Our experienced nurses, certified physician assistants and physical therapists assist patients in recovery.

Orthopedic surgery

When surgery is determined to be the best treatment, our patients can rest assured they are in good hands with our surgeons who share a breadth of experience and knowledge. They have extensive experience researching, inventing and practicing the latest techniques in orthopedic care. They are pioneers in their craft using the most advanced technology to treat a magnitude of orthopedic conditions.

Specialized joint care

Sometimes joint stiffness and pain requires surgery to repair and replace damaged joints from arthritis. The wear and tear of cartilage on your joints over time can get words if there is no intervention. Our orthopedists specialize in joint care, using a variety of advanced nonsurgical and surgical treatments tailored to each patient's needs and goals. We offer the following procedures to help with your arthritic pain:

Foot and ankle care

Limited mobility because of pain in your foot or ankle can significantly impact ability to lead a normal life.

Advanced bunion treatment

Bunions and hammer toes are a common foot abnormalities that are culprits of foot pain. Bunion pads and anti-inflammatory medication can provide relief and prevent the bunion from getting worse, but surgery is often needed to repair your damaged toe joint. We specializes in a unique bunion removal procedure that lets you immediately bear weight after surgery, preserving mobility and recover faster without casts.

Foot and ankle fractures

Fractures of the foot and ankle bones are another type of injury we treat often. Fractures can range from a small crack in the bone to complete separation and can be caused by a fall, trauma or sports or physical activity. People at higher risk of fractures, including those with low bone density (osteoporosis), bone tumors, cancer or brittle bone disease can even experience a bone fracture from normal, everyday activity.

We offer specialized knowledge and care for the treatment of foot and ankle fractures. Some fractures can be treated with rest and medication, while others require splits and/or surgery to heal properly.

Spine care

Our spine care program focuses on the management and treatment of patients with disorders of the spine including tumors, trauma, neurologic deficit, degeneration, scoliosis and more.

Our spine surgeons offer a variety of back and neck nonsurgical conservative and surgical treatment options to help relieve your pain and give you the support you need.
