    Orthopedics

    The Orthopedic Surgery Department at Artesia General Hospital delivers personalized care to patients suffering from musculoskeletal disorders. Our services cover a range of surgery options with particular specialties in arthroscopic surgery, carpal tunnel surgery, fracture care and a variety of muscle and bone conditions. Our fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Marshall Baca, Dr. Jerry Baggs and Dr. Zhinian Wan, use the latest surgical techniques and advanced surgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques.

    We also specialize in sports medicine. Whether you are an active weekend sports enthusiast, college or high school athlete, or have a physically demanding job, the Sports Medicine team works closely with you to diagnose your problem and identify the appropriate treatment plan to help you maintain physical health; optimize your sports performance; and diagnose, heal and prevent injuries.

    The Orthopedic team takes a multidisciplinary approach to your recovery by bringing together orthopedic specialists, plus a team from radiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and orthopedic nursing—all to customize a responsive treatment for each patient.

    We set high expectations for your recovery and tackle any challenge to restore your function and range of motion. Our goal is to get you back to your favorite activities—whether it’s walking, playing a professional sport or keeping up with your grandchildren.
