In This Issue

Building Better Orthopaedic Care
Over the past few decades, the musculoskeletal program at MedStar Orthopaedic Institute has grown to become one of the most active in Maryland. Its group of more than 70 physicians treat tens of thousands of patients each year while also training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons through one of only three accredited programs in the state. 

Recovering from Cardiac Catheterization in Style
For decades, at nearly every hospital in the nation, cardiac catheterization for diagnostic or interventional procedures took place in a singular way: by threading the catheter through the femoral artery to the heart. The new Radial Recovery Lounge at MedStar Union Memorial provides VIP amenities to patients recovering form transradial catheterization. Learn more.

Getting Better Day by Day Through Inpatient Rehabilitation
The mission of the Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation (CIIR) Program at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital is to bring quality to the lives of patients with cognitive and functional limitations. In partnership with MedStar National Rehabilitation Network, our interdisciplinary treatment team focuses on patients’ capabilities, rather than disabilities. This positive approach allows our rehabilitation professionals to help patients return to their highest levels of independence. Learn more.

New Focus on Urologic Oncology
The Medstar Health Cancer Network recently launched the division of Urologic Oncology, offering patients a new collection of leading edge treatments. Learn more.
