Unity Point Methodist Hospital named as Top 100 orthopaedic program

DMOS surgeons are proud to operate at Methodist Hospital, which was recently named as a Beckers Top 100 orthopaedic hospital. The release stated, “The hospitals included on this list have orthopaedic surgery departments, programs or dedicated centers that have earned considerable recognition. Exceptional orthopaedic departments often include physicians who provide outstanding patient care, advance cutting-edge orthopaedic research and treat professional athletes. Many of these hospitals have earned recognition for orthopaedic excellence from U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, CareChex and Blue Cross Blue Shield.”

Their review also stated, “Iowa Methodist Medical Center (Des Moines), part of UnityPoint Health, includes a network of approximately 20 orthopaedic specialists. Physicians in the system’s orthopaedic program perform thousands of joint replacements each year — more than 1,500 total knee, 600 total hip and 90 total shoulders. UnityPoint’s Methodist, Lutheran and Methodist West hospitals have received recognition from Blue Cross Blue Shield as Blue Distinction Centers for hip and knee replacements and spine surgery, as well.”
