Assessment Center

Get started at the Center for Musculoskeletal Health

When coming to the Center for Musculoskeletal Health, patients start with a complete assessment to see how to best move forward.

A complete assessment is done that looks at patient’s risk factors, this includes:

  • Behavioral health
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Diabetes
  • Nutritional assessment and body weight analysis
  • Opioid use
  • Smoking

Within the assessment center patients may also receive injury prevention screenings, such as:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Fall risk
  • ACL injury prevention

An example of how the Assessment Center works

A patient might come to us in preparation for a joint replacement surgery, but may need to lose some weight to reduce the surgical risk prior to undergoing a surgical procedure. Our team works with the medical weight-loss experts and/or surgical weight-loss specialists to design a plan to meet the patient’s individual goals around weight loss.
