Orthopedic injuries and conditions can be painful and frustrating. Getting treatment for them should be simple.
That’s why we created the St.Vincent Orthopedic Center, a state-of-the-art facility located on the 86th Street campus of St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital, built with an emphasis on making the treatment of orthopedic conditions as easy and patient friendly as possible.
The Center is designed to deliver efficient, high-quality care to patients by bringing together orthopedic experts into one state-of-the-art location. Housed within the Orthopedic Center are the specialized St.Vincent Center for Joint Replacement and the St.Vincent Spine Center programs.
A free online screening tool is available at the website Medicine and Movement.

At birth, we have about 130 bones in our body. By adulthood, some have fused together, and we have 206 bones. Sometimes, these bones need specialized care. St.Vincent orthopedic specialists provide comprehensive care of injuries and bone disorders for adults and children.
St.Vincent pediatric orthopedic specialists care for children through age 21 and treat fractures, spinal deformities like scoliosis, pediatric sports injuries, dislocated joints, neuromuscular diseases, such as cerebral palsy and spinal bifida, and foot deformities like club foot.
Almost half of new child visits to our pediatric orthopedic specialists are a result of a broken bone due to a fall—wrists are the most common injury.
The good news for children is that they heal almost twice as quickly as adults. One reason is that with the growth plates still open, their bones are covered by a thick lining that helps things heal quickly. Experts say for good bone health, children need to be active and exercise regularly.
If your child is injured, call your pediatrician. They can refer you to an orthopedic specialist, who will x-ray the injured area and provide treatment. During an emergency, visit the Emergency Room at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.
The St.Vincent Total Joint Replacement Center and St.Vincent Spine Center have earned the Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification for joint replacement and spine surgery, respectively. The Joint Commission is the nation’s premier healthcare accreditation entity.
St.Vincent Orthopedic Center is the only facility in Indiana to be recognized for its hip and knee replacement program. This marks the third time that the comprehensive Orthopedic Center earned the Joint Commission two-year certification. Along with earning top state honors, the St.Vincent Spine Center is the only facility in the Midwest to be granted the spine accreditation.
