Freedom of movement is one of the pleasures of good health. Whether it is simply the joy of taking a walk, picking up a child or running a marathon, mobility is key to quality of life. This advanced medical resource unites experts and technology to provide complete care from diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal disease and injury, including care and treatment of joints, back and spine, as well as sports-related conditions.
In the care of motion-limiting conditions, technology can make a world of difference. Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center houses the latest diagnostic imaging tools available. Our all-digital equipment includes the latest MRI, CT scanner, digital x-ray technology and more. With remarkable precision, this technology pinpoints problems and can speed results to physicians via computers. Such fast, high-quality images often yield a quicker diagnosis, so treatment and recovery can begin sooner.
Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center houses “smart” operating rooms. These surgical suites combine sophisticated equipment along with environmental efficiencies which help shorten surgical procedures and help patients begin recovery and rehabilitation sooner. Our surgeons have the latest computer-assisted equipment which allows for the most precise accuracy in knee-replacement surgery. Arthroscopic surgery, another minimally invasive technique, involves inserting tiny instruments through very small incisions. Minimally invasive procedures greatly shorten recovery times and speed rehabilitation.
When your treatment requires an inpatient stay, expect an experience that exceeds your highest expectations. Our new facility includes attractively decorated, all-private rooms designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. An in-room sleeper sofa enables a family member to comfortably spend the night. Our GetWellNetwork provides you and your guests with Internet access, movies on demand and educational information about your specific health needs.
In addition to our outstanding team of nurses, Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center is staffed by board certified physicians. Within the Orthopedics Services area, our dedicated orthopaedic are skilled in the repair of knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows, as well as total joint replacement. Our specialists also correct spinal problems with spinal fusions, disc repair and replacement. Our surgeons are supported by a specialized team of hospital-based physicians who provide continuous care during your stay.
For post-surgical or outpatient rehabilitation, we offer registered physical and occupational therapists, including hand therapists. These therapists deliver expert care on site at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center. Our therapists are specially trained to treat sports and orthopaedic injuries. When your physician determines that your recovery can best be accomplished at home, Sentara Home Care Services offers a compassionate team of experts to provide ongoing physical and occupational therapy in the familiarity and comfort of your own home.
Regularly scheduled pre-surgery workshops inform you of what to expect during and after your surgery. We also offer group exercise, aquatics, and fitness classes and programs designed to meet the needs of various ages and fitness levels at the YMCA. These specially designed programs will keep you feeling good long after your surgery.
