Orthopedic care is divided into general and specialty areas. General Orthopedics covers common musculoskeletal issues, offering foundational care for conditions like sprains, fractures, and arthritis using proven methods by qualified experts. EmergeOrtho—Blue Ridge Region goes further with specialty orthopedics, focusing on tailored treatments for individual needs.
Our physicians are board-certified or board-eligible with fellowship training in specific subspecialty areas of orthopedics. Both board certification and fellowship training require extensive in-depth research and practice in a specific area of the body.
Each of our locations has a team of specialists in each area of the body, so when you visit EmergeOrtho, you can be assured you are receiving the highest standard of care that fits your needs.
