Combining state-of-the-art technology with a commitment to personal care, the staff at Johns Hopkins Bayview's Musculoskeletal Center provide a comprehensive range of services, including musculoskeletal care, arthoroplasty, and treatment and rehabilitation for sports injuries, trauma or spine conditions. A multi-disciplinary team treats patients ranging in age from late adolescence to the elderly, guiding them to safe and speedy recoveries.
Nurses at the Center have the opportunity to work with physicians to plan and coordinate patient care by assessing patient needs and designing individual approaches to treatment. Self-scheduling, a varied patient population and a team approach to patient care are just a few reasons why our nurses love what they do.
