Joint & Spine Center

The Christ Hospital has celebrated many firsts over the years, including performing the first ceramic hip replacement in the U.S. in 1982. Now, we are proud to bring another first to Greater Cincinnati: The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center.


The center provides our valued patients even better access to care—from physical therapy for a sports injury to the most complex spine disorders. Families are now able to help care for their loved ones every step of the way, closer to home.


The Joint & Spine Center features 87 private inpatient rooms, 12 operating rooms, physical, occupational and speech therapy services, interventional pain management services, advanced imaging services, electrodiagnostics, conference and education
facilities, and physician and administrative offices.  View a virtual tour of The Joint & Spine Center.
