Orthopedic Services at Sharp Grossmont Hospital

Sharp Grossmont Hospital is a leader in providing comprehensive orthopedic medical and surgical expertise in San Diego's East County. At Sharp Grossmont, our team of dedicated physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists and staff provide support and guidance through the continuum of care.

Our orthopedic patients work with specially trained physical therapists to achieve the highest level of independence possible through our outpatient physical therapy program at Brier Patch — located adjacent to the hospital.

Should patients need surgery, all orthopedic surgeries take place at the Grossmont Plaza Surgery Center — an outpatient center that is a convenient alternative to hospitalization. Patients return home soon after their procedure, without an overnight stay.
