Orthopedics is the medical specialty that involves treatment of your musculoskeletal system – your bones, spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues. Access to high-quality orthopedic care can directly affect your quality of life and impact things you want to do – whether it’s running, golfing or hiking. At Cullman Regional, you’ll find a broad range of diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation services to help you return to life and living. With a highly skilled team of orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, surgery and nursing professionals, and rehabilitation therapists, you’ll find comprehensive care and recovery for your orthopedic issues. We provide treatment for injuries and trauma, arthritis, joint replacement and other surgeries, rehabilitation, sports medicine and more.

A sampling of the inpatient and outpatient orthopedic services we provide includes:

  • Arthritis treatment
  • Foot and ankle care
  • Fracture care
  • Hand, wrist and upper extremity care
  • Inpatient and outpatient surgery
  • Joint replacement of hip, knee or shoulder
  • Spine care
  • Sports medicine
  • Therapy and rehabilitation


Our physicians and specialists work collaboratively with hospital team members in diagnostic imaging, nursing, surgery and rehabilitation services to recognize and treat your distinctive needs and to support you from diagnosis through recovery. We use the latest techniques and technology to improve care for those with musculoskeletal problems. Because every patient has unique needs, our team carefully tailors each treatment plan to the individual. Our goal remains the same for everyone, though — to eliminate or minimize pain and restore the highest level of function and independence possible for each patient.
