Rapid Recovery - Total Joint Replacement
King’s Daughters Rapid Recovery total joint replacement program was
developed with the goals of helping patients recover more quickly, with
less pain and more complete restoration of function following joint replacement
surgery. The program is a more personal approach to care that helps you
get back on your feet again. Patients spend less time in the hospital
and get back to their normal lives in a matter of days.
Our surgeons are skilled in joint replacement procedures of all types,
including total hip and knee replacement. Orthopedists participating in
the Rapid Reovery program include
George Aitken, M.D.,
Steven Carawan, M.D.,
Felix Cheung, M.D., and
Gerry Trinidad, M.D. Dr. Trinidad performs surgeries at King’s Daughters Medical Center
Ohio in Portsmouth. The Rapid Recovery team includes nurses, physical
therapists and an orthopaedic nurse navigator.
Shoulder & Upper Extremities
Total shoulder replacement arthroplasty is a well-established surgery offered
by orthopedic surgeons
Sinan Ozgur, M.D., and
Michael Chambers, M.D. Among the different surgical options, this procedure provides the most
rapid and complete improvement in comfort and function for shoulders with
arthritis. Dr. Ozgur also performs total and reverse shoulder replacements.
Surgical Podiatry - Lower Extremities
Matthew Ellsworth, DPM, diagnoses and treats conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures
of the leg. A specialist in diabetic care of feet, Dr. Ellsworth offers
free community foot screenings. Most diabetes-related issues can be seen
through the feet including damaged nerves and blood vessels. Oftentimes,
feet can change shape causing ulcers and sores.
Sports medicine is a subspecialty of orthopedics that deals with the prevention,
diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered during athletic
activity. Sports medicine physician
Andy Gilliland, M.D., and orthopedic surgeon
Michael Chambers, M.D., specialize in treatment and rehabilitation of injuries so patients can
quickly return to athletic activities. Dr. Gilliland is team physician
for Paul G. Blazer football and baskeball; and Marshall University and
Kentucky Christian Univeristy. Dr. Chambers is team physician for Russell
football and basketball; and Marshall University.
Participating in sports places wear-and-tear on the body, and can lead
to orthopedic injuries. Athletes are susceptible to injuries that include
stress fractures and chronic pain, as well as tearing or stretching of
internal structures. Treatment for these conditions can involve surgery,
orthotics, physical therapy and rest.
Concussion is one of the most serious and prevalent medical problems in
high school athletics today. Concussion is common, but it is often difficult
to diagnose and treat. King's Daughters ImPACT program provides coaches
and athletic trainers with information that can help take the guesswork
out of concussion management and promote safe return-to-play decisions
