Start your journey toward better health with personalized care from the convenient, local provider you trust.
Evaluation & Diagnosis
Your orthopedic specialist will learn as much as possible to find the reason for your symptoms so you receive the right treatment recommendations. You may need one or more exams, such as:
- Functional assessment – Measures how well you can do certain tasks and which movements cause pain or other symptoms
- Imaging scans – Show your bones, joints, or soft tissues (like muscles and ligaments)
- Nerve conduction studies – Place sticky electrode patches on your skin to record how fast electrical signals travel and look for nerve problems (such as carpal tunnel syndrome)
When your doctor explains your results, ask questions to make sure you understand your injury and steps you can take to recover.
If athletic activity causes pain or trouble moving, seek help from our experts in sports medicine. You’ll get back in action as soon as possible with nonsurgical care or minimally invasive procedures that limit your downtime. You may even benefit from new types of regenerative medicine, or biologics. These innovative approaches use natural substances to heal an injury.
Back, Neck & Spine Care
A bone or nerve condition in your spine can lead to pain, numbness, or weakness in other areas of your body. Take control of your symptoms with help from a fellowship-trained spine surgeon—an expert in nonsurgical and surgical back and neck care. You’ll have access to minimally invasive treatments and advanced technology designed to make you feel like yourself again.
Hip, knee, or shoulder replacement surgery may offer the long-term solution you’ve been seeking for arthritis pain. If other treatments haven’t helped, ask us if joint replacement is right for you.

If you need any surgical procedure, feel confident you’re in good hands. Our orthopedic surgeons have decades of experience and offer you the same level of care they provided in large health systems across the country.
