Co-located and undergoing renovations simultaneously, the Brigham and Women’s Orthopedic Center and Brigham and Women’s Comprehensive Spine Center offer state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient care for thousands of patients annually to address orthopedic diseases and injuries of the bones and joints of the arms, legs, and spine, as well as nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
Recent advances in technology have ushered in a wide array of new orthopedic and spine treatment options, including innovative minimally invasive techniques, advanced computerized tools for more precise surgical navigation, and high-tech arthroscopic instrumentation.
Occupying space over three floors of the hospital, these centers have undergone a major renovation to include the latest technologies and most comfortable, healing settings possible, and feature an outpatient unit, a new 24-bed inpatient unit, and renovated operating rooms.
The Orthopedic and Spine Centers’ ambulatory suite, which opened in July 2014, builds upon the hospital’s proven expertise in caring for a wide range of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries. Through several specialty clinics and a space that features 25 examination rooms, clinician offices, waiting areas, and occupational therapy, the outpatient unit is expected to accommodate 15,000 patient visits annually. The unit houses the following programs:
In September 2014, BWFH opened a newly renovated orthopedic operating suite, which includes four dedicated operating rooms equipped for orthopedic surgeries. Surgeons conduct specialized inpatient and outpatient procedures, including knee and hip replacements and joint replacements of the hands and upper extremities. The operating rooms are outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, new perioperative monitors, anesthesia machines, and specialized airflow systems designed to direct airflow away from patients to reduce infection risks. We expect that as many as 3,000 orthopedic patients each year will be cared for in these advanced facilities, with thousands more family members visiting the center.
Slated for a fall 2015 completion, the renovated orthopedic inpatient unit will be designed to fulfill the specialized needs of orthopedic and spine patients, while accommodating their family members. Every aspect of the unit will foster healing, hope, and recovery. In addition to 24 private patient rooms, the unit will include:
