About Us

Offering advanced orthopedic procedures including anterior approach hip replacement and hand surgery, our team focuses on providing the best care possible for each patient. Working closely with providers throughout Altru allows for comprehensive care from your first visit through recovery.

In late summer 2015, Altru Orthopedics & Sports Medicine moved into a new location at Altru Professional Center. This move means more convenient care for our patients, as we are in close proximity to complementary services, such as Podiatry, and Altru Specialty Center, where all orthopedic procedures are done. This clinic space offers a new rooming process available to patients that allows for shorter wait times and more efficient visits.

Quality of Care

At Altru, we demonstrate quality through compassionate and individualized care. We will get you moving again as quickly, safely and painlessly as possible.

Hip Replacement Ranked Among the Best

Altru Health System has been ranked as one of the best hospitals for hip replacement by U.S. News and World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. Altru Orthopedics & Sports Medicine demonstrated success in minimizing infections and preventing unplanned returns of hip-replacement patients to the hospital within seven days of discharge.

After analyzing over 5,000 hospitals in 2014 to find the best in the nation, U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals ranked only 11 percent of hospitals as high performing and exceeding standards of care in the area of hip replacement.
