Orthopedic care

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.

Orthopedic services we offer

Our orthopedic center offers surgical and non-surgical treatment options for orthopedic conditions like knee, hip and back pain.

Treatments we provide

Whenever possible, we look to nonsurgical or minimally invasive approaches — such as physical therapy — to resolve your situation. When surgery is necessary, our surgeons are there from diagnosis through recovery. We offer education and guidance so that you can have the greatest understanding of your condition and get back to doing what you love.

Physical therapy

Whether you are dealing with a new injury or a chronic condition, we often start with physical therapy to help you gain mobility and strengthen the affected muscles. Examples of physical therapy include therapeutic exercises, as well as heat, ice, ultrasound or electrical stimulation therapies.

Physical therapy is usually included as an important part of your treatment plan to help the postoperative recovery process.


Orthopedic conditions are sometimes severe enough to require surgical treatment. No matter the complication, having an open dialogue with your surgeon is highly encouraged. Our surgical team is prepared to perform whatever procedure is best for you, from joint replacement to carpal tunnel surgery.

If surgery is necessary, make sure you have someone to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours after your procedure. Don't hesitate to talk to our orthopedic doctors if you have additional questions about what to expect during or after your procedure.

Surgery is available on an outpatient basis, and our surgery center is open Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 3:00pm.
