The CHA Difference

CHA has a fantastic team of surgeons who trained at some of the nation's finest hospitals.

Our providers are specialists in Arthroplasty (joint surgery), Hand Surgery, Physical Medicine, Sports Medicine or Trauma. We are skilled in the latest techniques and are dedicated to meeting your needs.

CHA is not as big as some Boston Hospitals - and that's a good thing! This means we can give you more personal care. Whether you have a strain, sprain, broken bone, or need complex surgery, we can help improve your mobility and get you back to the activities you love.

Now seeing patients in Cambridge, Everett, Malden and Somerville.
