New Facility to Centralize Orthopedic Care

UVA Orthopedics’ Ivy Mountain Project has one driving motivation: getting you back to doing what you love. The state-of-the-art outpatient facility will offer seamless care found in few other places—all in one, easily accessible setting.

Complete with walking gardens and outdoor therapeutic spaces, this world-class complex will provide on-site diagnosis, imaging, surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. In addition to nationally renowned expertise in a number of specialties, including hand, spine, sports medicine, foot and ankle, orthopedic trauma, sports concussions, and prosthetics and orthotics, Ivy Mountain will offer same-day hip and knee replacement—a boon that Dr. Bobby Chhabra, chair of UVA’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery, says will be one of the centerpieces of this building.

“The major advances in hip and knee replacement operations, including computer and robotic technology, as well as anesthesia and surgical techniques, will allow patients to go home the same day,” says Chhabra. “We’ll be able to provide the most innovative care and treatment technologies for our patients at a more competitive price.”

Set to open in 2022, the 195,000-squarefoot building will be a home base for healthcare professionals focused on helping patients improve their athletic performance, recover from injury, or prevent future incidents. The only facility of its kind between New York City and Atlanta, it will also offer unparalleled opportunities for ongoing research and education.
