At Bethesda North Hospital, we are proud of our record of success in helping orthopedic surgery patients improve their mobility and activity levels. Along with Good Samaritan Hospital, we perform more orthopedic surgeries than any other health care system in Greater Cincinnati, in part because we understand the needs of orthopedic patients.
The finest orthopedic doctors in the Cincinnati area work at Bethesda North because we have the facilities, technologies and experienced staff their patients need. Surgeons are assisted by operating room teams – including specialized nurses, surgical assistants and certified surgical technicians – that are dedicated to orthopedic surgery. They have unsurpassed expertise and knowledge of the latest techniques and have access to the latest equipment and technology for joint replacement surgeries such as minimally-invasive (small incision) and computer-guided equipment.

Bethesda North Hospital has inpatient nursing units that are exclusively dedicated to the recovery of orthopedic surgery patients. Our nurses and other caregivers understand orthopedic surgery and recovery. They are completely dedicated to working with post-surgical orthopedic patients. They provide compassionate, hands-on care and explain physicians’ orders for tests, exercises and diet during recovery. Their expertise and caring touch puts patients, and their families, at ease.
These units have a variety of features that help patients recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Every room is private and comfortably furnished. Each has a sofa that transforms into a bed for family members who wish to stay overnight. In addition, every room has a private bathroom equipped with raised toilets and other features that assist patients with recovery.
