Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
Whether you're a recreational or competitive athlete, an injury can limit your ability to perform at your personal best. At the American Fork Specialty Clinic our physicians work to help you return to your activity or port as safely and quickly as possible.
Orthopedic surgery is a diverse field with sub-specialties for different parts of the body. At the American Fork Specialty Clinic we offer the following sub-specialties:
- Hand Surgery
- Foot and Ankle Surgery
- Total Joint Replacement (Hips and Knees)
- Knee Surgery
- Shoulder Surgery
We also provide general orthopedic care for broken bones, muscle strains, and ligament sprains. Call us for a comprehensive list of our services.
Sports Medicine also treats medical conditions from exercise and activity such as exercise induced asthma and cardiovascular abnormalities.
Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement
Intermountain Health is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model.
CJR “bundles” the payment of all the services that are provided to patients during the hospitalization for surgery and 90 days after discharge. This requires all doctors, hospitals, and post-acute care providers to work closely together to provide high-quality care to patients undergoing total knee and hip replacement.
To provide more coordinated services, we have entered into Collaborator Agreements with orthopedic surgeons who perform total knee and hip replacement surgeries at our hospital. See the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Collaborator Selection Criteria policy:

Additionally, we will provide Total Joint Coordinator Nurses, who will work with patients prior to surgery and will follow the patients for 90 days after discharge to make sure recovery is going well and to coordinate any follow-up care. Learn more about the program and how it affects your care.
