Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine

In Orthopaedic Surgery, we provide surgical and non-surgical care to patients with injuries or diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This includes fracture care, treatment of injuries of the muscles, joints, or tendons, as well as degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Our Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine team also offers Orthopaedic Assessment and Intervention at our Today’s Care Plus at 1202 Medical Center Drive location. Our goal is to support patients in avoiding the long waits and high costs of the ER. We can see and treat all typical ortho-related ailments; including acute injuries, sprains, and fractures.
