My approach to treating patients
Hello, I'm Dr. Scott Oliver. I have been Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at the Jordan Hospital in Plymouth Massachusetts since 1995. ---Welcome to my orthopedic website, where you will find useful information concerning our office. Here you can find about our office hours, our location and the services we offer. You can also find valuable information about your orthopedic condition in the "Health Library" above. ---Our practice is one of the premier community programs in the state, with outstanding orthopedic surgeons, all with excellent credentials. At our practice we also have x-ray services, as well as an experienced therapists in both physical and occupational (hand) therapy. Together our group of professional health care providers can provide the highest quality orthopedic care in Massachusetts. ---The Jordan orthopedic surgeons have been awarded the coveted Five Star rating for our hip, knee and shoulder replacement outcomes, achieved only by a few Massachusetts hospitals. Check us out on the healthcare internet sites, and review our results; they can't be beat. Recent data in 2012 confirmed again that our orthopedic practice with the Jordan Hospital had the lowest rate of complications with total hip and total knee surgery in the Massachusetts, of over 60 hospitals in the state, including Boston! We have had no significant infections of our shoulder, hip and knee replacements in over two years! ---Now we have pioneered a new program of computer navigated hip and knee surgery. The results have been excellent and our orthopedic team has decreased the length of the "down time" associated with these major operations. Many patients have already benefited from these innovative procedures. Since 2003, we have now completed over 5000 total hip and knee replacements, using minimally invasive techniques, with computer technolgies. ---Furthermore, it has been helpful to be a Stryker consultant, getting information about new products and techniques. And we are now a MAKO site, with high tech coming into the operating room, with the addition of robotic surgery for partial knee replacements. We have been using the "round" Stryker Triathlon Knee Replacement since 2005 with great success. All of these new advancements result in a "fusion of new technique with new technology". ---We are excited to announce our "MRSA Program", a first for a community hospital that began January 2008. All patients scheduled for joint replacement at the Jordan are screened preoperatively for MRSA, the bacteria that can cause devastating infections. If a patient tests positive then a program of special cleansing and appropriate antibiotics is initiated at the time of surgery. This screening continues to help our results. ---We have included valuable medical information concerning various orthopedic conditions in the "Health Library". Some of these articles have been provided to us by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and some have been written by our office staff. Please feel free to browse through the various topics to find information that may be useful to you. We believe that it is very important for patients and their family members to understand their medical condition and the various treatments that may be offered. ---Our orthopedic surgeons are ready to provide you with the most up-to-date treatment. Because of our dedication to continuing medical education, we are on the "cutting edge" of orthopedic technology. I have offered surgical servces at the Jordan Hospital in Plymouth for over thirty years, and I am now on the active Attending Orthopedic Surgical Staff at the New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, where your surgical procedure can also be accomplished. ---We hope that the resources provided here will be helpful to you. It has been our goal to provide residents of the South Shore and Cape Cod and of the entire Commonwealth with excellence in orthopedic care. Our physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, radiologic technologists and office staff are dedicated to fulfilling this commitment to you. Our goal is to make your wish come true.
