John Capo

Patients with work-related or sports injuries and those with joint-related conditions can receive high-quality integrated orthopedic care and rehabilitation services in one convenient location in Newport.

Jersey City Medical Center brings their advanced expertise and innovative rehabilitation solutions to 100 Town Square Place in Newport. Patients in need of physical and occupational therapists can consult with surgeons from the hospital about possible treatment modifications in real time.

“Having advanced orthopedic care, on-site X-RAY and physical, occupational and hand therapy in one location allows for comprehensive, streamlined care that is easily accessible for patients,” said RWJBarnabas Health Medical Group provider John Capo, MD, vice chair of the Department of Orthopedics and chief of Hand Surgery at Jersey City Medical Center. “Together we are able to provide sophisticated techniques to treat and manage a range of orthopedic conditions under one roof.”

Rehabilitation services in Newport offers physical and occupational therapy, providing individually designed programs for patients of all ages based on comprehensive evaluation. Outpatient services can help patients who have sustained a serious injury, are recovering from a significant surgical procedure, or are suffering from a condition that affects their mobility.

Anne Lawson, who received comprehensive care to strengthen and improve the range of motion of her previously fractured ankle, found the personalized services and recovery plan returned her to an active lifestyle. An avid runner, Lawson said the treatment helped her return to running.

“My injury sidelined me from an activity that I really enjoyed,” Lawson said. “For me, it was a quality-of-life issue. Now that I’ve had the physical therapy, I’m able to resume running without pain. Having these services so close to home made it extremely easy for me.”

Additionally, Jersey City Medical Center orthopedic surgeons offer cutting-edge care at the Newport location, providing treatment options aimed at restoring patients’ mobility and quality of life.

The orthopedic team of board certified and specialty trained surgeons in the areas of trauma, hand injuries, fractures, and joint replacement are complimented by a staff of nurses and X-Ray technologists who are experienced in orthopedic services, care and treatment.
