What is Orthopedics?

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.


Blue Distinction Center+ Knee/Hip

If you have knee or hip pain, sometimes your best treatment option is joint replacement. As a Blue Distinction® Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement, our surgeons and staff are trained and ready for that too. These Centers are acute inpatient healthcare facilities with demonstrated expertise and a commitment to quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients.

If you are active in sports or just a weekend warrior, you might experience aches and pains or even more serious acute injuries, such as muscle strains or tendon injuries. Common sports injuries include sprained ankles, knee or low-back pain, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and golf or tennis elbow. Learn about common injuries, and listen to your body. With pain or a suspected injury, seek medical attention with one of our sports medicine specialists.
