Orthopedic Medicine | Conditions and Treatment Overview

Our unwavering dedication to helping patients experience an improved quality of life is what motivates us to stay up-to-date on the latest orthopedic techniques and innovative treatment methods. From non-surgical treatments to minimally invasive procedures designed to repair injuries, we provide orthopedic treatment options for residents and snow-birds alike in Wickenburg, AZ, Congress, AZ, Wittmann, AZ, Aguila, AZ, Wenden, AZ, Salome, AZ, and surrounding communities.

Hip replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery are two of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed at Wickenburg Community Hospital Surgical Clinic. Our orthopedic surgery specialist Dr. Mitch Wagner uses several factors including your medical history, to help determine if joint replacement surgery is right for you. 

  • If a hip replacement is recommended, it means that it is the best treatment option to decrease hip pain to improve your quality of life. Typically, this is the approach taken after you’ve tried other measures such as injections, medication, or physical therapy.
  • As the largest joint in the body, the knee is a critical hinge for your leg. A knee replacement can reduce your knee pain, muscle weakness, and function issues. If Dr. Wagner determines that you are a good candidate for knee replacement, he will determine the best type of implant and surgical technique based on your medical history. 

Our Orthopedic Services Include:

  • Fracture and trauma treatment and care
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Non-surgical joint pain treatment
  • Arthroplasty – total joint reconstruction/replacement
  • Repair of the shoulder(s), knee(s), and hip(s)
  • Fractures & other injuries caused by aging or accidents
  • On-campus comprehensive ancillary services to support your full orthopedic recovery.
