Our new orthopedic center was built with you in mind. It offers the latest technology and a coordinated care approach to treat your pain. This means that on the day of your appointment, you can be seen by more than one doctor if needed and may be able to have all your tests done that same day (depending on your insurance coverage). When you leave, you will have a diagnosis and treatment plan designed to restore function and comfort.
If you have a more complicated issue, the entire team will work with you on a treatment plan that will result in the best possible results. This may mean that more than one day is needed for testing, consultation and thoughtful consideration of the best options to treat your problem successfully. This may include consultation with a surgeon.

In some cases, athletes are even held from school to allow the brain to rest.
