Jefferson Health

Osteomyelitis

Treatment of osteomyelitis is managed by Jefferson orthopedic surgeons in Philadelphia, with a focus on treating the infection and providing long-term care to prevent further complications.

Jefferson's multidisciplinary team of orthopedists, hematologists, infectious disease physicians, hyperbaric medicine physicians and radiologists can provide a full spectrum of operative and nonoperative care to patients with osteomyelitis.

If this condition is a result of a weakened immune system from sickle cell disease, HIV or cancer, our orthopedic surgeons will collaborate closely with your hematologist, infectious disease specialist and/or cancer specialist.
