Orthopaedics involves the treatment of your musculoskeletal system – your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

At Knoxville Hospital & Clinics (KHC), we’ve built an exceptional orthopaedic program – unlike those found at other rural critical access hospitals or many other hospitals in the country. We’re leading the way in advanced imaging technology to help us determine an accurate diagnosis; offer minimally invasive surgical techniques and arthroscopic procedures to help you recover faster; make rehabilitation, wellness and physical therapy an important part of your recovery and ongoing health; and are the first medical facility in central Iowa to offer NAVIO robotics-assisted partial knee replacement*.

KHC’s highly trained orthopedics teams includes: board-certified orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and clinical staff. Working in collaboration with you as the patient, each step of care and treatment is designed to meet your individual needs.
