Managing Injury

When you are injured, you don’t have time to sit on the sidelines. The Sports Medicine program at NEBH offers patients a complete experience where all of their needs can be met in one place, from physician consultations to imaging, surgery, and rehabilitation.

Many orthopedic conditions can be treated without surgery. However, when you and your doctor decide that surgery is the best option, you want to go to the hospital that performs more orthopedic surgical procedures than any other hospital in New England.

NEBH is focused solely around the needs of orthopedic patients. Dedicated sports medicine specialists are available to support you as you prepare for, undergo and recover from your surgery.

Contributing to our expertise in orthopedics is the fact that we’re pioneers in patient safety. Patient safety is in our history and a part of our culture. All hospitals are monitored for potential safety issues like infection, surgical errors, hygiene, skin breakdown and patient falls. You should know that regardless of the issue, New England Baptist Hospital maintains superior rankings above national norms on every criteria measured.
