Live your life to the fullest

Our orthopaedics team treats adults and children with diseases, injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system— the body’s bones, muscles and joints, including ligaments, tendons, and nerves. From fractures, sprains, arthritis, or sports injuries, to full joint replacement, we are prepared to serve you. Our goal is to help people return to the level of function they had before their problem arose or their injury occurred. We care about you and your complete return do doing what you love.

We’re responsible for your care before, during and after surgery. Please see our Podiatry page for specific help with your feet, ankles, and legs.

Our Services

We take the time to know you and what you are aiming for in terms of outcomes. Each patient receives personalized care and attention from our team. We take the time to explain your condition and educate you as to the non-surgical and surgical options. Are you having Joint Replacement Surgery? We offer a free Joint Replacement School to guide individuals through their joint replacement journey.

Plus, there’s also a rehabilitation team that works with pre- and post-surgical patients, sports injuries and performance enhancements.

For appointments, referrals or consultation, please call (603) 542-7666
