Penn Orthopaedics brings together teams of physicians, surgeons, nurses and physical therapists who have a special focus in diagnosing, treating and studying certain types of orthopaedic conditions. We call these areas of focus or specialties "programs and centers."

Our programs and centers allow us to bring new advancements in technology and more treatment options to the forefront of orthopaedic medicine, as well as create more personalized treatment plans for our patients.
