What Do We Do?
Our Orthopedic Clinic provides medical and rehabilitative services to patients with problems resulting from orthopedic injuries, and diseases of the neuromusculoskeletal system. The Orthopedic Clinic follows patients who require a cast or follow-up fracture care.
Our team will work with you to develop a personalized plan of care, which may include stretches, exercise, casting or surgery.
Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in a wide array of orthopedic services, including general orthopedics, arthroplasty (knee, shoulder and hip), total joint replacement surgery, arthroscopic surgery, and fracture care including non-union, malunion and post-traumatic deformities.
