Inpatient rehabilitation

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

The orthopedic rehabilitation program at MedStar Health offers inpatient services that focus on restoring a patient’s highest level of function. A hallmark of the program is early intervention following injury or surgery, which helps ensure a speedier and more positive recovery.

We treat individuals with a variety of conditions, including:

  • Amputation (Learn more about Amputee Services)

  • Arthritis

  • Cancer surgery

  • Hip fracture surgery

  • Joint replacement surgery

  • Multiple orthopedic traumas

Before discharging a patient, we will recommend services the patient will need in order to transition to the next level of care. This might include outpatient services through MedStar Health Physical Therapy.

We also offer access to skilled nursing facilities and home care through the MedStar visiting nurse association. Our job is to build a roadmap for recovery and to provide support along the journey.
