It’s an exciting time of change for Altru’s orthopedics, sports medicine and sports training teams. There’s a new name, a new location and new procedures and programs now available to the residents of the Red River Valley and beyond.
Advanced orthopedic care from Altru’s specialists helps get you back to a pain-free active and enjoyable lifestyle as quickly as possible. Altru Advanced Orthopedics delivers personalized care for the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
Offerings of Altru Advanced Orthopedics is now located under one roof at Altru Professional Center. The clinic space will offer a new experience for our area, with an innovative self-rooming process available to patients. At check-in, patients are given a badge to wear during their visit along with a room assignment. Providers and nurses are able to monitor all patient locations and wait times through their badges on multiple digital screens in private staff areas. The goal of this new process is efficiency and reduced wait times for patients. The new space includes seven cast bays, two x-ray rooms and 24 exam rooms.
(Special thank you to our contractors who completed this project.)
Our orthopedics team is continually bringing advanced procedures to our region, helping patients get back to activities sooner rather than later. Some of these advanced procedures include anterior approach to hip replacement, cartilage restoration and arthroscopic superior capsular reconstruction. Offering these procedures at our local specialized orthopedic hospital, Altru Specialty Center, reduces the need for travel to top hospitals for this same level of care.
Altru Advanced Orthopedics will offer elite training and injury prevention through a partnership with EXOS, a world renowned athletic training and human performance institute. Sports Advantage powered by EXOS will offer youth, collegiate, pro and adult training. The program is currently located within the Sanny & Jerry Ryan Center for Prevention & Genetics. In September, it will move to a new 5,000 square foot facility within Altru Professional Center, outfitted with synthetic turf and some of the industry’s best equipment.
