Orthopedic Surgery Services

Are you in need of an orthopedic surgery consultation? From sports injuries to diseases to joint replacements, Wickenburg Community Hospital offers a wide range of orthopedic surgery services. Because every patient’s situation and experience is unique, we treat each case individually and always work to get you back to your normal activities as soon as possible after surgery.

As one of the few remaining non-profit community hospitals owned and operated by its citizens, we are committed to patient excellence. We are proud to provide the highest level of care for those in our community. Orthopedic surgeries are performed on site in our state-of-the-art, 10,500 square foot, surgical and diagnostic center featuring the latest technology and quality resources.

Our orthopedic specialists, including physicians, nurses, and therapists, are highly trained and have years of experience honing their craft. Dr. Mitch Wagner, our orthopedic surgeon, studied at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine and the Cleveland Clinic, as well as completed additional fellowship training in orthopedic surgery and orthopedic trauma. He practiced orthopedic surgery for more than 15 years in Phoenix and Scottsdale before moving to Wickenburg to help develop our orthopedic surgery center program.

Hip joint replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery are some of the most common procedures at our orthopedic surgery center. If a hip replacement is recommended by our orthopedic surgery specialists, it means that it is the best treatment option to improve your quality of life and decrease hip pain. Typically, this is the solution after you’ve tried more conservative measures such as injections, medication, or physical therapy.

Similarly, if our orthopedic surgery specialists recommend a knee replacement, it means that it is more likely to decrease your pain levels than other conservative measures. 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. Dr. Wagner will determine the best type of implant and surgical technique based on your health.

Other orthopedic surgery services offered—along with hip joint replacement and knee replacement surgeries—at Wickenburg Community Hospital’s Surgical and Diagnostic Center include:

  • Joint replacements
  • Fracture treatment
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Foot and ankle care

Our orthopedic surgery specialists will walk you through pre-surgery preparations and after surgery care, along with the day of surgery information. We strive to help you prepare, both mentally and physically, for your orthopedic surgery procedure. At Wickenburg Community Hospital, we support our community and prioritize our patients.
