The goal of the Franciscan Healthcare Orthopedics Department is to provide the highest quality services to the Coulee Region and surrounding communities. Our highly skilled staff provides comprehensive evaluations to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems. The musculoskeletal system includes bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

Our services
Our orthopedic surgeons provide an extensive array of surgical services including:

  • Joint replacement
  • Arthroscopic procedures
  • Fracture care
  • Sports medicine
  • Emergency, trauma and fracture care
  • Hand and upper extremity surgery

What to expect at an appointment
When you arrive for an appointment, you will first register with our reception staff. A medical assistant will call you back into the department and gather pertinent health information regarding your visit. A registered nurse will work with the provider to assist with any procedures (i.e., splinting, casting and wound care management). An Orthopedics Scheduler is available to assist with scheduling patients for surgery and referrals to primary care for a pre-operative workup.
