brings less disruption to muscle and tissues, resulting in less pain, a lower risk of complications and a quicker recovery.
Carilion Clinic’s orthopaedic surgery team provides treatments for hip pain with the goal of decreasing pain, slowing the progression of degenerative hip disease and restoring normal hip function. This early intervention should reduce the risk for premature arthritis and hip replacement surgery later in life. Athletes who use repetitive motions in the hip joint, such as dancers or adults who were diagnosed with hip dysplasia as children, are candidates for hip preservation procedures.
Carilion Clinic's Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences (ION) is an innovative convergence of leading medical practitioners who provide expert care to patients. It serves as a model for medical students, research fellows and residents—the next generation of providers. ION provides a shared vision of collaboration and a team-based approach to healing.
The Orthopaedic Department provides fellowship training for surgeons from across the United States to help them provide better care.
