Bone & Joint Clinic

With you every step of the way

Saint George Hospital-University Medical Center (SGHUMC) founded the first Orthopedic Surgery Department in Lebanon back in 1954 headed by the freshly graduated late professor Emile Riachi.

Dr. Riachi was the leading early proponent of modern orthopedic practice in the country, and our department flourished under his leadership as the region’s Orthopedic Surgery Reference Center.

Dr. Alexandre Nehme was appointed Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery and Chief Medical Officer in 2017. He decided to launch the Bone & Joint Clinic as a Center of Excellence for treating musculoskeletal diseases including both Orthopedic Surgery & Rheumatology grouped by subspecialty.

The Bone and Joint Clinic is a state-of-the-art center designed to take care of a wide variety of bone, joint, spine and other musculo-skeletal conditions.
