Patient Care

Excellence in orthopaedic diagnosis and treatment

Specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

At the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center we offer the resources of a large, university-related hospital with the personal care and attention of a smaller department.

Our team of dedicated, caring health professionals specialize in an interdisciplinary approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. We provide quality, cost-effective care to more than 35,000 patients each year from Nebraska, the Midwest, and around the world.

Our orthopaedic surgeons work closely with caring, experienced nurses and consult with physicians in other medical specialties to provide the latest comprehensive care. Our hospital partner, Nebraska Medicine, and physician practice group, Nebraska Medicine-Clinics, employ UNMC faculty who use the latest research breakthroughs to improve patient outcomes.

In 2019-20, our hospital partner, Nebraska Medicine, was again ranked as one of America's Best Hospitals, and the top hospital in Nebraska, by U.S. News & World Report. The medical center was also listed as high-performing in Orthopaedics.
