Brigham and Women's Hospital

Dr. Chiodo (middle), foot and ankle surgeon at BWH, directs the surgical team that includes Eric Spayde (left).The Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is a 613 bed hospital for adults with an average daily orthopaedic patient census of 31. The Orthopaedic Service treats adult and adolescent patients with all types of musculoskeletal disorders, concentrating in the orthopaedic management of patients with arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis. This is enhanced by a large Rheumatology and Rehabilitation Service. Total joint replacements in both lower and upper extremity, major reconstructive surgery of the hand and upper extremity and stabilization of the diseased spine account for the majority of the operative cases. BWH houses a research lab principally in the field of arthritis and biomechanics of prosthetic joints. There are 38,278 outpatient visits, 2,250 in-patient surgery cases, 245 admit to observations, and 983 out-patient surgery cases performed at this institution. There are 18 staff orthopaedic surgeons, 12 orthopaedic residents and 8 orthopaedic fellows working in the Orthopaedic Department of the Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
