Our care extends well beyond the surgical repair of an orthopedic condition.
We are committed to helping our patients return to their normal activities
as quickly as possible. We believe this is best achieved by employing
experienced, licensed physical and occupational therapists who work directly
with our surgeons to complete comprehensive evaluations and customized
treatment programs. Available in all our locations, our physical therapy
facilities are complete with state-of-the-art equipment to meet all of
the needs of our patients.
Our environment of constant consultation and personalized care ensures
that every patient's rehabilitation is conducted safely and correctly.
That means that our patients can return to a lifestyle free from the limitations
caused by their orthopedic concerns.
